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.
