The Progressive International has been launched. Read the Open Call. See the video. Join us!

A global war is being waged against workers, against our environment, against democracy, against decency. A network of right-wing factions is spreading across borders working to erode human rights, silence dissent, and promote intolerance. To defeat this new Nationalist International, we cannot simply go back to the failed status quo. Unfettered globalization promised peace and prosperity. But it delivered financial […]

TIME magazine’s report on DiEM25’s German party campaign for the European Parliament, and my candidacy in Germany

On Sunday morning, the former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis picked up a microphone in Berlin, the German capital where, three years ago, high-stakes negotiations with E.U. leaders culminated in his resignation.

My candidacy in Germany for the European Parliament – Press Conference speech

Germany is experiencing a paradoxical crisis. Germany is, on paper, flooded by… money. The federal government is in surplus. A tsunami of foreign money is flooding German banks. Families are saving. And even corporations hoard huge amounts of savings. So, why is the political centre not holding? Why are the major parties bleeding? Why is […]

ΟΜΙΛΙΑ ΑΠΟΔΟΧΗΣ ΥΠΟΦΗΦΙΟΤΗΤΑΣ ΜΕ ΤΟ ΑΔΕΛΦΟ ΚΟΜΜΑ ΤΟΥ ΜέΡΑ25 ΣΤΗΝ ΓΕΡΜΑΝΙΑ

Η Γερμανία βιώνει μια παράδοξη κρίση. Στα χαρτιά, η Γερμανία πλημμυρίζει από χρήμα. Η Ομοσπονδιακή Κυβέρνηση έχει καθαρό πλεόνασμα. Ένα τσουνάμι ξένου χρήματος πλημμυρίζει τις γερμανικές τράπεζες. Τα νοικοκυριά αποταμιεύουν. Ακόμα και οι επιχειρήσεις συσσωρεύουν αποταμιεύσεις. Τότε, γιατί καταρρέει το πολιτικό κέντρο; Γιατί η χώρα μαστίζεται από συναίσθημα δυσαρέσκειας; Γιατί θεριεύει η ξενοφοβία; Γιατί θριαμβεύει […]

Το ΜέΡΑ25 μπροστά σε ευρωεκλογές και εθνικές εκλογές – ΕφΣυν 24 ΝΟΕ 2018

Οι ευρωεκλογές αντιμετωπίζονται από όλα τα κόμματα ως πρόβα τζενεράλε για τις εθνικές εκλογές, κάτι σαν επίσημη δημοσκόπηση. Ενίοτε, μια αδύναμη κυβέρνηση επισπεύδει τις εθνικές εκλογές ώστε να συμπέσουν με τις ευρωεκλογές (π.χ. το 1989) ώστε να δώσει την ευκαιρία σε δυσαρεστημένους ψηφοφόρους να τη «μαυρίσουν» στην ευρω-κάλπη αλλά να την υπερψηφίσουν στην εθνική κάλπη.

“The EU declared war and Theresa May played along” – Interview in The NewStatesman

In 2016, shortly before the EU referendum, Yanis Varoufakis warned that the UK was destined for a “Hotel California Brexit”: it could check out but it could never leave.

DiEM25 will contest the European Parliament elections in Italy – Press Conference announcement, Rome, 26th OCT 2018

    Ladies and Gentlemen, we are here because Italy is being torn by two destructive forces: Brussels and Salvini. By the failed establishment of Renzi-Merkel-Juncker-Moscovici and by the reckless, racist anti-European Salvini project. Tragically, Brussels and Salvini are working very well together against the interests of Italians in particular and of Europeans in general. […]
