Five key figures of the European left have launched a new initiative “for a
Plan B in Europe”.

A statement was jointly published on September 11 by former Die Linke (Left
Party) leader Oskar Lafontaine from Germany; Italian deputy and economist
Stefano Fassina, leader of France's Left Party Jean-Luc Melenchon, and
former deputy and parliamentary speaker Zoe Kostantopoulou and ex-finance
minister Yanis Varoufakis from Greece — both former members of SYRIZA who
resigned after the left-wing party accepted harsh austerity measures in
July.
