The Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 stands with the rebels of Extinction Rebellion and residents of the UK who have taken to the streets to demand action on the climate emergency.

We condemn the draconian measures of the UK government to undermine their fundamental rights to assembly and peaceful protest — staples of a democratic society. 

Environmental breakdown is accelerating, while governments go on with business as usual. DiEM25 joins Extinction Rebellion in calling for civil disobedience – as a basic democratic right – against ecological destruction. 

It is through constructive disobedience that some our fundamental rights have been won, it is through constructive disobedience that our future can be won again.

We need a Green New Deal — in the UK, Europe and around the world.
