News item

Tuesday 25 Apr 2017

As a member of Diem25 advisory panel I’m very pleased to announce launch of Diem24Ireland on 27th and 28th May.

DiEM25 is a pan-European political movement that was started by Yanis Varoufakis, the former minister of finance of Greece, and it aims at democratising the European Union to prevent it from disintegrating (more information about its aims can be found in the manifesto).
