reaching out to the UK's Greek community and to broader UK society
WHO & WHY
We are the official branch of SYRIZA, the Coalition of the Radical Left, in the United Kingdom.
At a time of such profound crisis of capitalism at the global level, large parts of the working population, the unemployed, and pensioners are continuing to fights against attacks to our social, economic, and political rights at the altar of capital.
The struggling people of Greece are have chosen to express and champion their interests and hopes through SYRIZA – the Coalition of the Radical Left. Since its inception, and since 2015 in government, SYRIZA has been trying to present the alternative to unmitigated neoliberalism, both in Greece, and in Europe. Even though we have been pressured from all sides while in government, and even blackmailed, we have delivered and are delivering policies for the benefit of the many.
SYRIZA UK was established on 11 June 2012, when a number of Greeks – some members of SYRIZA, some sympathisers – met in Clerkenwell, London to set up an officially endorsed branch and to admit new members.
This site is part of SYRIZA UK’s attempts to reach out to the UK’s Greek diaspora, and to broader UK society, to inform, to mobilise, and to build solidarity in our struggles. It aims to contain translations of the key documents and articles as appear on its parent SYRIZA website and as developed by members of SYRIZA UK. This site shall also publicise details about events scheduled to take place.
