Eurogroup tramples on democracy once again

“The Eurogroup´s cold-hearted ideologues have once again trampled on European democracy. First they blackmailed the democratically-elected Greek government for months; now they have denied the Greek people the possibility to decide about the Eurogroup´s proposal.

“It would have been no problem for the finance ministers to extend the programme for a few days to make this possible. But they did not want to give the Greek people this freedom. They prefer to see the only left government in the EU failing and, because of this, they are putting European integration at risk. Now, EU leaders must find a last-minute solution. The EU's future lies in their hands.”
