DiEM25 is a pan-European, cross-border movement of democrats.
We believe that the European Union is disintegrating. Europeans are losing their faith in the possibility of European solutions to European problems. At the same time as faith in the EU is waning, we see a rise of misanthropy, xenophobia and toxic nationalism.
If this development is not stopped, we fear a return to the 1930s. That is why we have come together despite our diverse political traditions - Green, radical left, liberal - in order to repair the EU. The EU needs to become a realm of shared prosperity, peace and solidarity for all Europeans. We must act quickly, before the EU disintegrates.
Europe is currently suffering from five crises: debt, banks, poverty,
low investment and migration. DiEM25 is the infrastructure
which European democrats of all political persuasions will use
in order to develop common answers to these crises.
We also demand more fundamental change: EU institutions,
which were initially designed to serve the industry, need
to become fully transparent and accountable to European citizens.
Our long-term vision is for Europeans
to write a democratic constitution for the EU.
