The Real Plan B : The New Greek Marathon – The Bullet No. 1145
What the deeper preparation for leaving the eurozone and possibly also the EU, actually entails [in Greece] is to build on the solidarity networks that have developed in society to cope with the crisis as the basis for starting to transform social relations within Greece. That is the real plan B, the terrain on which both Syriza and the social movements might re-invigorate now. What, more concretely, might this mean?
The recent years of struggle have developed the famous grassroots solidarity movement that began – as all organizing must – by addressing the needs of people. Out of this grew the some 400 solidarity groups all across Greece addressing basic community needs organized democratically to run collectives which meet people’s health, food, housing and other needs.
