“The Greek elections offer a potential breakthrough, but to carry out their program a government of the Left will need massive understanding and support abroad. Unions should be in the forefront of building that support.”(Excerpt from IUF statement.)
The IUF is maybe the first Global Union Federation (GUF) to both argue the case and call for international union solidarity for SYRIZA and its programme to challenge the horrendous austerity capitalism imposed on the majority of Greek citizens.
SYRIZA have not yet won the election, but they are expected to do so.
The IUF article explains the failed history of previous efforts to defeat externally imposed austerity in other European countries. SYRIZA is different and provides working people around the world as well as the Greek majority, with a real alternative foundation against austerity capitalism.
Of course, the global ruling class, will be planning how to bring SYRIZA down.
The Greek ruling class itself has the bloody hands of repression of the people in its own history to stop socialist and democratic momentums.
We are all in the Greek majority.
