  • [01] DIMAR leader: Bill on antiracism a must

    ANA/MPA--Passing an antiracism law to deal with "racist and hate speech, racist violence and acts" is "an obligation for Greece", Democratic Left (DIM.AR) party Fotis Kouvelis told ANA-MPA TV on Tuesday.

    In statements to the agency, Kouvelis said, "An antiracism regulation is a must, and no political tug of war is acceptable on such an issue." He added that democracy may be tolerant but it has rules, "and these rules must be respected by all."

    Commenting on the role of his party as a junior member of the ruling coalition, with New Democracy and PASOK, the DIM.AR leader said that it would have been very easy "to move to the parliamentary seats of the minor opposition, but there would have been no political stability or a prospect of exiting the crisis, which was present and is still here, to a lesser degree. That is a responsible Left."

    He asserted that although unemployment was "a great wound" for Greece that could not be resolved overnight, the course of the economy "will change at end-2013 and Greece will be able to partly return to markets in 2014."

    Kouvelis also called for European political leaders to "resist Germany's choice to maintain the model of austerity and strict fiscal adjustment," as continuing these policies would bring "results that do not help resolve the huge problems faced by countries and their populations."
