  • [01] SYRIZA leader: We will not capitulate to the Memorandum

  • [01] SYRIZA leader: We will not capitulate to the Memorandum

    AMNA--Main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras stressed that "we will not capitulate to the Memorandums", during a press conference on Wednesday.

    "We will not say 'yes' to the blackmail and threats, we will not capitulate to the Memorandums," Tsipras said.

    Tsipras severely criticized the Greek government on its handling over the latest developments in Cyprus, adding that in Cyprus there had been only the people's determination not to accept the development (haircut of bank deposits), but there had been no determined government or the appropriate allies.

    He blasted the partners in Greece's three-party coalition government of not knowing, or not wanting the people to remember, the role played by some important 'no's in history. "It is now clear that the much-advertised programme for stabilisation and growth was just a 'bubble', and the only thing that exists is the lenders' raid on this devastated country to loot as much as they can," he said.amna

    Tsipras further said that his party is working on scenarios on which it will base its negotiations tactic, and "considers it a given fact that there will be coercion, that the partners will not accept the overwhelming defeat of their strategy", adding that SYRIZA has a plan for collaboration with the countries of the European south.
