US midterm elections: the fight continues!

The 2018 midterm elections in the United States will be remembered as a rebuke to president Donald Trump.
Heading into the elections, president Trump campaigned on a toxic mix of fear, ‘fake news,’ and sustained efforts to suppress voting among low-income and communities of color. But voters said no. High participation rates, the youngest women elected, the first openly gay governor elected, more great news from Kansas: the so-called ‘Blue Wave’ of Democrat participation helped them to take control of the House of Representatives.
But it was not the Democratic Party that won. It was progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that emerged from the grassroots with a policy agenda to address real people’s problems and without ties to big corporations and lobbyists.
Now, the real fight begins — not only against the corruption of the far-right and the financial elites, but also to raise up the real voices of the people: a fight for democracy. American progressives are not alone in this fight. Europeans, including DiEM25, are fighting alongside them, building bridges around the world!
