  • Hello, friends.

  • I'm Audrey Tang, Taiwan's digital minister and a proud signatory of the open letter.

  • "A Call to Defend Democracy."

  • The truth is: We live in dangerous times.

  • The pandemic is threatening global health.

  • Authoritarianism is threatening global freedom.

  • We cannot stand idly by in the face of this challenge to democracy, to human rights and to the rule of law.

  • Collective action is just what the doctor ordered.

  • This is why I wholeheartedly support International IDEA's initiative to advance democratic political processes while building more resilient societies.

  • Necessity is the mother of invention.

  • We took this proverb to heart when creating the Taiwan Model.

  • It shows the effectiveness of an All Hands on Deck approach in combating coronavirus and in defending democracy.

  • Collaboration, friendship, support, transparency and trustthese are our watchwords.

  • They're also the foundation on which all segments of society are pulling together and sacrificing for the greater good.

  • Lives are saved and opportunities created for dialogue and civic engagement.

  • This strengthens the social sector and puts us in good stead to emerge from the crisis shipshape and Bristol fashion.

  • I invite those who care, those who wish to make a difference to sign the letter and join the cause.

  • As International IDEA Secretary-General Casas-Zamora sagely stated: "We must not let democracy become just another casualty of the coronavirus."

Hello, friends.
