Why not build a SYRIZA in Canada to stop Harper?

Monday, February 9 at 4:30pm - 5:30pm. Mount Pleasant Community Centre, 1 Kingsway, Vancouver.

Voters in Greece have removed their Harper (and Mulcair) and replaced them with open socialists in a mass party known as SYRIZA. This new government came to power promising to renegotiate debt terms with the European Union that has created poverty worse than the Great Depression.

Canadians have held their noses and voted for our "capitalist workers' party" even as it works hard to cut itself off from the unions who created it and embraced neoliberalism with its massive cuts to social services and public goods. Many wonder if the time has come to create a new party that will actually fight for workers interests.
