By Yanis Varoufakis and David Adler: In times of crisis and catastrophe, children are often forced to grow up quickly. We are now witnessing this premature call to action on a planetary scale. As the adults in government accelerate their consumption of fossil fuels, children are leading the...

DiEM25 members are currently debating our collective stance viz. the European Parliament elections in the UK (that, remarkably, may or may not take place). Since 2016, DiEM25 has been on the right side of history regarding Brexit. Our position was the result of a boisterous internal dialogue and a...

 So, here is an idea: Let us join forces to block Assange’s extradition from any European country to the US, so that he can travel to Stockholm and give his accusers an opportunity to be heard. Let us work together to empower women, while protecting whistle-blowers who reveal nefarious behavior...

11μμ, 5η Ιουλίου 2015. Ο κόσμος στους δρόμους πανηγυρίζει. Το Μαξίμου βυθισμένο σε ύποπτη σιωπή. Στο Υπουργείο Οικονομικών οι οικονομικοί συντάκτες ζητούν ενημέρωση. Ο Υπουργός Οικονομικών, Γιάνης Βαρουφάκης, προσέρχεται στην αίθουσα τύπου και κάνει την εξής δήλωση:

Τις προάλλες ήρθε στην Αθήνα προσκεκλημένος του πρωθυπουργού ο Εβο Μοράλες. Φαντάζεστε τον Κυριάκο Μητσοτάκη, με τον Αδωνι δίπλα του, να προϋπαντούν τον Μοράλες στο Μαξίμου; Μόνο σ’ ένα εναλλακτικό σύμπαν θα βλέπαμε προσκεκλημένο κυβέρνησης της Νέας Δημοκρατίας τον πρόεδρο της Βολιβίας, ένα από τα...

Alphaville’s Jemima Kelly and Izabella Kaminska sat down with Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece and current organiser of a trans-European group, DiEM25, of what he calls “radical Europeanists” — in favour of union, without deflation or austerity. Mr Varoufakis answers...

Sharing a taxi with the FT to give my view on how Prime Minister Theresa May undermined herself – and on the steps that must be taken next.

“Britain needs a People’s Debate on its business model and its Constitution independently of how Brexit pans out… The most sensible way would be for the UK to exit the EU but stay in both a Custom’s Union and the Single Market for an indefinite period (though not forever). After the People’s Debate...

Brexit is, undeniably, important. The Prime Minister’s faulty negotiations have now turned what the majority of the British people considered an opportunity into a national crisis. However, now is perhaps the moment to reflect that, in an era of trade wars, geopolitical realignment and...

The official story is one of creating a national champion, a German bank large enough to compete with American investment banks. The truth is far less heroic and a lot more sordid than that. Here is why Demokratie in Europa is campaigning against this merger. Both banks are zombies....

The memory of past greatness can be debilitating for a people who feel they have failed to rise to a historic occasion.  We Greeks have been burdened by this sensation at various moments in our postwar history: in 1967, when we failed to prevent a military coup; or more recently in 2015,...

Η συλλογική μνήμη ενός ηρωικού παρελθόντος μετατρέπεται εύκολα σε μεμψιμοιρία από έναν λαό που νιώθει ότι, αντίθετα με τους προγόνους του, απέτυχε να σταθεί στο ύψος των περιστάσεων. Οταν ο απόηχος του ένδοξου παρελθόντος συνδυάζεται με τη μιζέρια της σημερινής κατάπτωσης, το αποτέλεσμα είναι ένα...

In the last week of May European citizens will have their last chance to vote in a European Parliament election that makes a difference. It will be a paneuropean election where we can, perhaps for the last time, oppose both faces of authoritarianism across Europe: (A) The inane authoritarianism of...

When the Great Depression followed the 1929 stock-market crash, almost everyone acknowledged that capitalism was unstable, unreliable, and prone to stagnation.

In the decades that followed, however, that perception changed. Capitalism’s post-war revival, and especially the post-Cold War...

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...

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...

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 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...

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.
