Tsipras’ concessions and Syriza’s left wing
There is a growing tension between Tsipras and the left platform within SYRIZA due to the negotiations with the Troika. However, Syriza’s “left wing” acts only as formal opposition, while in government continuing to support the parliament's decisions.

The Greek people have said NO to the adjustment measures. Now it is time to organise the struggle to defeat the Troika.
With almost all the votes counted, 61% are for "No" and 39% for "Yes". The 22-point difference proves wrong those who predicted a narrow result. According to several sources, the “No” vote was stronger in working class districts and among young voters.

Greece in default, Tsipras’ red lines and the significance of the referendum
Greece has been declared to be “in arrears” after missing a deadline for a €1.5 billion payment to the IMF. As a result, worldwide markets trembled for the last few days. Banks throughout Greece are closed to prevent capital outflow and the people are on the streets. The SYRIZA government has called for a national referendum to vote on the Troika’s draconian proposal, urging the public to vote NO in order to return to the negotiating table.

In solidarity with the Greek workers and people, against the imperialist blackmail
The troika under the instruction of the German government and the imperialist banks have put Greece between a rock and a hard place. In spite of all the concessions made by the Syriza-led government, which had presented a plan accepting 90% of the austerity measures demanded by the creditors, European capital and the IMF are not satisfied and want further cuts. The European institutions want a total surrender by the Greek people. They want the Greek people to accept the payment of the debt and the EU austerity measures that have plunged the country into unprecedented misery. This has been accomplished with the complicity of the Greek capitalist class and its parties. Drop Greece’s debt! No to austerity! We are publishing here a statement by the Trotskyist Fraction - Fourth International.

The right wing gets an adjusted election victory
By a narrow margin – of 29.9% to 27.1% – the right-wing New Democracy (ND) party won the June 17 elections, leaving Syriza in second place. Despite this negligible difference, because of the completely anti-democratic Greek system that guarantees control by the traditional parties of the regime, ND received a “bonus” of 50 deputies (that […]
