Pablo Iglesias: ‘It is called SYRIZA in Greece, in Spain it is Podemos’

For more on SYRIZA and the election in Greece.

January 23, 2015 — Stokokkino.gr, posted at Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal — Alexis Tsipras was joined on stage by Pablo Iglesias, leader of Spanish leftist party Podemos. Supporters waved Greek flags and placards reading “Change Greece, change Europe!”, while loudspeakers blared lyrics from the Leonard Cohen song, “First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin”.
“The wind of democratic change is blowing, a change in Europe, of a change in Greece”, Iglesias told the rally. “It is called SYRIZA in Greece, and in Spain it is called Podemos.”

Earlier Iglesias gave an interview to the radio station StoKokkino, in which he underlined that the forthcoming electoral win of SYRIZA will be a promise to the majority of Europe’s people, because “SYRIZA, like Podemos in Spain and Sinn Fein in Ireland, is fighting first of all for democracy.”
