Today is our second anniversary. For two years now, DiEM25 has been preserving the spirit of the Greek Spring of 2015 across Europe.
Now, as we are preparing to present our program to Europeans across the Union via the ballot box, the time has come to launch the Greek DiEM25 affiliate that will return the spirit of the Greek Spring to the country that gave birth to it!
On March 26, DiEM25 members will gather in Athens to constitute ourselves as a political party that participates in European, national and local elections — but also as an indivisible part of the transnational, radical Europeanist movement DiEM25.
And right now, DiEMers across Europe are voting on the party’s name and guiding framework:
- European Internationalism (we are not just going to “remain in Europe” – we ARE Europe’s democratic future)
- Economic Rationality (which the troika and the national oligarchies of Europe have been denigrating for years)
- Social Emancipation (from Demeritocracy, from Indignity, from Fear, from ruthless Class War and Austerity, from Nationalism and from the Oligarchy)
Our Greek political party will start its life with an army of committed volunteer activists across Greece. A set of realistic proposals to make Greece’s social economy viable again, that is embedded in DiEM25’s European New Deal. The support of progressive leaders like Naomi Klein, Brian Eno and Noam Chomsky. And of course, the involvement of key Greek political players like Yanis Varoufakis who believe passionately that despite what the Establishment says, there is an alternative to Greece’s — and Europe’s — current course.
But all electoral actions cost money. And unlike our Establishment opponents and incumbents, DiEM25 rejects corporate and institutional funding. This means we are beholden only to you and the principles and ideals we share.
We need elected officials determined to fearlessly represent the will of millions over the whims of the ruling elite. There’s only one way to accomplish this: by building a transnational political force that can support and elect candidates across Europe who are neither chosen nor funded by the oligarchs, but by you!
So we’re asking you to help move forward our electoral actions in Greece.
Your contribution, no matter how small, will help establish DiEM25 in Greece — Ground Zero of the Eurocrisis, and bring about the change that Greece and Europe desperately need!
Together we can change the status quo.
