A political party calling for the dismantlement of the euro zone has been officially launched in Berlin. It's founding congress made clear it hopes to capitalize on disillusioned voters in the run up to the September elections in Germany.
Fifteen-hundred delegated conglomerated in West Berlin in the Hotel Intercontinental. All those present believed that the single European currency is ultimately doomed and should be ended as soon as possible.
Co-founder of the new party Konrad Adam stated that his party and its members "take pride in being called populists. There is nothing like a free speech police here in Germany saying there is no alternative to the euro. We are the alternative now, Alternative for Germany."
During the transpiration of their first conglomeration British and American diplomats were received by warm applause whilst an EU commission representative was in turn loudly booed and shunned. (EU Observer, April 15 2013)
Whilst the party may not garner enough support and momentum to get a place in parliament it reportedly has enough potential to grow in popularity in the future as the German people grow tired of the costly bailouts worth billions which they are paying for in order to maintain the euro zone.
