The future of Denmark in Europe


On Wednesday, you will get to vote (if you have Danish citizenship) on the future of Denmark in Europe. See here the main argument from every political party: 

  • Venstre (Liberals): Vote Yes, so that Denmark can take responsibility. Should we be a country that looks at others on how they take responsibility or should we participate? 
  • SF (Socialists): Vote Yes, because we should stand together in Europe, especially when we are threatened by Russia and China. We need to organize to be able to defend ourselves. 
  • Nye Borgerlige (Libertarian Nationalists): Vote No, because we know what we have. We don’t know what’s coming if we change things. 
  • Liberal Alliance (Libertarians): Vote Yes, so that Denmark can participate in European military cooperation. 
  • Socialdemokratiet (Social Democrats): Vote Yes, because we need to stand together against Russia. 
  • DF (Social Nationalists): Vote No, because the EU already decides too much. We have NATO that secures our freedom. We don’t need more EU. 
  • Alternativet (Green Progressives): Vote Yes, because we should be at the decision-making table when our common defense and security strategy is discussed. 
  • Radikale Venstre (Social Liberals): Vote Yes, because we should take responsibility for Europe’s safety and security. 
  • Konservative (Conservatives): Vote Yes, as the Danish Parliament will further be able to say “yes” or “no” to participation in military missions. At the moment, it can only say “no”.
  • Enhedslisten (Red-Green Alliance): Vote No, as Danish soldiers should not be sent on missions down in Africa. 
  • Frie Gronne (Free Greens): Vote Yes, because we don’t lose sovereignty, we actually gain the power to shape the future of Europe. 
  • Moderaterne (Moderates): Vote Yes, because we cannot always rely on the USA to protect us, especially when they elect presidents like Donald Trump.
