Defiance: Greece and Europe
Wednesday 30 Nov 18.30
With Roger Silverman

This socialist history of modern Greece tells the story of its rebirth in struggle, the resistance to Nazi occupation, the civil war and its aftermath, the colonels' dictatorship and its overthrow, the rise and fall of PASOK, the debt crisis, the popular uprising of 2010-12, the election of SYRIZA, the referendum and the subsequent capitulation. What lessons can Greece's experience teach those campaigning against austerity throughout Europe?

If Europe gets torn apart, it will start at the bottom corner. Greece, the first country in modern times to elect a radical leftwing government, faces economic war from Brussels and a tide of refugees from collapsing states to its east. At this critical moment Roger Silverman’s book views the origins of the Greek crisis using the lens missing from most media coverage: class, class conflict and the problems of a democratic system balanced on deep corruption and oligarchic power. ~ Paul Mason, Economics Editor of Channel 4 News, author of Postcapitalism: A Guide To Our Future and Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013. It was just another day in America; an unremarkable Saturday on which ten children and teens were killed by gunfire. The youngest was nine; the oldest was nineteen. White, Black and Latino, they fell in suburbs, hamlets and ghettos. None made the national news.

There was no outrage about their passing. It was just another day in the death of America, where on a daily average - seven children and teens are killed by guns...
