In the face of authoritarian expansion, the democratic camp must respond to destructive challenges in order to protect the balance between social well-being and individual freedom.

Once people from all over the world can establish a unique and common interactive space, they can express their voices across ideological gaps and reveal common values at a glance.
We call on our democratic partners to pursue digital resilience side by side with Taiwan, and to show the world the tenacity of democracy.
