No to Blackmail, Solidarity with the Greek People

On the occasion of the referendum in Greece, Québec solidaire, the Solidarity Committee with the Greek People, Alternatives and the Montreal Regional Labour Council (FTQ) are organizing this coming Saturday July 4th at 10:45am, a solidarity action in front of the Greek Consulate at 1002 Sherbrooke West in Montreal, corner McTavish, facing McGill University.

The Greek government has called upon its people to decide by means of a referendum to be held next Sunday whether to accept or reject the austerity terms proposed by the «Troika». We, the organizers of this solidarity action, call upon all to respect thefundamental right of the Greek people and the decision that will emerge from the referendum. The only possible solution to the crisis in Greece must be based on respect for the people’s choice.

Faced with undue pressures and ultimatums from the Troika, from the European Central Bank, the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund, the Syriza government has chosen to let the people express theirfundamental right to decide their future. Enough with ultimatums and false negotiations!

Let the Greek People Speak Without Blackmail and Threats.

No to Austerity, Yes to Democracy!
