On 8 February 2016, Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) will go Live from Berlin with an extraordinary episode of their political webshow 'TalkReal', one day ahead of the launch of the new movement DiEM25 by Yanis Varoufakis.
In the last few days, more details have been released about the pan-European political and social movement that Yanis Varoufakis will launch on 9 February 2016 in Berlin. TalkReal will record the new chapter where the Greek former minister of finance will talk about its view of democracy, Europe and its challenges for the new year.
Democracy in Europe Movement aims at building up a grassroots movement, based on the awakening of millions of Europeans during 2015 to the idea that no country can prosper if other parts of Europe are condemned to permanent depression and perpetual crisis; that no country can be free while another European people are denied basic democratic rights; that common problems demand common solutions. DiEM supports the idea that neither the status quo nor a return to nations-states are viable solutions and intends to gain ground once European citizens will have realized their duty to transcend the frightful dilemma between the current Brussels-based democracy-free zone and Europe’s fragmentation.
