    Note: In 2014 this ECI was wrongly declared as inadmissible by the European Commission until the decision was reversed by the High Court in 2017. It had not collected any signatures as a legally registered ECI, but in 2015 it had organized a “self-organized ECI” with more than 3 million supporters. That means it tried to apply the ECI’s formal rules and organized an informal ECI on a non-registered base. This ECI is only mentioned here for formal reasons. It ultimately was registered by the EC even so there was no intention anymore by the organizers to collect any signatures.
