Luigi di Maio, leader of the anti-establishment party, is planning meetings with a number of emerging movements across the Continent in order to create a “group of direct democracy” to challenge the current crop of elitist EU parties. He will also call on the so-called ‘Yellow Vest’ movement, which has threatened to sink Emmanuel Macron’s reign as French president, to help spearhead the peoples’ revolution in Brussels, according to Laura Agea, Five Star’s most senior figure in the Belgian capital. She said: “The meeting between the political leader of Five Star Movement Luigi di Maio and the leaders of three other European emerging formations is a fundamental step of a work that comes from far. In the last months we have been talking with anyone, like our attitude has ever been, and we found very important convergence with Kukiz’15 from Poland, Zivi zig from Croatia and the Finnish Liike Nyt.

“We’ll create with them the group of direct democracy. Our goal is to be decisive for the next European Parliament. We believe in the values of citizen participation and involvement. Big groups like EPP and S&D must know that the time in which decisions are taken in secret rooms of Brussels is up.

“This Europe uses two weights and two measures on too many topics. For example, lobbies count more than citizens. We want to overturn this scheme. Also, there’s a lot of waste that’s possible to cut: the pay of the European Commissioners or the shame of having three seats of the European Parliament. Our manifesto will contain the good ideas of all national delegations. We will focus on direct democracy, on the fight against poverty, on the health of citizens and the defence of the excellence of Made in Europe.”

Five Star is hoping to recruit the so-called ‘Yellow Vests’ of France to their cause after the movement proved citizens can force change.

After weeks of protests, some often violent and destructive, Mr Macron reversed a planned fuel tax rise and increased the minimum wage in a bid to quash the angry demonstrators, who have grown frustrated with the increased cost of living for the forgotten rural citizens of France.
