DiEM25 (Democracy in Europe Movement 2025) is a pan-European movement founded in 2016 seeking progressive reform and greater democracy within the European Union. It was launched by Yanis Varoufakis and Srećko Horvat.
From their website:
DiEM25 is a pan-European, cross-border movement of democrats. We believe that the European Union is disintegrating. Europeans are losing their faith in the possibility of European solutions to European problems. At the same time as faith in the EU is waning, we see a rise of misanthropy, xenophobia and toxic nationalism.
If this development is not stopped, we fear a return to the 1930s. That is why we have come together despite our diverse political traditions - Green, radical left, liberal - in order to repair the EU. The EU needs to become a realm of shared prosperity, peace and solidarity for all Europeans. We must act quickly, before the EU disintegrates.
It is organised in groups at local and national levels throughout Europe, referred to as DSCs (DiEM25 Spontaneous Collectives). Groups are present in Ireland, in Dublin and Belfast.
It is associated with the Progressive International, which was launched to facilitate co-operation with similar movements outside Europe.
