Syriza and Socialist Strategy

February 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Hosted by International Socialism
Wednesday 25 February 2015, 7pm

with Stathis Kouvelakis, member of Syriza’s central committee and Alex Callinicos, editor, International Socialism

The victory of Syriza in the Greek elections has raised important debates about how to achieve fundamental social change. Can the new government overthrow austerity and, more fundamentally, is this confirmation of the method of “seizing power by elections, but combining that with social mobilisation” as Stathis Kouvelakis has written?

Alex Callinicos has said that “revolutionary socialists should celebrate the new government’s victory and support the progressive measures it takes. But the entire Greek radical left will be judged by how successfully they promote working people’s self-organisation, confidence, and combativity. That is where the power to end austerity lies.”

Come and debate crucial issues of socialist strategy.
