Where did SYRIZA come from? | SocialistWorker.org

Greece's Coalition of the Radical Left, known as SYRIZA by its initials in Greek, emerged from small-party status with a stunning second-place finish in national elections on May 6. SYRIZA won mass support, especially among workers, because of its pledge to repudiate the drastic austerity measures imposed on Greece in return for Europe's financial bailouts.


SYRIZA is proof that an organization with clear left-wing policies, which engages in common action and is democratic and well organized, can provide a popular and effective challenge to the politics of neoliberalism and social democracy.
