Syriza and Podemos: A Necessary Balance Sheet

Syriza and Podemos emerged in Southern Europe in the context of a deep capitalist crisis and a concomitant crisis of the political regimes. Both political formations occupied the vacant space left by the decline in popularity of European social democracies, who are responsible for rigorously implementing the neoliberal agenda against workers and youth over the last decades.

Sanders, a Third Party, or a Working Class Party?

Without a doubt, the Bernie Sanders phenomenon offers new opportunities as well as potential pitfalls for the left in the U.S. We intend to discuss the positions of various socialist left parties vis-à-vis the presidential elections and the Sanders candidacy in the coming weeks and months.

It has been only two months since the massive victory of the “NO“ vote in the referendum on the third memorandum. This government, which assumed power as a left coalition, and ended up accepting the toughest structural adjustment plan yet imposed by foreign creditors, is now being given a "second opportunity".
