DiEM25 lands in Paris

DiEM25 lands in Paris

After our wildly successful Italy tour, DiEM25 co-founder Yanis Varoufakis is now in Paris to spread our movement’s message and strengthen its machinery in France. Here’s what he will be doing:

  • putting DiEM25’s proposals to key players in the French political landscape, to test the ground for potential allies
  • meeting local DiEM25 activists, to expand our movement’s base in France (one of a handful of countries that already has a national coordination structure for all things DiEM25)
  • launching the French edition of his book Adults In The Room, which details his confrontation with the EU establishment as Greece’s finance minister in 2015, laying the foundation for the movement that became DiEM25. (In case you missed it, there is also a film of ‘Adults’ in the works!)
