The result of the Greek elections has shown that the people of Greece have taken a strong stand against the politics of austerity.
Greens share the view of the new government that austerity is a failed model which has piled misery on the poorest while making the wealthiest even richer.
This result shows that challenging business as usual politics can win the support of the people.
In the UK we are witnessing a Green Surge, in no small part due to our anti-austerity agenda, and we hope the Greek election result marks the beginnings of ordinary people standing up to a discredited economic model and failing Governments across Europe.
