Tageszeitung-TAZ: DiEM25 as the best hope for overcoming Europe’s nationalist resurgence

Summary:
Europe is in deep political crisis, and without renewal, the Union could soon fall apart. This is shown by Brexit, the strengthening of Euroscepticism in Italy, in Germany and many other countries. Many now rely on the French president as a renewal and saviour. But Emmanuel Macron is not the right person to stop the slow dying of the European Union. He represents that neo-liberal course that destroys the Union from the inside, making the rich wealthier and the poor poorer. Whether Europe survives as a political alliance is not only theoretically important. It is a question of wealth or poverty for us all, and yes, even if it sounds pathetic: it is a question of war and peace. A glimmer of hope is now coming
