Yanis Varoufakis in Australia: A political cover for his role in Syriza’s betrayal

“Syriza is a case study in how pseudo-left bourgeois parties—and the individuals who lead them—will utilise “left” and socialist rhetoric to deceive the working class and gain political power, in order to impose the dictates of the financial and corporate elite.”


Yanis Varoufakis, the finance minister in the Syriza-led Greek government until he resigned on July 6, began a speaking tour in Australia last weekend. After media interviews through the week and a lecture on Thursday at the University of Sydney, he will be the featured speaker at events in Melbourne today and at the Sydney Opera House tomorrow.
