EU Bureaucrats’ worst nightmare

Something is happening across Europe... For the first time in history, a group of ordinary citizens has grabbed the attention of the bureaucrats in Brussels.

Yesterday, Libertas were attacked because we invited YOU – European people - to run as candidates in the European Election. Why would Brussels NOT want real people to be a part of the election? Because a movement of the people is their worst nightmare.

For too long, unelected bureaucrats - the same people who got us into this economic crisis - have been able to grab power and make decisions in back rooms, with no accountability and no vote by the people. Libertas puts an end to that. As Declan said, “We’re coming whether they like it or not.”

And, we are coming in big numbers. In the last few days, tens of thousands of you have signed our petition demanding a referendum on ANY new European Constitution or Treaty which transfers more power to Brussels. The people deserve a say.

But, the only way the people will get a say is with a grassroots movement demanding change. That’s why the most important thing you can do today is to grow our movement.

Please sign the petition and forward it on to all of your friends.

The other 190 parties in the European Parliament don’t understand. They are content to take the people out of the process, relying on the same old politicians and the same old, tired ideas. They are happy for you to never even know the name of your local MEP or the 27 European Commissioners who make up to 80% of the laws affecting your life.

Libertas has a different approach…we are counting on YOU. If we continue to rely on hundreds of national parties with their own private, parochial and often petty political interests, we will NEVER change the status quo in Brussels. When you vote for any of these other parties, what you are really voting for is a weak Europe, a Europe that gives you no real say, and a continuation of the mess in Brussels.

Libertas began this movement because we believe that it’s time to take Europe back for the people. We stood up to the Brussels bureaucrats in Ireland and won… now our movement is spreading across Europe.

But there are only 42 days to go until the June election. What you do now really matters.

Please invite all of your friends to join our movement.

If you want a strong, democratic Europe that provides a real solution to the economic crisis; if you want a Europe where ONLY elected representatives make the laws; if you want a referendum on any Constitution; if you want to hold Brussels to account; if you want to renew the hope that we all had for Europe, then help build the first true party for Europe’s people. A party dedicated to openness, accountability, transparency and democracy.

If millions of us act together, as Europeans, we will create a new hope for the future – a Europe where Brussels is efficient, focused on creating jobs, restoring our economy and is accountable to the people.

There are millions of others like you who want a new Europe – they are your friends, your work colleagues, family members, neighbours, and members of your community and now we need you to get them to join our cause.

Our movement is in your hands. It will live or die based on what you do now.

Please email everyone in your contacts. Ask your friends. And get just one more person to join the movement today.
