Senator Sanders : The Bankers v Greece

“The people of Greece and the anti-austerity party, Syriza, they elected to lead them are struggling to rebuild their economy so that ordinary people there can live with a shred of dignity and security,” Sen. Bernie Sanders wrote in an op-ed first published by The Guardian. With an existing aid agreement due to expire on Friday, Sanders wrote that “powerful international interests are putting the pro-growth, pro-worker experiment in progressive democracy currently underway in grave danger.

“The new Greek government needs support in establishing pro-growth policies which create jobs, expand their economy and enable them to pay down their debts. Demanding that creditors are paid before any of that is allowed to happen may come at a very heavy price for more than just the people of Greece,” the senator concluded.

Ed Note: There has been a temporary extension of the loans for four months.  The conflict remains essentially the same.

In March, Philadelphia DSA members showed up in droves with healthcare workers, community members, and elected leaders to pass a Philadelphia city-wide resolution supporting the Medicare for All Act of 2017 and affirming universal access to healthcare as a human right. This victory showed that in a city where the poverty rate is over 26%, city council leaders learned where to stand when it comes to universal healthcare. To move a national campaign to win Medicare for All, we need to build support from a broad range of cities and municipalities across the country. With some research, planning, and lobbying, you could work with city council members to pass a resolution of support in your city too!
