Yanis Varoufakis's Message to DiEM25 Members Injured in Paris

Nino, Remy and Violette,

I am writing to thank you.  For what you did and for what you suffered. You have thousands of friends, comrades and admirers, DiEM25 members thinking of you throughout Europe.

The more authoritarian and violent they become, the more they resort to violence to maintain their failed policies, the more we know that they are feeling weak and that we are getting stronger.

Let us know what we, the rest of DiEM25, can do presently to ease your personal pain. Otherwise, we keep going.

For now, we salute you.

In solidarity

Yanis Varoufakis
