Don’t read a word I have to say about Greece. Go read Paul Mason, Yanis Varoufakis or even Alex Andreou. What I would say is this. Syriza were the latest evolution in something that has been happening globally for a while. Whatever happens to them now, or happens in Greece, their courage means the neo liberal backlash is spreading. It is on our doorstep it is in our streets, and the fact it isnt recognised by the media cultures who were responsible for projecting austerity out at us, really means little. I didn’t want to add half assed analysis of something you would be better reading elsewhere, but I did want to acknowledge Greece and the week since the Oxi referendum for when I read this blog back in future.
