Carl Gershman #Forum2000online

COVID-19 is what you might call a battle of narratives between authoritarian countries and democracies. The democracies are right now going through a real crisis and COVID-19 pandemic sharpens that crisis, says Carl Gershman, President of the National Endowment for Democracy.

A group of leading international NGOs and important personalities have recently came up with a statement concerned with this development called “A Call to Defend Democracy”, which is warning that the freedoms we cherish are under the threat from governments that are using the pandemic to tighten their grip on power. 

Please, find more on the Democracy Letter here.
