Nine months ago, the leader of the Main Opposition party, Alexis Tsipras, advertised to the Greek People that his party would organize structures of solidarity to aid the working class (in an attempt to copy Golden Dawn's Social Solidarity Program that was active, even at a smaller scale, for many years) and those that activism would be funded by the paychecks of their MPs. Those MPs projected their philanthropy on the TVs and the radios in a publicity stunt to touch the hearts of the voters. But it turns out that with idle words they were only make-believe heroes. That's because information reveals that the grand plan of solidarity wasn't so popular with the wallets of the MPs in question. They developed a separate antisocial movement within their movement. Other MPs of SYRIZA reported their comrades on their stance, as they have the responsibility to abide by the collective decisions.
The report was filed by Christos Karagianidis, MP of SYRIZA, who believes it's unethical and against the values of the Left to have his "comrades" keeping the entirety of their wages for themselves. He said:
"I was elected not because I'm smart, not because I'm a good orator, which I'm not, not because I'm beautiful, which I'm not, I became an MP because 1.650.000 people voted for SYRIZA and thousands of members ran around, putting up posters, organizing events so that we can have 71 MPs in the Parliament. This analogy, that the MP wages belong not to us, but to the party and that the party will define how much we get payed, a percentage of our MPs refuses to accept. It's not a political issue, but an ethical one, an issue of values."
The latest Social Solidarity action aimed to provide relief for the homeless. On April 24th, the Women's Front organized a food drive and distributed cans of food, bread, water and clothes to homeless Greeks on the area of Nice.
Specifically, this action started at our Regional Organization, and ended on the Nice State Hospital. At first, we gave food to the homeless inside the hospital and after we were done, we went on the park of the hospital where we found out that the Greeks were gone and were replaced by Roma, flooding the park. Besides the tragic counter-demonstrations they organize against the Movement when we distribute food to Greek only, they now kick out the Greek homeless to stop any food going to them. The Roma started provoking us to start some trouble, in order to justify the police call that had happened earlier. The result was to get the area surrounded with policemen, including Riot Control officers, even though nothing illegal had happened.
The Media told that the participants of this action used violence. They claimed that the members "armed with bats and helmets, entered the hospital with the use of force, from two entrances", as to surround some invisible enemy. Perhaps they didn't notice that on the majority of the participants were women carrying the goods that would be distributed. We are fully aware of the black propaganda war against us and we recognize this event as a way to sabotage the upcoming blood donation campaign by the Green Wing of the Golden Dawn. They are so desperate that they call Golden Dawn's food and clothe drives thuggish.
They are wasting their time, in the end Truth will shine. Golden Dawn has filled them with terror, and in response they try to make demons out of us. We will continue standing in solidarity with the weak, and their lies, counter-demonstrations, mudslinging and bombs will not stop us.
