Greece: Neither “Honorable Compromise” nor “Accidental Rupture”—The Only Way Forward is a Socialist Policy (Part Five)
- Stamatis Karagiannopoulos
Today we publish the fifth part of Stamatis Karagiannopoulos’s article on the situation in Greece. The series was originally published in Greek on the website of the Communist Tendency of Syriza at the end of April this year.
The influence and power of the Left Platform justifiably worries the bourgeoisie, which trembles at the idea that self-proclaimed communists could gain control of SYRIZA. But this undeniable fact does not absolve the leadership of the Left Platform from their serious political mistakes and contradictions in policy. Now that confusion and anxiety over the “honorable compromise” dominates the working class, the main political task is to clarify the blurred political stance and give a comprehensive political alternative for the youth and militants of SYRIZA.
