#M100SC participant Monika Garbačiauskaitė-Budrienė about challenges for the West

“Democracy in the West faces various challenges, but it is a normal ongoing process, subject of open discussion. What is amazing is how dark powers manage to use democracy advantages for their purposes. Presenting pure propaganda and disinformation as an “alternative opinion”, trolling and mobbing in news websites and social networks, distorting the truth, trying to influence election results in other democracies. All this brings new challenges – how to limit the effect of dishonest attempts to undermine our core values and protect these values, like freedom of speech, at the same time.”
