HUNDREDS of people are expected to rally in London today in solidarity with the Greek people saying no to the austerity measures demanded by European leaders.
Trafalgar Square will once more be the setting for a “Greek solidarity festival” hosted by the Debt Jubilee and Greece Solidarity campaigns this afternoon.
Greece will take to the ballot box on Sunday to decide on whether to support a crippling set of bailout conditions proposed by the European Central Bank, the IMF and the European Commission.
MPs and anti-austerity campaigners have been calling for cancellation of the debt bill, in the same way as Germany was relieved of its post-war debt.
Green Party leader Natalie Bennett told the Star: “On Sunday the Greek people are facing a tough choice.
“It’s tough because they’ve been put under tremendous pressure by a troika of institutions with no democratic legitimacy, that is trying to force more austerity on a country that’s already been all but crippled by that policy.
“This is a disaster caused by the financial sector and its agents. If it were a tsunami or an earthquake, the world would be rushing to help.
“We need that kind of response now — significant debt relief and investment in Greece’s future.”
Ms Bennett will be speaking at today’s rally alongside sacked Athens worker Harris Sideris and others.
Those attending will also be asked to drop their vote on a People’s Ballot on Austerity, with Nos expected to overwhelmingly win.
