Democracy in Europe: DiEM25 in Rome with Yanis Varoufakis

Video from the Acquario Romano in Rome, 23 March 2016, for "Democracy in Europe - Launch of Transparency in Europe, now!" by DiEM25 and official launch of DiEM25 in Italy. 

With Yanis Varoufakis, Lorenzo Marsili, Marisa Matias, Julian Assange, Igiaba Scego, Valentina Orazzini, Marica Di Pierri, Srecko Horvat, Luciana Castellina, Jorge Moruno.

As Europeans we are too often told that we must choose between reverting to the nation state or maintaining the crisis status quo. We reject this dichotomy because we know that alternative paths exist. We believe that democracy in Europe will be created from the bottom-up, by throwing open the doors to the population of the continent to reason, dialogue and acting together on their common good.
