With Lives, Livelihoods and the Union on the brink, the COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest test of the European project in the history of the Union — and we are failing. Solidarity was meant to be a foundational principle of the EU. But solidarity is missing at the moment it is most needed. COVID-19...

Η πανδημία είναι το σκληρότερο τεστ στο οποίο έχει υποβληθεί η ΕΕ – και, δυστυχώς, βαθμολογείται πολύ κάτω της βάσης. Η αλληλεγγύη υποτίθεται είναι ιδρυτική αρχή της ΕΕ. Κι όμως, ποτέ η αλληλεγγύη δεν ήταν τόσο απούσα από την Ευρώπη σε μια φάση που είναι τόσο αναγκαία. Ο κορωνοϊός αποκάλυψε μια...

Last night, immediately after our first DiEM25 TV event, my phone rang. It was Julian. From prison. It was not that first time that he honoured me deeply by using the few phone calls prison allows him to make to call me. Like every other such occasion, when I unexpectedly recognise his voice a...

Enormous global corporations and financial institutions are now, some say, more powerful than governments. Rules that once constrained and regulated capitalism have gone. And when their power causes massive destruction, the captains of Big Capital find ways to profit from the destruction. So, is...

The Eurogroup met yesterday, Monday 16th March, to hammer out its coordinated fiscal response to the massive recession already in progress following the lockdown of much of Europe’s society. The task they faced is enormous: If sales, tourism, services etc. fall by 50% for just one month (which is...

On March 14, for the first time, European citizens will be able to take a front seat in the meetings where their future is decided: DiEM25’s #EuroLeaks will take YOU inside the Eurogroup that has no standing in law, but where the most far-reaching decisions about all our lives are made.

The motives and thinking behind Brexit were even less worthy than those behind US President Richard Nixon’s move in 1971 to ditch the Bretton Woods system. But, as with the “Nixon shock,” there is a singular underlying historical factor that explains Brexit. ATHENS – At pivotal historical...

Κάθε επιδημία, βιολογική ή οικονομική, απαιτεί άμεση δράση πριν εξαπλωθεί. Την ώρα που κυβέρνηση και Eurogroup ωλιγορούν, το ΜέΡΑ25 κατέθεσε (10-3-2020) συγκεκριμένη, κοστολογημένη πρόταση άμεσης εφαρμοσιμότητας για την αντιμετώπιση της Νέας Ύφεσης που ερχόταν έτσι κι αλλιώς αλλά η οποία, λόγω...

Nationalism and speculation have seldom had a better opportunity to combine forces as the one riding today on the coattails of Covid-19, known as the coronavirus.

Spring is already in the air across Greece. Even in the bleakest of times, nature’s renaissance renders hope irrepressible. But this one is proving a cruel spring for a people caught up in a decade-old crisis yielding one ritual humiliation after another. Costas runs a small bookshop in my central...

DiEM25 condemns the militarisation of the Greek-Turkish border, the European Union’s violation of every principle of Humanism, the instrumentalisation of refugees both by the Turkish regime and Brussels, the abandonment of Greek islanders to their own devices – the list goes on and on.

Τίποτα δεν τιμωρεί πιο βάναυσα η εξουσία από τη διαρροή των ένοχων μυστικών της. Και κανένας δεν αντιμετωπίζει μακρύτερη ποινή από τον Τζούλιαν Ασάνζ. Ο Τζούλιαν κέρδισε το δικαίωμα να δανειστεί τη φράση ενός άλλου φυλακισμένου, ενός άλλου εχθρού της Αυτοκρατορίας – του Μαχάτμα Γκάντι. Όπως ο...
