The election victory of the left-wing Syriza coalition in Greece has 
spurred widespread comment and discussion. On the right, some commentators 
warn of imminent catastrophe while others urge negotiations. On the left, 
some hail it as huge step for anti-capitalism, some see it as positive but 
express concerns, and some (inevitably, it seems) are already denouncing 
it as a reformist betrayal-in-progress. We can be sure that there will be 
much more discussion and debate as events unfold. 

This article offers a perspective that has not yet received much 
attention, identifying Syriza as part of a trend towards left-green 
alliances across Europe.
