"The Greek people's mandate is undoubtedly closing the vicious circle of austerity. Your mandate in undoubtedly cancelling the bailouts of austerity and destruction, Greek people's mandate has put the troika in the past," Tsipras told thousands of cheering supporters in his first comments after partial results showed his party on track to win.
"Our victory is useful for the European people who fight against austerity."
Greece to leave Disastrous Austerity Behind ~ link ~ link ~ What happened to Greece was nothing but the global banksters loading the Greek nation with massive amounts of debt, unnecessary debt, by bribing the political class. This was followed by the imposed "bailout" and its Austerity Fascist requirements that amounted to stripping the nation and its people of THEIR property, including that which "was nailed down", in a massive outright stealing of everything possible by the global elite. Now the people, in the very nation that brought us democracy thousands of years ago, are standing up to the evil crooks. More power to them and may God protect them and us from the evil ones!!!

Greece elections: Syriza and the EU on a collision course after election ~ link ~
Syriza, led by Alexis Tsipras, won between 36 and 38 per cent of the vote compared to between 26 and 28 per cent for the conservative New Democracy Party of the Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, who has led the government over the past two years. He was defeated because he failed to end the bailout, get a Greek debt reduction, lift the economy out of deep recession despite some recent improvements and get the IMF removed from the much-hated troika (EU, ECB and IMF) that has exercised a near-colonial control over the Greek economy.
Opposition Syriza Party has won the Greece legislative vote ~ link ~
Partial results from legislative elections in Greece show the opposition Syriza party has garnered a big victory, with the Greek prime minister conceding defeat to the leader of the anti-austerity party.
According to the Interior Ministry's preliminary results released on Sunday, Syriza won 36.5 percent of the vote, or 150 seats in the country’s 300-seat parliament.
Based on the results, the conservative New Democracy party of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras secured 28.31 percent or 78 seats.

To the booming sounds of Rock the Kasbah by The Clash, Syriza's leader Alexis Tsipras told a rally of thousands of supporters he would defeat 'austerity which destroys our common European future'.
A majority of voters in Greece have essentially rejected a core policy for dealing with the eurozone crisis as devised by Brussels and Berlin, our correspondent adds.
Syriza Wins ~ link ~
It appeared to be just one seat short of a majority. Mr Tsipras said that Greece is "leaving behind disastrous austerity" as Syriza takes power. Exit polls suggested a clear win for the party which has threatened to overturn Brussels-imposed austerity measures.
European Debt Revolution: Can Syriza's plan work? ~ link ~
Syriza’s promises to call an end to the Brussels-mandated budgetary austerity policies which both socialist and centre-right governments have been following since 2010 are not new - politicians of the left and right have been promising to ease austerity across much of Europe over the past couple of years.
But what is potentially groundbreaking is Syriza’s proposal to convene a European Debt Conference, modelled on the London Agreement on German External Debts in 1953 which wrote off around 60 percent of West Germany’s debts following the Second World War, and which Syriza hopes would lead to a huge write-down of government debt for Greece and other southern European countries.
The idea was initially mooted by Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras in 2012 when the left-wing coalition finished second in the last Greek elections. Roundly dismissed as fantasy for almost all the two years since then, the proposal is at the heart of the party’s campaign manifesto and Syriza insists it won’t back down if it wins the election.
Is this the day Europe gets its Future Back? ~ link ~
With The Greek election in full motion, and first results perhaps 12 hours away, It would seem useful, no matter how the Greeks vote, to lay to rest a few misconceptions, and to expose a few ‘conceptions’ that have – largely – remained buried to date.
The first misconception is that the Greeks borrowed like crazy and therefore deserve to be thrown into a pit of suffering and misery. It is simply nonsense, a mere political narrative. Besides, most of what was borrowed went to the utterly corrupt ‘oligarch system’, not to the people in the street. Something the EU was certainly aware of when it accepted Greece as a member. But corrupt regimes can be of great use.
A few days back, in Bunch Of Criminals!, I made the point that the EU, and its members, have no right to do to a fellow member country what they did to Greece – and want to continue doing -.
