Naples Mayor Joins DiEM25

>> Italy’s third-largest municipality becomes the newest “rebel city” to embrace the transnational movement’s agenda to democratise the EU
NAPLES, ITALY, August 3, 2016.– DiEM25 is delighted to welcome Naples’ Mayor Luigi de Magistris to its ranks.
A courageous former prosecutor known for being a sworn enemy of the Mafia, De Magistris was recently re-elected as the City of Naples’ mayor with a crushing majority of more than 66%.
Over the past five years, Naples – Italy’s third-largest municipality – has emerged as one of Europe’s most innovative “rebel cities” in the fight for a truly democratic EU, promoting the direct engagement of its citizens and social movements in the political decision-making process.
Naples’ effective promotion and protection of common goods and social spaces, its open-door policy toward migrants and refugees, as well as its achievement of becoming the only major European city to switch its water services back to public ownership, show that bottom-up change is both possible and necessary. As a DiEM25 partner, the Italian municipality joins the movement’s transnational grassroots effort to bring about real, lasting change at European level.
