February 20, 1942 and the weekly progressive journal Greek-American Tribune is published with a cover that shows imprisoned Greece asking for help. The commentary of the newspaper is indicative of the tendency to opt for anti-fascist unity, postponing to the future the issue of social transformation: ”Τhe immediate issue is how Greece will be liberated, not how she will be governed. This truth is very simple and it is surprising that there are those who do not understand it”. (from Greek American Radicals ~ the untold story).
As Alan Gilbert says in a recent post – Greek Resistance:
May the Greek people again stand up! We all have a common interest in standing up to the Banks and the Koch brothers/Adelsons, et al (and the mainstream parties, including, sadly. Obama in so far as they represent them). To survive, let alone flourish, we need to be democratic internationalists…For an action to be taken now, see here.
For the Greek people carry our fate, too. We should stand with them.
