In Greece, democracy could put an end to the banksters’ austerity experiment

2 posts / 0 new

On Monday – leftist SYRIZA party leader Alexis Tsipiras traveled to France where anti-austerity Socialist Francois Hollande was recently elected – and called on European allies to join together to fight back against austerity.

Speaking at a news conference – Tsipiras – who is arguable the most important politician in Greece today – said, “Greece gave humanity democracy and today the Greek people will bring democracy back to Europe...The war we are fighting in Europe is not between people or nations, it is between the forces of work and the invisible forces of finance and banks."

Greece is headed for another round of elections in June – and Tsipiras’s SYRIZA Party is expected to win big at the polls – meaning austerity might be breathing its last gasps in Greece.

Let's just hope that no more hungry or unmedicated Greeks breathe their last gasps before the June elections!
