The secretary of MERA 25, Giannis Varoufakis, launched an attack on the government from Patras, during a press conference he gave. As he said, “we have a government that has planned the new bankruptcy through the ‘yes to everything’ that starts on April 8, 2020” and added: “The government is investing in this bankruptcy, the new Alisverisi of the Recovery Fund, which will be the fund that will finance the new big scandals of the future and the food and drink of ‘Mitsotakis SA’, without any planning for the next ‘green’ industrial revolution that we have no right to lose “.
Commenting on the Recovery Fund, Yanis Varoufakis said that “money is not enough to be a mechanism to stem the tide of crisis and austerity brought about by the pandemic and the fact that there is no Eurobond.” He also said that “the government’s plan for the Recovery Fund is a menu of various projects, various markets and various investments, but what does not exist is a comprehensive development plan for the country.”
“We,” he continued, “have submitted concrete proposals for the ‘green’ industrial revolution, which should co-finance even this fragile and unacceptable Recovery Fund.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Yanis Varoufakis noted that “the goal is to close small and medium-sized enterprises, cut catering, bankrupt pharmacies, proletarianize family businesses and turn them into large multinational counters.” He added, “As dependence on the Troika grows, so does the current state bankruptcy, as the Greek State undertakes to have larger primary surpluses by 2060, so does the process of impoverishment and bankruptcy of small and medium-sized businesses and the sale of shops and of houses “.
At the same time, he noted that “the financialization of all these small private properties becomes derivatives, which are bought and sold before an auction takes place and so some predators gain excessive profit percentages in a broken economy like Greece.”
Answering a journalist’s question, whether he estimates that there is a possibility of early recourse to the polls, he said that “there are 50-50 chances for early national elections in the fall and we as DAY 25 are ready.” Answering another journalistic question about the possibility of convening with SYRIZA, Yanis Varoufakis stressed, among other things: “With a party that implements memoranda in the name of the left, we look at them with sympathy, wish them good night and move on.”
Giannis Varoufakis will continue his tour in Patras tomorrow, where at 10.30 in the morning he will visit the coastal area of Vrachneika, and will be informed by volunteers of the “Save Coast” collective. At 15.00 at noon he will meet with the pharmaceutical association of Achaia and at 21.00 in the evening he will watch the show “meta-boulouki” in the multifaceted cultural space of the old slaughterhouses of Patras.
