DiEM25-France ready to shake Europe!

DiEM25 France ready to shake Europe!

Last weekend, DiEM25 France held a gathering in a Parisian café with Yanis Varoufakis. Here’s a quick report:
Old and new DiEMers, including representatives of our Provisional National Collective (PNC), got together with Yanis on Sunday. We discussed the movement’s social and economic policies, how these connect to the current French reality and political landscape, and exchanged ideas on how to forward our movement’s goals in light of the increasing political fragmentation.

All those present agreed: We are determined to compromise as we gain ground in the emerging French political space – but our efforts shall never come at the expense of our principles. And this is important in the context of our current “electoral wing” process: we should seek to occupy institutional spaces for the sake of change, not power, nor empowering others to keep conducting ‘business as usual.’
In the months ahead, and in light of the ongoing DiEM25 debate about developing an electoral wing, DiEM25 France stands ready and eager to step up our pan-European effort to shake Europe.
Here is a short interview with Yanis right after our meeting:
