Harris from the KKE (Greek Communist Party) explains how European Union imposed austerity is ripping Greek society apart. From unemployment to pensions being decimated, health services being slashed and educational standards falling to the lowest in the European Union - Greece is being crushed under the weight of cuts to vital services.

As in Britain and other EU states, the wealth owned by the richest 10% is hugely disproportionate, and in fact that wealth grows significantly as the rest of society pays an unbelievable cost.

In the run-up to the British EU Referendum in 2016, the media reports almost exclusively on virulently rightwing voices & the topics they bring up on the EU debate. The Communist Party believes that we must clearly make Left arguments against the European Union, that it is at it's very core an unreformable anti-working class & anti-socialist club for big business control of workers.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a comprehensive free trade and investment treaty currently being negotiated – in secret – between the European Union and the USA. As officials from both sides acknowledge, the main goal of TTIP is to remove regulatory ‘barriers’ which restrict the potential profits to be made by transnational corporations on both sides of the Atlantic.
