PLACE: News & Letters Library 228 S. Wabash, Room 230, Chicago

News and Letters Committees invites you to a meeting on:

Whither Greece?


Greece is suffering from massive unemployment and poverty, worse than any “developed” country since the Great Depression of the 1930s. At the same time, the workers, youth, immigrants, women, and LGBTQ people of Greece have held some of the most militant strikes and occupations in the world.

In this situation, the radical Left party Syriza rose to power and is engaged in difficult negotiations with the country’s creditors, with potential debt defaults looming and a July 5 referendum that could lead to the first ever exit of a country from the Eurozone monetary union.

The meeting will address:

  • What are the roots of Greece’s economic crisis?
  • What are the forces of revolt in Greece?
  • Does Syriza offer a model for the Left in the U.S.?
  • How do postmodernism and post-Marx Marxism influence Syriza?
