Digital

Digital technologies enable us to communicate, travel, work, learn, study and socialize better – across national borders. According to the principles of the Internet, digital networking ensures more participation, more involvement, more knowledge for all and thus puts our democracy on a broader basis.

But in recent years, digital technologies have been used to concentrate power and wealth in a few hands. Google, Facebook and Co. control ever larger parts of the economy and the shaping of political opinions in Western countries. In China, digitization is being used to totally control society, so that any dissent can be nipped in the bud.

More than ever, we need freedom and justice. I am fighting for a solidary, green and feminist digitalization – for everyone.
