Once again the true nature of the European Union is exposed. Behind the face of a Europe of “solidarity” there is nothing more than bullying, arm twisting and blackmail. The much vaunted sharing of values is nothing more than a cloak to disguise the power of the European and U.S. monopolies. It is their global interest that lies at the very heart of the European Union.
The denouncing of the the Greek government’s decision to hold a popular referendum by the European Union official spokespersons is further testimony as to how shallow the commitment of the ruling classes is to democracy. It is and always has been one of do as we say and do as you are told.
Those who still harbour illusions as to the real nature of the European Union and that somehow it can be transformed from within need to rethink this unrealistic position.
Once again workers of Europe need to stand in solidarity with the Greek workers in opposition to the European Union and what it is attempting to impose upon working people.
There is no doubt there will be cacophony of threats and expressions of dire consequences to be heard from all the pro EU parties and press both here in Ireland and across the EU.
But they cannot hide the reality that the aim of the European Union is to solve the crisis at the expense of the working class.
