SYRIZA's Victory and the Future of the Left
A Jacobin-sponsored Panel

Socialism 2015

July 02, 2015

In the weeks leading to Socialism 2015, Negotiations between European officials and the Greek government led by the radical left party SYRIZA were deadlocked as the European Union (EU) continued to pressure Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to capitulate on the anti-austerity program SYRIZA proposed in its election campaign that brought it to power on January 25. Meanwhile, SYRIZA’S left wing, grouped together in the Left Platform, has been calling for the government to stop making debt repayments and devote all available resources to improving the conditions for Greece's workers and the poor. Antonis Davanellos, a Central Committee member of SYRIZA and well-known leader of the Left Platform, will discuss the Greek crisis and the fight to sustain the anti-austerity commitments of SYRIZA.
