This referendum is a fight between the Greeks and Europe’s cruel capitalism | Aditya Chakrabortty

This referendum is a fight between the Greeks and Europe’s cruel capitalism | Aditya Chakrabortty | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

urope’s top politicians agree that the Greeks will vote this Sunday on one of the most important questions facing any nation. Yet they can’t settle what that question actually is. For Alexis Tsipras, the Greek prime minister, it is about whether his people will tolerate any more “strict and humiliating austerity”. Not so, says Germany’s Angela Merkel. She reckons the Greeks are choosing between staying in the euro and returning to the drachma. The stakes are raised higher still by the boss of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker: come next weekend, “the whole planet” will find out whether Greece wants to remain in Europe.
