The right to democracy is a fundamental human right. The right to elect your leader in free elections should be guaranteed everywhere, in every country and on every continent.

The Democracy Initiative works like this:

We draw attention to sites on the net working with democracy making sure people will find them. If enough persons read about the democracy problems in the world today there will soon be lots of people concerned about it. With a lot of people concerned, politicians will soon worry. With worried politicians there will soon be enough political will to make sure that we start getting elections even in the less developed contries.
