DiEM25 Berlin invites you to the presentation of our actions. We will present and discuss topics with you, that we have been working on in different task forces.
19:00 Welcome drinks and build up
19:15 Review: What kind of meetings did we organise and how do we communicate?
19:45 Diversity: How can we invite much more different people to join us?
20:15 New Deal: What is the New Deal and why is it important for Europe?
20:45 German elections: How do we coordinate Germany wide and what are our plans f. e. during the election time?
We will meet at the room next to the “Blauer Salon” (Mehringhof, Gneisenaustr. 2a, 10961 Berlin). To get there, you enter the yard, then turn left, pass by the bar, enter another yard where you take the stairs on the right side, leading up to Blauer Salon.
Afterwards we will go for a little drink in one of the surrounding bars:)
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.
Thank your for the big attendency on our Berlin wide meeting. After a welcoming for new members and an introduction round, discussions about policy papers on transparency, the New Deal and migration as well as our on organisation and communication followed. See you again next time!
