DiEM25 docu night: Life in Syria before the war

In line with the Sunday cinema at B-Lage and the festival “Offenes Neukölln” DiEM25 invites you to our seventh DiEM25 docu night. With the movie we want to give an insight into the life in Syria before the war. With that we can get a different view on our lives and the lives of our Syrian friends. Following the movie, we want to discuss: What should politics on European and local level do for a better living together?

DiEM25 docu night with “Europe’s Forbidden Colony”

Dear everybody,

we invite you once more to our docu night. We show the documentary “Europe’s Forbidden Colony” in english.

Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat travels from Idomeni in Greece, where in 2015 refugees fleeing war and poverty entered Europe, to the dockyards of the Greek port of Pireaus, where workers’ unions say they are fighting a new kind of privatisation, and from Romania, where people are fighting to protect their forests from international investment firms, to the City of London.

On his way Horvat talks to Syrian refugee Mustafa al Hamoud, former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis, French protesters at the Nuit Debout, Mayor of Barcelina Ada Colau, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and many more.

Following the movie screening we want to discuss, if Europe indeed has colonies and ask you about your ideas for Europe. We will also ask for a small donation to finance the costs we have.

Carpe DiEM!

DiEM25 Documentary Night with “On the bride’s side”

As part of the Sunday cinema programme at B-Lage in Neukölln we invite you to the third Berlin DiEM25 Documentary Night on February 19th, 2017 to watch with us ‘On the Bride’s Side’. A journey across Europe, for a better Europe.

A Palestinian poet and an Italian journalist meet five Palestinians and Syrians in Milan who entered Europe via the Italian island of Lampedusa after fleeing the war in Syria. They decide to help them complete their journey to Sweden – and hopefully avoid getting themselves arrested as traffickers – by faking a wedding. With a Palestinian friend dressed up as the bride and a dozen or so Italian and Syrian friends as wedding guests, they cross halfway over Europe on a four-day journey of three thousand kilometres.

The film is not a documentary, but get’s you thinking and that is why afterwards we would like to discuss the topic migration with you. On which we are just working on a policy paper. We will also ask for a small donation (~2€) to finance the costs we have.

The movie will be shown in different languages and with english subtitles.

We look forward to seeing you there!

DiEM25 Documentary Night with “This is not a coup”

As part of the Sunday cinema programme at B-Lage in Neukölln we invite you to the second Berlin DiEM25 Documentary Night. DiEM25 stands for Democracy in Europe Movement.

The documentary “This is not a coup” describes ECB’s financial interventions in states like Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Cyprus and Greece. Featuring well known academics, politicians and journalists, it analyses the relation of EU institutions with big corporations and banks. In order to guarantee full independence from private companies and interests, the project is financed through crowdfunding – namely donations from citizens, trade unions and independent organizations and foundations across the globe.

After the documentation we would like to discuss the topic with you. We will also ask for a small donation (~1€) to finance the costs we have.

The movie will be shown in different languages and with english subtitles.

We look forward to seeing you there!

DSC Berlin at the congress of the European Left

380 delegates from 27 member parties and from nine observation parties arrived in Berlin for the 5th Congress of the European Left. The concerns about Europe were connected: austerity politics, growing precariousness, rise of the populous right, higher military budget for geopolitical power games, just to name a few of these concerns. Europe is standing knee deep in crises and that’s not just from the Left‘s viewpoint. The question, however, “what to do?”, brings an end to the unification.

Gregor Gysi, still chairman in the German Bundestag, was elected as the new chairman of the European Left. Without opponents, Gysi can only have a short majority of the delegates behind him, with only 68% of the votes, and the EL made a rather split impression.

Naturally, DiEM25 wasn‘t officially invited to the Congress. Through “Die Linke”, however, the possibility was offered to set up a stand and present the proposal of our Pan-European democratic movement to the interested delegates and representatives.

Despite the not very original red color in this environment, the DiEM stand stood out clearly. During the three-day congress, 8 DSC members alternated regularly at the stand and radiated a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere.
