  • [01] Tsipras addresses SYN committee

    In his address, Tsipras said that "the world economic crisis, the bankruptcy of capitalism is not an aspect of the expectation of certain leftist and Marxist economists, but constitutes a reality, regardless of the interpretation one gives and it is admitted by all that the model of the 'divine' model of the market is going bankrupt and the hegemony of neo-liberalism is being disputed."

    The Synapismos leader referred to the government‚s policy and criticized Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis because "Mr. Karamanlis, directing himself to the European bankers, assured that the reforms, that is, the handing over of the infrastructures and of public wealth to private interests, will continue. And that the government‚s objective are labour relations and the safeguarding of the unbridled profiteering of banks and of major enterprises."

    Tsipras charged that the prime minister "is pretending he is not hearing."

    He also accused Karamanlis for the high cost of living in Greece.
