DiEM25 supports "Ne da(vi)mo Beograd"

Dear comrades,
We have been following the situation in Serbia and especially last happenings related to the project “Beograd na vodi”. We would like to express our full support to the initiative “Ne da(vi)mo Beograd”, as your activities and dedication may be significant not only for Serbian popular uprising and democratic resistance to the rule of capital and private interest in Serbia, but also for the struggle of the same kind in the whole region and Europe.
By addressing issues such as lack of transparency and absence of people’s consent regarding the project “Beograd na vodi”, you have shown the willingness to contribute to the common struggle of European peoples for the right to decide about their city by themselves. In the light of reawakening of European peoples, whose voices have illuminated the incapacity of European elites to meet the real needs of their citizens, your initiative sent a strong message of compliance with ever wider European resistance to non – democratic tendencies. Your elites, same as majority of other national and supranational administrations, elites and bureaucratic structures, have arrived ever closer to the dead-end of legitimacy by ignoring the needs of people of Belgrade and Serbia.
Concretely, the lack of transparency and already evident machinations that have been following the project of “Beograd na vodi” from the very beginning left no space for citizens to be trustful to their local and national governments. The unacceptable demolition of buildings in Savamala district that turned out to be organized by the local authorities in spite of the mayor’s initial denial of any enrollment of the local government, indeed leaves you no space for patience either. This is why, the movement for democracy in Europe, DiEM, fully supports the people of Belgrade and Serbia in its endeavors to leave no space for any alternative to democracy.
On behalf of DiEM25,
Yanis Varoufakis, Srećko Horvat, Filip Balunović
