Today’s Dutch referendum on the EU’s expansionist agreement with Ukraine really is the people’s referendum.
It wasn’t triggered by politicians or political parties, but by a determined group of well-organised, highly-motivated individuals.
GeenPeil, a project stemming from the popular Dutch blog GeenStijl, collected some 420,000 signed, verified, signatures triggering this referendum. It is an extraordinary achievement that highlights how western democracy is evolving.
