  • [01] Tsipras with Spanish left leaders

    Visiting Madrid on Thursday, Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) Parliamentary group leader Alexis Tsipras said that the forces of the left in southern Europe were at the start of a difficult but very important effort to "prevent the forces of capital from eroding the social gains that had been won in past decades through struggles and sacrifices".

    Communist Party of Spain SG Jose Luis Centella, in a statement after his meeting with Tsipras, said he was certain that the two parties would fight together so that the working class would not have to pay for the crisis.

    The head of Spain's United Left political coalition, Cayo Lara, also appeared sanguine that the parties of the left will continue to work together to resist the crisis.
