Podemos was born out of a need for political change and to build democracy through the participation of citizens and popular agreement. Podemos is a citizen’s initiative that proposes simple but deep changes: restoring democracy and putting politics at the service of people and Human Rights. We want to decide the economic model in which to work and live.
Podemos is a tool for participation: primaries open to all citizens and a participatory programme with the input of thousands of people in an open and transparent way. Podemos is also independent of financing from banks and interest groups, and a sectoral and territorial organization open to all citizens.
