Greece may be headed for a “revolution” – with a crucial election less than two weeks away

3 posts / 0 new

Greek election law prohibits polls from being released two weeks before a vote – and the last poll released before the ban takes effect shows the far-left anti-austerity SYRIZA party with a comfortable of 5-points heading into the June 16th contest.

On Friday, SYRIZA leader – Alex Tsipras – unveiled the party’s agenda should they win control of parliament – which includes: an immediate end to the spending cuts and austerity agenda that Greece agreed to earlier this year in exchange for a bailout, an increase in the minimum wage, a tax hike on the rich, the repeal of a privatization drive, and the nationalization of the Greek banks.

This agenda will likely mean an end to Greece’s membership in the Eurozone – but a new chance at rebuilding an economy ravaged by austerity-addicted technocrats and banksters.

Well if they go back on the terms of their bailout, I hope they at least have the decency to pay the money back.
