Greek opposition leader says 'for sale' sign placed on Greece
Leader of Greeces' Radical left party Syriza, Alexis Tsipras speaks at the Parliament in Athens, Saturday, July 7, 2012. Tsipras accused the coalition government of wanting to "deepen" the terms of the bailout deals which, according to him, have brought hardship and misery, and of wanting to sell Greece's resources on the cheap.
Alexis Tsipras, head of the Coalition of the Radical Left party, known as Syriza, told Parliament Saturday he was especially warning those who want to "grab state property on the cheap." He warned would-be buyers of state property that they might lose all their money and face criminal proceedings.
Tsipras proposes a moratorium on the payment of Greece's debt until the country, mired in a deep recession, returns to growth. He predicts his party will soon come to power because the coalition government will fail.
