DiEM25 Belgium has been around for more than a year!
Many of the veteran members know each other well and have applied their talents through our group. They are real warriors: some with words; as philosophers, psychologists, scientists, poets, journalists, writers, social media wizards, and policy officers on the European New Deal, immigration and refugees, or transparency policy papers.
Others took to the streets, had their voice heard, got involved in the fights against TTIP and CETA, the women’s movement, the labour movement, or the civic movement which aims to give us back control of our own cities and communities.
Some members moved on, or are keeping a low profile. There are those who are exhausted from everyday life, or those who have drifted away from DiEM25 because of a lack of activity that relates to them.
Many of us bump into each other again digitally on Slack, Facebook and Twitter, or physically at a café, in the street, or at protests, proving that DiEM25 does indeed bring together like-minded people, even if they do not always stay together.
And of course, we have our dozens of newcomers! Many of them immediately felt at home, others need more time and are probably asking themselves how they can be an active part of the movement.
A good advice to them is: just join us and give yourself and all of us the time to get to know each other. Become familiar with the message and the goals of DiEM25 and then the activities, either those of fellow members or your own, will follow.
In order to facilitate the regrouping of our members, and to organise and coordinate the promotion of DiEM25’s message and activity in Belgium, we have created a Provisional National Committee (PNC). The members of this committee, and the tasks allocated to them, can be found below.
Later this year, we’ll hold an election to install the full National Committee (NC)
As Europe is shattering around us, we need to assess it, compassionately but critically, and join forces to demand the changes it needs to survive!
