Bullet #1166: The NDP and the Election

by Herman Rosenfeld | September 24, 2015

Bullet #1165: Let's Develop a Plan B for Europe!

by Oskar Lafontaine | September 22, 2015

Many in Europe had put great hopes in the election of Alexis Tsipras as Greek Prime Minister. When, after long and exhausting negotiations, the Syriza leader signed the European diktat, the disappointment was great. It would be unjust and presumptuous to want to give moral lessons to Alexis Tsipras and Syriza.
