Το ΜέΡΑ25 δεν χρησιμοποιεί τον πολιτισμό ως προπαγανδιστικό εργαλείο αλλά, αντίθετα, βλέπει τον ακομμάτιστο πολιτισμό ως πηγή έμπνευσης προοδευτικών πολιτικών. Σε αυτή την εκδήλωση που οργάνωσε το DiEM25 και ο πολιτιστικός του βραχίονας, το DiEM Voice, καλλιτέχνες όπως ο Brian Eno, o Bobby...

In der Nachspielzeit, die “Tagesthemen” warten schon, darf Christian Lindner noch einmal seinen Tweet zu den “Profis” erläutern, denen die Sache mit dem Klimawandel überlassen werden müsste. Wer schlechte Zähne habe, der gehe ja auch zum Zahnarzt. [VIDEO LINK]

Schon freut sich Lindner...

The 2008 global financial crisis—the modern 1929 crash—set off a vicious chain reaction across Europe. By 2010 it had irreparably damaged the foundations of the eurozone, causing the establishment to bend its own rules and commit crimes against logic in order to bail out its banker friends...

Σήμερα το πρωί το Δικαστήριο της ΕΕ εξέδωσε την απόφασή του: Οι πολίτες δεν δικαούνται να μάθουν αν η ΕΚΤ έπραξε νόμιμα κλείνοντας τις ελληνικές τράπεζες τον Ιούνιο του 2015. Γιατί; Επειδή, σύμφωνα με τους τρεις δικαστές, μια τέτοια κοινοποίηση “θα περιόριζε την δυνατότητα της ΕΚΤ να διατηρεί ικανό...

The European Union Court today delivered its verdict: European citizens cannot be allowed to find out whether the ECB acted legally in closing down Greece’s banks in June 2015. Why? In the wording of the three judges, because such disclosure would affect the ECB’s “space to think in 2015 and also...

The European Union is fragmenting at a time when Europeans need it the most. Emmanuel Macron is right to point this out. But he is wrong to push another top-down agenda that lacks credibility, fails to speak to European’s concerns, and entrenches the democratic deficit at the heart of the...

«Αυτό που προτείνεται στον ελληνικό λαό, αντί για ένα βιώσιμο σχέδιο για την επόμενη δεκαετία, είναι το να συναινέσει στην έξοδό του στις αγορές όσο το κράτος του είναι πτωχευμένο, και με προοπτική να βουλιάζει όλο και πιο πολύ στον βούρκο της μακροπρόθεσμης πτώχευσης· αλλά, βέβαια, παραμένοντας...

Thomas Piketty recently criticised DiEM25’s New Deal for Europe for relying on new debt, rather than new taxes, to fund green investment. James K. Galbraith and Stuart Holland (my long time collaborators on the New Deal for Europe and the earlier Modest Proposal on which it was founded) have now...

The lean years are here again, to the apparent satisfaction of Germany’s Finance Minister, a Social Democrat.  The rate of growth of the budgetary surplus was declining, therefore restraining expenditure was the prudent attitude, the public must rest assured that over the next few years 25 billion...

The fact that Italy’s public debt has a lower credit rating than private debt is a reflection not of public debt’s intrinsic inferiority but of a political choice made by European leaders. And, by bolstering an authoritarian politician, that choice is now blowing back on them....

Υπάρχουν δυο τρόποι να κάνει κανείς πολιτική. Ο παλαιοκομματικός τρόπος θέλει «στελέχη» να μαζεύονται σ’ ένα δωμάτιο και να αποφασίζουν την από κοινού κάθοδό τους στις εκλογές προσθέτοντας τα κουκιά τους. Κατόπιν, αφού τα έχουν βρει στη μοιρασιά θέσεων και πόστων, ξύνουν το κεφάλι τους και...

Imagine that we knew the day of our death. Our lives would change drastically. Though we know we shall surely die, not knowing precisely when the mortal coil will be shuffled off makes all the difference, allowing us to live life productively on a day-by-day basis. For exactly the same reason,...

Η κακεντρέχεια δεν είναι ποτέ προοδευτική. Στο ΜέΡΑ25 ξυπνάμε κάθε πρωί με την ελπίδα να κάνει κάτι καλό η κυβέρνηση, να το χαιρετίσουμε και, έτσι, να αποδράσουμε –έστω και για λίγο– από τη θλίψη της συνεχούς καταγραφής αρνητικών εξελίξεων, αδιέξοδων πολιτικών, αήθους προπαγάνδας.

The president of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim, just stepped down  in search of greener pastures. His readiness to resign  prompted David Adler (DiEM25’s Policy Coordinator) to I to write this op-ed in The Guardian arguing for a New Bretton Woods. In this CNN interview David explains what we mean.

If xenophobia is rearing its ugly head across Europe, it is because of the awful design of our Single Currency, our Single Market & EU governance. It is time to fix them. The European Spring program explains how we propose to do this.

Σήμερα έχουμε άλλη μια απόδειξη ότι το κίνημά μας, το DiEM25 πανευρωπαϊκά και το ΜέΡΑ25 στην πατρίδα μας, φέρνει κάτι καινούργιο, πρωτόγνωρο και ωραίο στην πολιτική σκηνή.  Το κίνημά μας δεν παίρνει χρήματα από τις Βρυξέλλες, από τραπεζίτες, μεγιστάνες, ολιγάρχες και λοιπά συμφέροντα. Μας...

The president of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim, will step down on 1 February – three and a half years before the end of his term – in search of greener pastures.

Britain’s prime minister has been remarkable in resolutely following a ruinous path that she keeps insisting remains the least perilous road to Brexit. Theresa May’s first crime against logic was to trigger Article 50 without a plan of what to do on 29 March 2019 if no deal had been struck with...

Καπιταλισμός χωρίς δυσβάστακτο χρέος δεν γίνεται. Για την ακρίβεια, για να επιβιώνει ο καπιταλισμός αναγκάζεται να γεννά όλο και μεγαλύτερα χρέη που είναι αδύνατον να αποπληρωθούν. Κι όταν ο κόμπος φτάσει στο χτένι, απλώς κουρεύονται αλλά μόνο αφού έχουν συνθλιβεί οι μη έχοντες και έχουν ενισχυθεί...

Britain is teetering on a knife’s edge: about to crash out of, or back into, the European Union. Either outcome would represent a defeat for democracy in the UK and in the EU. Crashing out would inflict substantial economic hardship on the weakest in Britain. It would boost jingoism and...

Paradoxically, while the current Brexit impasse is pregnant with risk, the British should welcome it. Their discontent with the choices before them is an opportunity, not a curse, and more democracy is the antidote, not the disease.

Το 2019 δεν θα είναι μόνο εκλογική χρονιά. Θα αποδειχθεί, επί πλέον, η χρονιά που η ύφεση επέστρεψε στη διεθνή οικονομία.
