DiEM25 members approve five new proposals

DiEM25 members from across Europe and beyond have had their say on a handful of important topics

May 22 saw the conclusion of five DiEM25 member votes, on matters ranging from finance, to pharmaceutical patents as well as the energy sector.

Below we break down exactly what was voted on, and how our members felt on each topic.

(Greece) Fiscal Transactions System “DIMITRA”

With its aim of liberating the people of Greece from debt bondage within the Eurozone, MeRA25 is looking to legislate its 7+1 Policies agenda including the fiscal transactions system entitled “Dimitra”.

Although MeRA25 is not proposing an exit from the Eurozone and rejects the idea of a parallel currency, “Dimitra” is seen as a remedy against any kind of blackmail if the ECB were to shut down Greece’s banking system again, converting “Dimitra” into a fully-fledged Greek national currency.
