Solidarity with the Greek People

The Greek referendum: a quick response By Mick Brooks Five months ago the left wing party Syriza was elected on a wave of enthusiasm to form the new Greek government on a clear anti-austerity platform. The Greek people have suffered a decline of a quarter of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) since recession struck in 2009. This is as big a disaster as the USA suffered in the Great Depression of 1929-33. Unemployment stands at 25% and nearly half of all young people are without a job. [continue...]

More Support for Syriza

More Support for Syriza Open letter published in Guardian 27 Jan. A new government has formed in Greece that places people at the heart of its programme of change.
The crippling bail-out package imposed through the EU/IMF Memorandum has created huge increases in unemployment – especially for the young. There is a consequent loss of health insurance and therefore access to health services for nearly 1 in 5 Greeks, as well as severe homelessness and energy disconnections. This has created what the Lancet has reported as a public health tragedy. Wages and pensions have been drastically cut while living costs have soared. There has been an erosion of basic rights such as collective bargaining. As well as damaging society these policies have failed to reboot the Greek economy and the public debt in relation to GDP is now far greater than it was before the programme started in 2010. [continue...]
