Meet the new boss: Greek police baton & tear gas migrant demonstration

Yesterday police in Greece batoned and tear gassed protesters outside one of the migrant detention camps now being run by Syriza. Militant protests both inside and outside the camp resumed last weekend after the suicide of a Pakistani migrant, Nadim Mohammed who had been held for 18 months, released and then returned to the Amygdaleza camp. The news of the suicide broke on February 14th along with the news that another migrant had killed themselves in Thessaloniki police station.

As ECB tells Greeks they voted wrong - will Syriza pull the temple down?

Do we live in an economy or in a society? Last night Europe's central bankers sent the clear message they expect us to be the well behaved slaves of an economy rather than equals in a society. Less then two weeks after the Greeks had elected an anti-austerity government the ECB in effect told them they intended to block the promises of change that government was elected on.

Notes on the racist 'Independent Greeks' (ANEL) Syriza has gone into coalition with

Having written a long piece on the election of Syriza yesterday I saw this morning that they have gone into coalition with what has been described as an anti-migrant right (or even far right) party called the Independent Greeks ( or ANEL).  ANEL have a strong anti-ECB stance but on the level of seeing Greeks as a victim of an 'International Conspiracy'.  Tie that into their leader claiming falsely that Jews pay no Taxes and it should sound warning bells.  They do have 15 elected members so it gives the coalition a strong majority and Syriza have worked with them in the past.  Presumably this and their strong anti ECB stance is why Syriza has decided that their anti-migration policies are not important.

After the election of Syriza in Greece - Power is not in Parliament

Today, across Europe, the left is excited by the likelihood of Syriza topping the polls in the Greek election. Some on the left have gone so far as to suggest the election itself will mark the end of austerity policies, in the terminology of the Anglo left, an end to the idea that There Is No Alternative (TINA).  Another indication that something of significance is happening is that ahead of the election a new wave of capital flight has started from Greece with an estimated 8 billion transferred out of the country over the last few weeks.
