The list, explained Cappato presenting the program, “focuses on the digital transition towards democracy for the enhancement and protection of the tools of democracy buried during the previous legislature, such as referendum and the popular initiative laws never discussed, starting with those for the legalization of euthanasia and cannabis. We are launching an invitation to those who care about rights and democracy to apply with us to the site ”.

Cappato e Virginia Riverco-chairs of Eumans, with Marco PerducaPresident of the Committee promoting the referendum for Legal Cannabis, explained how the Referendum and Democracy list was created to guarantee the equality of access to civic participation and politics for anyone who enjoys civil rights in Italy and in the European Union: “The Prime Minister Mario Draghi and the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella did not respond to the request for activate the digital signature immediately for none of the lists currently out of Parliament ”, denounces Fiume. “With this direct action of ours we continue the dialogue initiative with those who still have the power to allow this modality of participation – as was done for the referendum – and broaden participation in the elections on 25 September to those people who are currently discriminated against.
