#This is a Coup – solidarity with Greek workers against austerity

Solidarity with Greek workers

Assemble Wednesday 15 July 6pm Dortmund Square, Leeds

The Troika has succeeded in making the SYRIZA-government submit to their demands to implement more devastating austerity measures, by means of financial terrorism and threatening to push the country over the brink of economic collapse. Some would call this a capitulation by SYRIZA, some would call this a coup by the Troika. Whatever it is, if the Troika gets their way, it would amount to a historic defeat for everyone fighting against austerity and for democracy.

The only option left for us now is escalating the struggle to the streets and the workplaces. Forced by the Troika the Greek government will on Wednesday be effectively implementing legislation that the people voted NO against over little more than a week ago. All red lines have been crossed. It’s up to us to defend them. So we call on everyone all over the world to take to central squares that day, to loudly say:

OXI means OXI!

OXI to austerity!

OXI to capitulation!

OXI to a third memorandum!

YES to democracy and people’s power

The only dividing line right now, in Greece and in those in solidarity is this:

Do you fight or do you capitulate?

We choose to fight. We hope to see you in the streets.
