Antarsya? Well, I think they're bigger than you give them credit for [admittedly, this doesn't translate electorally] and certainly more rooted in the class - but should they stand? Well, I can't see the point - it would seem to undermine their whole position to me, but....
>From afar I too have the same thought, and that was reinforced for me by Richard Seymour's recent magnificent article on the issue on his blog Lenin's Tomb. It seems to me, again from afar, the ANTARSYA have a good organisational position (i.e. remaining separate from SYRIZA) but their specific tactical response of standing is in my view less than optimal.
