A Workers Party meeting to discuss a principled left exit (LEXIT) from the European Union has heard that not only is it un-reformable but that it is impossible to ignore the class character of the EU and its institutions.
‘The EU serves the interests of big business, multinational corporations and the financial institutions,’ Party International Secretary Gerry Grainger told the meeting.
‘The policies of the EU have made the rich richer and the poor poorer’, he said.
Guest speaker at the meeting was Elisseos Vagenas a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece, (KKE) who reported on the lessons learnt in Greece from the Europe Union and the crisis in capitalism.
