  • [01] Alavanos addresses SYRIZA meeting

  • [01] Alavanos addresses SYRIZA meeting

    Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) leader Alekos Alavanos addressed a nationwide party conference at an indoor stadium on Friday night, stressing that "we are in a phase of a rapid and great upsurge of the Radical Left Coalition regarding the confidence of citizens and this is positive."

    However, Alavanos warned of the risk "of us becoming victims of our success," adding that "society is posing challenges and dilemmas for us that we had not expected or that we had expected much later."

    He further said that SYRIZA can now speak of the aim of a radical government focusing on the Left, and stressed that the citizens "have deeply appreciated our opposition stance, although we can improve it even further. Our substantive opposition to the policy of the Right. Our unifying mood. Our party dimension. Our appeal to the young generation. Our effectiveness."

    Describing the strategic targets of SYRIZA, Alavanos said that "we can speak of an alternative radical programme that will provide answers for the immediate problems of the people - high pices, poverty, unemployment, the redistribution of wealth, education and a social state - and that will be open on the one hand for the course towards a socialism with democracy and freedom and on the other for cooperation with the European and international forces of social transformation."

    Referring, lastly, to a policy of alliances, Alavanos stressed the need for the unity of the Left and noted that "at the same time, general cooperation at leadership level with the PASOK party is impossible. Policy positions on the public University, the constitutional treaty of the European Union, uninsured labour, privatisations and the stance towards the United States place us on different sides."
