Another democracy is possible, let's reinvent it together!
Imagine a real democracy, including everyone and allowing us to answer serenely and efficiently to the crucial issues of our century, whether they are ecological or social. It is urgent that citizens can get involved and make their voices heard. But to do this, we must reinvent democracy.
Switzerland is certainly a direct democracy, often envied throughout the world. But here too, many things need to change: money dominates ideas, ⅓ of the population is deprived of the right to vote and politics is only accessible to traditional parties and lobbies. Indeed, it requires a lot of money, time, and means.
Democratizing our society is critical in the years to come if we want to imagine a bright future. It is urgent to extend the power of decision by and for the greatest number through a true political, economic and territorial democracy. For this, citizens must act! And it starts today with a simple donation.
Together, we are a huge force!
An ambitious campaign for democracy
AG!SSONS proposes to launch the largest campaign for democracy ever seen in Switzerland. To do this, we need to raise 100,000 CHF in 6 weeks!
Once we have raised CHF 30,000, we will launch a national petition for Legislative Citizens’ Chambers, composed of citizens (like you!) selected by lot. Thanks to these, political decisions will serve us all and not only multinationals and lobbyists.
When we raise 50,000 CHF, we will also launch 4 popular initiatives in the canton of «Vaud» on the theme of democracy. These initiatives aim to make the consideration of popular initiatives faster in view of the emergencies we are going through, to allow people living in Switzerland for several years without having the nationality to express themselves politically, to make popular initiatives more accessible to citizens and to ask the State to actively promote democracy in the whole society.
When we collect 70,000 CHF, AG!SSONS will launch, based on the national petition, popular initiatives for Legislative Citizens’ Chambers in several cantons.
Finally, when we will obtain 100,000 CHF, AG!SSONS will organize the first great weekend of democracy in Switzerland in 2023. We will have exceptional personalities, and you will be our guests of honor. This event is intended to become the true «Rendez-Vous of Democracy» of national importance that will inspire citizen change throughout the country for years to come.
We need to reinvent democracy - let’s make Switzerland an example to the world again!
