Why we must stand with Greece. 

«In fighting against the most brutal austerity in Europe, the Greek people are engaged in a epic battle for the future of European democracy. All anti-poverty campaigners must stand with them. (...) 

Europe is at a crossroads. Do we continue to head down an anti-democratic road where ever more of our society is sold off, inequality continues to spiral, poverty and unemployment are seen as personal failings and a ‘good life’ can only be found in the market? Or do we remember the importance of collective action and support, equality and human rights, and strive for new forms of democracy which can unleash our potential and allow us to take on the monumental task of saving our planet? Greece is hope. It presents a once in a generation opportunity. We cannot ignore it.»
