Let’s open TheGreekFiles! | DiEM25 | Yanis Varoufakis

Today we’re launching #TheGreekFiles, a targeted campaign on EU transparency, one of the key values of our movement.

Here’s Yanis explaining the campaign in three minutes. Or read on below.

Deep in a vault in the headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) lie #TheGreekFiles, a legal opinion about the ECB’s role in snuffing out the Athens Spring in 2015.

If released, these documents could send shockwaves across Europe. And as a European taxpayer, you paid for them. But the ECB’s boss, ex-Goldman Sachs head Mario Draghi, says you can’t see them!

So former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and MEP Fabio de Masi, together with a broad alliance of politicians and academics, have announced they will file a mass freedom of information request to the ECB to uncover #TheGreekFiles once and for all.

If Mario says no, they’ll take the campaign to the next level, and consider all options – including legal action – to make this vital information public.

How can you help?

  1. Sign and share our Change.org petition
  2. Visit #TheGreekFiles campaign page to learn more about this action, including why its success is vital for our Union’s future
  3. Share this campaign with your contacts and through social media using #TheGreekFiles hashtag
  4. Contribute to DiEM25, so that we can continue this fight for as long as it takes.

We must all throw light on the lawfulness and propriety of ECB decision-making – starting with this case – to give European democracy a chance, as well as to make the ECB less vulnerable to power politics.

Will you, Vítor, join this campaign and add your name to our struggle?

YES, I want to help unlock #TheGreekFiles!

Carpe DiEM25!
