A Citizen Takeover of the EU Institutions | March 25, Brussels, BOZAR

With xenophobic, anti-European, forces gaining ground everywhere in Europe and an inane Establishment hellbent on continuing the same failed business-as-usual policies that condemn citizens to lives of poverty, precarity and insecurity, DiEM25 and European Spring are here to say: no more!
We think it’s time for a citizen takeover of the EU institutions, and we’re staging an event at the very core of the Brussels machine on March 25 to show you how it could be done.
A Citizen Takeover of the EU Institutions will bring together artists, activists, academics and politicians from across the planet to Brussels’ BOZAR theatre to present the first-ever transnational list for the European elections and the progressive solutions that people are crying out for. A New Deal for Democracy to bring democracy back to Europe! A Green New Deal that ensures Europe’s green transition and much more, including the women and men, nominated in an ambitious experiment in grassroots democracy, who will take the New Deal for Europe programme to the ballot box in May.
The Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) is working to provide awareness, launch campaigns and produce policies to bring about reforms for the EU. The movement urges those who believe in Europe to rethink the current structures of the EU and re-balance power between the local, national, and European level. DiEM25 is convinced that only a Europe of solidarity can guarantee peace, prosperity and humanism in our continent.
European Spring is Europe’s first transnational list. This movement is united behind a shared vision of Europe as a realm of democracy, sustainability, prosperity, and solidarity. European Spring provides an alternative to the choice that Europeans face – between apathy and anger, between technocracy and autocracy, between those who defend the European Union as it exists today and those who wish to destroy it forever.
[DiEM25 is 100% financed by donations from its members. We don’t receive money from public authorities or oligarchs with vested interests. The money obtained from ticket sales will go towards covering the cost of the event. Thank you for your support!]
