In February 2016, a group of activists, thinkers, and agitators gathered together in Berlin’s Volksbühne theatre and vowed to shake Europe.
Three years on, our movement is rumbling around the globe, with more than 100,000 members and more than 170 Spontaneous Collectives (DSCs) worldwide. DiEM25 local groups are sprouting up in cities from London to New York City to address Europe’s crisis of democracy. DiEM25 chapters are marching in the street for a Green New Deal for Europe. And DiEM25’s Electoral Wings have emerged to take our transformational manifesto to ballot boxes everywhere this May.
Many doubt us. The establishment fears us. But in the course of three years, we have shown that it is possible for the people of Europe to come together in the fight for democracy.
Hope is back!
