Joint Statement on the rising tensions between Greece and Turkey

The perpetrators of war, the profiteers of the fossil fuel industry and political leaders wedded to an unsustainable economic system are, today, escalating tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean — especially between Greece and Turkey.

Intent on drilling for oil and gas everywhere, with lethal effect on the local environment, the earth’s climate and the prospects of peace and prosperity for the peoples of the region, this harmful fusion of oligarchs, warmongers and politicians with vested interests are working diligently toward dividing and ruling over the people so as to rob them of their future.

DiEM25, as we state in our manifesto, is committed to an Ecological Europe engaged in genuine world-wide green transition; a historically conscious Europe that seeks a bright future without hiding from its past;  an Internationalist Europe that knows that no European can be free until humans everywhere are free, a peaceful Europe de-escalating tensions in its neighbourhood and beyond.

That is why at a time of increasing tensions, DiEM25 chooses instead to work towards the conversion of the Aegean and the East Mediterranean into a Sea of Peace, Cooperation, Shared Renewable Energy and shared green prosperity.
