Founding statement of the Grassroots Movement Democracy Now, dated 12 September 1989. The movement emerged from the oppositional “Initiative for Rejection of the Practice and Principle of Separation”, founded in 1986. As the SED considered the foundation of political associations a violation of the constitution, Democracy Now never applied for official registration.
