Running on an uncompromising anti-austerity platform, Greece’s Syriza party, the Coalition of the Radical Left, won a decisive victory over the conservative New Democracy party in the economically battered nation’s Jan. 25 election. Syriza fell only two seats short of winning an absolute majority in Greece’s 300-seat Parliament, prompting party leader Alexis Tsipras to form an alliance with the small, center right Independent Greeks party to form a governing coalition.

The journey won’t be easy, and will require a lot of work to build widespread support. This is the reason for making this appeal to create teams for the ongoing collaborative effort needed in order to make this happen.

These are among the virtues of "sharing-economy" gigs, as touted in a recent Uber-commissioned survey of its drivers. Other companies offering peer-to-peer platforms, such as Airbnb, TaskRabbit and Homejoy, have made similar pitches: They're giving workers — particularly those who are unable to land traditional jobs or unfulfilled by 9-to-5 Organization Man duties — the freedom to take their breadwinning fates into their own hands.

'Hope begins today was their mantra': the inside story of Syriza's rise to power - Dark Mountain - Medium

Syriza’s victory has electrified the left in Europe — even moderate social democrats who have floundered in search of ideas and inspiration since the 2008 crisis. Now there is talk everywhere of “doing a Syriza” — and in Spain, where the leftist party Podemos is scoring 25% in the polls, more than talk.

MODEST PROPOSAL

MODEST PROPOSAL | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The establishment of this blog coincided with our  campaign for a rational resolution of the euro crisis. By we, I mean Stuart Holland and myself. Such a resolution, we felt, was always feasible within the current insititional framework but requires clear vision and political will to implement. Moreover, it can be agreed to by people of different political persuasions since it is founded upon a minimalist, common sense, set of assumptions and policy recommendations.
