• Η Ελλάδα αποφασίζει (2015)

  • The win of SYRIZA is in the centre of interest of social movements, trade unions and progressive political forces in Europe. SYRIZA has announced to cancel the Memorandum and replace it through a program for a Productive Reconstruction as early as it will be in power.  This opens not only for Greece itself, but for the whole of Europe a new perspective.

  • Επιλεγμένα κείμενα. Το δεύτερο Συνέδριο του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, που πραγματοποιήθηκε στην Αθήνα από τις 13 ως τις 16 Σεπτεμβρίου, ήταν το πρώτο που διοργανώθηκε από τότε που ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ ηγήθηκε της κομματικής συμμαχίας που ανέλαβε τη διακυβέρνηση της χώρας. Τα δυο χρόνια που πέρασαν από τότε αποδείχθηκαν μια ολόκληρη εποχή: η εκλογική νίκη του Ιανουαρίου του 2015, οι διαπραγματεύσεις με την Τρόικα, το ιστορικό Όχι του δημοψηφίσματος, το πραξικόπημα του Ιουλίου και η ακόλουθη διάσπαση του κόμματος, η εκλογική νίκη του Σεπτεμβρίου.

  • A Problem Called Germany

  • Boaventura de Sousa Santos | 29 Jul 15
  • Europe’s biggest problem is Germany, not Greece. Just over two years ago (May, 2013) I published a piece entitled “The German Diktat”, in which I listed the justifications given by Germany at the beginning of the First World War for its atrocities against Belgium, a small country that had refused to go along with Germany’s bellicose plans.

Ultimately, even if the powerful were able to impose their will, what remains is the absolute confirmation on the international level that austerity is a dead end. This process has established a completely new landscape in Europe.”

The institutions of the Troika (International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank, European Commission) are not only trying to destroy change in Greece, they are trying to undermine us all. Now is the time to raise our voices against this blackmail by the European elites.

  • The rising crescendo of bickering and acrimony within Europe might seem to outsiders to be the inevitable result of the bitter endgame playing out between Greece and its creditors. In fact, European leaders are finally beginning to reveal the true nature of the ongoing debt dispute, and the answer is not pleasant: it is about power and democracy much more than money and economics.

  • As the bridge agreement with the Eurogroup approaches its expiration date, the conflict between the European “institutions” and the Greek government is getting tenser. Last week, Jacobin sat down with Elena Papadopoulou to better understand the dynamics between the Greek economy and the European Union (EU), the role of Germany and the United States, and Syriza’s strategy for the ongoing negotiations. In particular, we wanted to grasp not only how the structures of the European Monetary Unification have produced different outcomes for different countries — according to their existing economic and political structures — but also how it has created core-periphery relations inside the EU.
