Real State of the Union

Highlights from our ‘Real State of the Union’ event

On September 9, 2017, in Brussels, we brought together 1,500 people and a set of star speakers (including former Ecuador President Rafael Correa) to put forward a real progressive alternative for the EU. As political scientist Pedro Moniz stated, we were able to gather more attention than Juncker’s State of the Union speech itself.
And in the run-up to the evening event, we held a workshop where DiEM25 activists from across Europe collaborated on how to take our movement’s work to the next level.
Here’s a video of highlights from the day.
 


 
And now we’re in the process of deciding our next move: the unfolding of an electoral wing to bring our progressive agenda to ballots everywhere in the Union!

Join us and help us move Europe forward! >>
