Anderson to show solidarity with people of Greece in Athens

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson will travel to Athens tomorrow to stand in solidarity with the Greek people in their battle against austerity.

Ms Anderson said;

“As a proud Irish republican and dedicated internationalist, I will be in Athens on Sunday with my party colleague Pearse Doherty to stand in solidarity with the people of Greece.

“The Greek people have an opportunity to send a clear message to the right wing elites of Europe that austerity is wrong and will not be tolerated.

“This referendum is democracy in action and stands in contrast to the anti-democratic actions of the ECB, IMF, and the European Commission in attempting to force further austerity on Greece.

“I wish the Greek people well in the referendum and encourage them to stand firm in the face of the relentless austerity regime imposed on them.

“Sinn Féin will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with Syriza and the people of Greece in opposing austerity.”
