Dear fellow young Greens,

For years now, young Greens have been organising and connecting with each other internationally, using the messaging application Telegram.

As you may know, Telegram saw a surge of incoming users in the recent weeks due to everything that has been going on with WhatsApp and Parler. Apparently, there are cases of Telegram channels being shut down due to people going in and posting pornography and direct calls to violence.

After seeing this, Federation of Young European Greens’ office has decided to take the following precautionary measures:

We changed the group settings of the general FYEG Telegram chat from public to private. If you would like to invite a friend, colleague, or activists to the FYEG general Telegram chat: write a direct message to one of the group administrators, or; write a message in the FYEG general Telegram chat, tagging asking one of the group admins to add someone to the chat.

Make sure to share the contact information (Name, Telegram handle, and phone number) in your request
We checked recent new members that had joined and saw that no one new has been added to the Group in the last weeks.

We ran a check for all other FYEG chats that exist and can conclude that all of these are private, meaning that members can only join when they are added my the group’s admin

We will continue monitoring all FYEG chats and screening new members that are added

Note there are two public broadcast channels that FYEG administers, but since only the owner can send messages (posts are one-way), there is no risk of infiltration. This is the case for the Telegram broadcast channel Green Team and Young Greens, which you are welcome to join.

You can contact our office via [email protected] for any concerns or questions regarding the security of our Telegram chats.

2020-03-27 18:27:10 Our Response and Demands to Fight COVID-19

We must fight the #CoronaCrisis without leaving anyone behind.

This crisis shows us the value of a social Europe & we will continue fighting for it during & after this pandemic.

This is not a Chinese, Italian, or Iranian problem, but a global one we can overcome together. Read our 10 demands during the crisis to support global and European efforts against #COVID19 

A quick and widespread introduction of a universal basic income stimulus.

Freeze all evictions, all residential rents. Provide a safe home for the homeless.

Freeze all loan and debt payments.

Ban the firing of people, acknowledge that supermarket employees and delivery workers are providing vital services, and ensure their safety at work.

We denounce the war-like rhetoric used by Heads of State, unilateral introduction of internal borders, and Schengen borders.

Border measures should not affect the right to asylum, right to family reunification or family life.

The EU and its Member States should start a formal cooperation for use of national and EU funds, medical resources, treatment of patients. This solidarity should be extended to all the accession and neighbouring countries of the EU.

This pandemic is a global crisis. Denounce all forms of xenophobia and racism immediately. The EU must be ready to provide international support when the COVID-19 crisis reaches poorer countries.

Address the intersectionality of the crisis: women*, people with disabilities, undocumented, migrants, poor, LGBTQI+, people of color, and racialised communities are always left behind in times of crisis and governments must ensure measures that vulnerable communities are the first with access to resources.

We should ensure that the investments during and after the crisis do not contribute to environmental destruction and we should stick to the plan of demanding a real #ClimateLaw.

Initiatives, like #FlattenTheCurve, communities working together to take care of the vulnerable & performing songs on balconies to keep our spirits high show that people united will never be divided!

Stay home, stay united, show solidarity and demand action from your local governments to solve this crisis!
