Statement of Solidarity with the People of Greece

oxiYork People’s Assembly wants to express its solidarity with the Greek People in their fight against austerity. It recognizes that the fight of the Greeks against the conditions imposed by the Troika is the same fight that all victims of austerity are facing in Britain. It declares that the path to austerity is a path to social collapse and economic depression.

York People’s Assembly invites the people of Greece to reject the requests of the European Central Bank, the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund, and to take their destiny back into their own hands. We believe that another economy is possible, we believe that austerity must be stopped.
