Why I will be voting NO in Sunday’s Greek referendum
Antonis Vradis, Open Democracy, June 29, 2015
Sunday’s referendum vote is not about one fiscal detail or another, a bad agreement or one that is less so. In its essence, Sunday’s question is about dignity and our lives from this point on.
It is about the dignity to do away with the criminal gang-in-suits that has made even the otherwise despicable face of political power appear well-intended and innocent. And it is a question of whether we (as individuals, not as this weird idea of “a people”: more on this in a second) want to continue living a life of excruciating uncertainty, never-ending ultimatums and emergencies, of humiliation and sorrow.
