I want to defend a social Europe, in the interest of European citizens, not of finance and multinationals. I want to oppose ineffective austerity policies that further impoverish the most vulnerable, and instead have good jobs that provide decent pay to everyone.

I have almost never done politics, until I joined Diem25 Belgium about a year and a half ago. After meeting the Belgian team , reduced but very dynamic, I decided to join them. At the end of 2017, I was elected to the Belgian National Collective. Being worried about the growing social injustices the rise of the far-right and populism across Europe, I immediately became excited about its comprehensive and hopeful programme.
