French Feminists, Left Socialists, Greens and Communists Back Syriza.

A 500 strong meeting in support of Syriza with the leader of the French Green Party (EELV), the left of the Socialist Party, Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the French Communist Party was held in Paris yesterday.

The objective was to support the right of the Greek people to take their own destiny in hand. That is, to help Syriza and its leader, Alexis Tsipras, – at present leading the polls for next Sunday’s elections in Greece. Another objective was to show that an “alternative” – rosé (Socialist), green and red is possible in France.

“Si Syriza gagne, puis Podemos, nous aurons du vent dans les voiles”

If Syriza wins, then Podems, we’ll have wind in our sails!

Full report Libération.

Interviewed on France Inter this morning Cécile Duflot, head of France’s greens, was not clear as to whether such an alliance was possible.

The report on the radio station mentioned that Olivier Besancenot of the Nouveau Parti anti-Capitaliste (NPA) had also been present at the rally.
