We are publishing the English translation of a leaflet distributed by the The Workers Revolutionary Party (EEK) as an alternative to the political line, each disastrous in its own way, pursued by Syriza and the Communist Party of Greece.
BANKS IN THE PEOPLE’S HANDS – NO TO THE SPECULATIVE BANKERS OF THE TROIKA
Workers-popular control over the banks and flows of capital abroad
No loss for wages and pensions
DIRECT NATIONALIZATION OF THE BANKS UNDER WORKERS’ AND THE POOR PEOPLE’S CONTROL
Class war against the unorthodox war of the Troika EU/ECB/IMF and the domestic troika New Democracy-PASOK-muddy “River-Potami”
At the referendum we vote NO
NO to the thieves of IMF-EU-ECB
NO to the Greek collaborators of the Troika
ND, Potami, PASOK
The game is over:
CANCELATION OF THE DEBT
BANKS AND STRATEGIC ECONOMIC SECTORS IN THE HANDS OF SOCIETY.
PRODUCTION AND POWER IN THE HANDS OF WORKERS!
A Workers’ Government- with Workers’ Power
DOWN WITH THE IMPERIALIST EU!
RED SOCIALIST EUROPE!
By tightening the screw and on the basis of stopping the flow of credit through blackmail and ultimatums, the international usurers of EU/ECB/IMF, with their Greek organs in the interior, the bankers of “systemic banks”, the parrots of the mass media and their political puppets in ND, PASOK and the muddy River, are leading the country to declare disorderly bankruptcy and the people to disaster. An unorthodox war, a postmodern politico-economic coup is underway. They don’t want simply to overthrow the government, they want to terrorize and bring to their knees an entire people, the Greek people, thus giving a message to the other peoples of Europe who are revolting against permanent austerity and monstrous unemployment.
All out in the street, all to the struggle. To overturn the plans of the international troika and the domestic troika. To prevent all those- also inside key-ministries- who are preparing solutions against the people.
Now is the time of the People, not only in the election polls, but first and foremost on the streets and in the struggle for freedom, social justice, and emancipation. The people led by the working class and the youth can and must be mobilized to tear up the ultimatums and all the “Memorandums”, old and new!
Break with capitalism and the European Union here and now! In order to take our lives, social wealth, and power into our hands!
The time of truth has struck. All the compromises with the capitalists inside and outside the country that the leading group of SYRIZA made - with the right-wing nationalists of Kammenos, with Karamanlis’ Right on the issue of the President of the Republic, with the Federation of Greek Industrialists, with the so-called “institutions” of imperialism in Europe and the USA have not only failed but made the capitalists and the mechanisms of the EU and the IMF more aggressive.
We call the popular rank and file and the fighting forces supporting SYRIZA to demand from their leadership to cut the ties of class collaboration with the imperialist institutions, the EU and the IMF, foreign and local capitalists and their political officers.
We call the leadership of the Communist Party of Greece to stop covering with left phraseology the partnership with the domestic troika. The position for a protest vote –in practical terms an invalid vote- in the referendum strengthens the most reactionary bourgeois forces.
A Nationwide Congress of the elected representatives of the entire labour movement, social movements, self-organized people, must be immediately prepared to discuss the alternative program of the way-out of the crisis. So as to prevent others from deciding for us without us.
A United Class Front of all the political and social organizations, movements, collectives, organized and unorganized masses of the working class and the poor popular strata is required, against the class enemy, inside and outside the country.
No to “national unity” Governments. Workers’ Government with workers’ power
