Greens Welcome Greece No Vote

In reaction to the No vote in Greece, Patrick Harvie MSP, co-convenor of the Scottish Greens, said:

“This vote shows austerity has failed and those bearing the brunt will no longer put up with it. Europe must stand with the people of Greece in their rejection of austerity.

"The SYRIZA led government including Greek Greens has stood up to the Troika. Scottish Greens stand in solidarity with them. The Scottish and UK Governments must recognise the will of the Greek people and assist in their democratic effort to end unfair and unnecessary cuts. That should start with putting debt relief on the table during this week's negotiations, as all sides recognize as necessary."
