Lorenzo Marsili vs Marion Le Pen

DiEM25 vs Front National

DiEM25’s Lorenzo Marsili takes on Front National’s Marion Le Pen on Italian TV.

 
Here’s one reason to set your alarm early tomorrow: DiEM25’s Coordinating Collective member Lorenzo Marsili will face off against Front National’s Marion Le Pen in a live-streamed debate.
The hour-long confrontation will start at 8am CET on La7’s Omnibus News show.
Marion Le Pen, is a young French MP who is seen as the rising star of the country’s extreme right. She is the granddaughter of Front National founder Jean-Marie Le Pen and niece of party’s current president Marine Le Pen, and recently embraced Donald Trump’s election victory by answering “yes” to an offer from his team to work together.
 “The Front National and the far-right across Europe and beyond responds to the crisis of the old order with an even older tactic: scapegoating,” said Lorenzo ahead of the encounter. “They blame the economic and democratic bankruptcy of our system on those who suffer the most, channelling the fear, anger and pain caused by the crisis on refugees and migrants.”
“We refuse to choose between establishment and fascism. We believe there is a third space, one that responds to misanthropy with solidarity, to disintegration with unity, to racism with human rights, to neoliberalism with equality.”
We’re bracing for a heated exchange. Tune in if you can, and let us know you’re up watching using the #DiEM25vsFN hashtag!
