You know where we stand. In parliament, AD would represent consistent, responsible and progressive politics.
1. We will continue to be the strongest defenders of what is left of

anti-racism; decriminalization of drugs for personal use whilst helping

rights, environmental justice, sustainable development, ecological
modernization, and, last but not least, the reform in the institutional
set-ups for the enhancement of democracy, you know where you stand with
the Greens. Voting for the PN and PL would mean voting for stagnant
You know where we stand.
Make history, Vote AD.
