MERA25: DiEM25’s new German (!) Party is now a reality

, 27/12/2021

You may have heard of MeRA25, the first political party that DiEM25 created in Greece – and which entered Greek Parliament in July 2019. Well, true to our ambitious transnational agenda, DiEM25 took matters further: We recently established MERA25 as a… German political party that is now legally and organisationally ready and willing to contest […]

On Merkel’s Legacy, European Politics & the “Sordid Arms Race” on the Seas – On Democracy Now, with Amy Goodman

, 11/10/2021

The centre-left Social Democratic Party in Germany has narrowly claimed victory in an election that marks an end to the 16-year era of Angela Merkel’s conservative chancellorship. We look at what this means for Europe and the world with Yanis Varoufakis, a member of the Greek Parliament and the former finance minister of Greece. The […]

Merkel’s tenure condemned Germany to wealth-fuelled decline & the EU to debt-fuelled stagnation – JACOBIN

, 28/09/2021

Angela Merkel’s tenure will be remembered as Germany’s, and Europe’s, cruelest paradox. On the one hand, she dominated the continent’s politics like no other peacetime leader — and is leaving the German chancellery considerably more powerful than she had found it. But the way she built up this power condemned Germany to secular decline and […]

My farewell to Mikis Theodorakis – Der Freitag

, 09/09/2021

I must have been 6 or 7 years-old when I got whiff of the significance of Theodorakis’ music. It was around 1968 when my parents warned me not to tell anyone at school or in the neighbourhood that they owned records of his – and certainly not to admit that we listened to them. “Even […]

, 30/07/2020

Πρόκειται για παρέμβαση του DiEM25 (αναπόσπαστο μέρος του οποίου είναι το ΜέΡΑ25) που κάνει όλους εμάς που, από τον Φλεβάρη του 2016, παλεύουμε να χτίσουμε αυτό το μοναδικό, ενιαίο, διεθνικό κίνημα να νιώθουμε βαθιά περήφανοι. Φέρνοντας μαζί, ως μέλη του ίδιου κινήματος, μέλη και οργανώσεις μας από την Γερμανία, την Ελλάδα ΚΑΙ την Τουρκία, η […]

Ούτε Πόλεμος Ούτε Συνεκμετάλλευση – Ειρήνη, Συνεργασία & Πράσινη Κοινή Ευημερία: Οι θέσεις του ΜέΡΑ25 & του DiEM25 για την Ειρήνη και την Κοινή Πράσινη Ευημερία στην Αν. Μεσόγειο

, 30/07/2020

Πρόσφατα γιορτάσαμε την 46η Επέτειο από την Αποκατάσταση της Δημοκρατίας. Το ΜέΡΑ25 τόνισε, με την ευκαιρία της επετείου, ότι οι Έλληνες δημοκράτες έχουμε υποχρέωση να μην ξεχνάμε πως επέστρεψε η Δημοκρατία στην Ελλάδα: Ως απόρροια της Κυπριακής τραγωδίας που έφεραν εθνικιστικές επιλογές ενός ξενοκίνητου ελληνικού καθεστώτος που άνοιξε διάπλατα την πόρτα στην Κατοχή της Βόρειας […]

The Eurozone’s grappling with crisis, class war & the North-South divide – Berliner Verlag interview

, 16/07/2020

What did you think when the Euro-group elected its new leader last week? At least this was not the outcome Frau Merkel had wished? My first thought was that it spelled the end of any possibility of harmonizing corporate tax rates across the Eurozone, an issue that I am on Mrs Merkel’s side. The second […]

“The European Union Is Determined to Continue Making the Same Errors It Made After 2008” – JACOBIN interview

, 12/04/2020

The lack of EU help for the states hardest hit by COVID-19 is the latest sign of the hollowness of “European solidarity.” As Yanis Varoufakis tells Jacobin, the European Union’s institutions are hardwired to ignore the needs of the social majority — preferring to allow mass suffering than to change their own rules. Yanis Varoufakis is used […]

Dann wäre morgen die Revolution – KONTEXT Wochenzeitung

, 09/02/2020

Unter Meteorologen braucht es keine Meinungsvielfalt – so lange die etablierten Methoden fundierte Prognosen liefern. In den Wirtschaftswissenschaften, wo die Vorhersagen “allenfalls per Unfall” richtig lägen, sei das anders, meint der Ökonom und DiEM25-Initiator Yanis Varoufakis. Wenn die herrschende Lehrmeinung die Realität nicht mehr treffend beschreiben kann, brauche es alternative Blickwinkel.  Der Einladung der studentischen Inititiative “Rethinking […]

, 27/05/2019

“We showed Europeans how a common agenda can be put together collaboratively by many political actors coalescing from all over Europe. How a common list of candidates, in support of this common agenda, can emerge. How we can campaign across Europe, together, under the banner of this agenda. In the months and weeks leading to […]

Tageszeitung-TAZ: DiEM25 as the best hope for overcoming Europe’s nationalist resurgence

, 12/05/2019

Europe is in deep political crisis, and without renewal, the Union could soon fall apart. This is shown by Brexit, the strengthening of Euroscepticism in Italy, in Germany and many other countries. Many now rely on the French president as a renewal and saviour. But Emmanuel Macron is not the right person to stop the slow dying of the European […]

Why the Deutsche Bank merger with Commerzbank must be stopped – HANDELSBLATT (English & German)

, 27/03/2019

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. Commerzbank has gone through eight years […]

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 the business-as-usual establishment, and (B) The authoritarianism […]

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.
