Jingling for a Change
There are dozens of pieces of evidence for the fact that our state has been kidnapped, and their number is increasing: for instance, cases like Gorila, Váhostav or the CT scanner. Even though their number is so high, not a single influential person behind these cases was convicted. The drawbacks of the system help the state abductors.

Help us to enforce that before the parliamentary election 2016, political parties agree to a set of system changes that will limit the space for the impunity of state abduction. More about the project.
The goal of this initiative is to enforce that before the parliamentary election 2016, political parties agree to a set of system changes in the following key areas:
- Let us keep police far from the hands of the politicians
- Let us prevent the prosecutors from being biased
- Let us put pressure on judges to be highly responsible
- Let us make controlling functional
- Let us reveal letter box companies
- Let us disconnect public officials from sources of extra income
It is quite a sad thing to say that 25 years after the Velvet Revolution, Slovak democracy doesn't work. Our representatives that we choose in an election do not govern primarily according to the expectations of the citizens. They take into account especially the expectations of high ranking public figures and oligarchs, with whom they have background connections. They have the real power in their hands and they use it to influence the allocation of public funds according to their interests. They also influence mechanisms that ensure their impunity. In reality, citizens do not have the state under control – it has been kidnapped.
There are dozens of pieces of evidence for state abduction and their number is increasing: there is much more than cases like Gorila, Váhostav or the CT scanner – they only had the best media coverage. Even though their number is so high, not a single influential person behind these cases was convicted. The drawbacks of the system help the state abductors – the flaws make it impossible to control them, limit their sphere of influence, accuse, investigate and convict them.
For a long time, our organisations have been engaged in helping people in Slovakia in different areas. However, we always have to cope with strong background influences, non-functioning institutions and waste of public funds.
We're bothered by apathy and the feeling that change is impossible. We are convinced that citizens have powers that they do not make use of and that the politicians and oligarchs are afraid of. Citizens might not be able to reverse state abduction by a single vote but they can use elections to force their representatives to implement system changes and specific measures that will limit the space for impunity of state abduction.
We want to enforce changes in the individual key areas that will limit the space for the impunity of the powerful. You can read a detailed list of them here: www.strngamzazmenu.sk .
In the first phase of the campaign, we are approaching the public in order to get public support for the enforcement of these measures.
Then we will appeal to the political parties to agree to this proposal. The more people we are able to approach and the more supporters we will have, the greater pressure can we exert and the more expectations can we have towards the political parties. Now they do what they want, because the citizens let them do it.
After the election we will control how the political parties fulfil their obligations and put public pressure on the implementation of these system changes.
Help us awake the already apathetic public. Help us exert public pressure on the political parties, so that they cannot afford to decline these proposals. Let us leave our children and future generations with a country they won't want to leave. We will be very grateful if you support this citizenship initiative also financially.
Well-known personalities and honest entrepreneurs have been supporting us as well. They do not like this non-transparent environment. We were promised that thanks to their contributions, we will be able to double each euro you donate.
Thank you again.
