Tsipras: Pandemic a “Historic Turning Point” That Forces a Different View of Things

ATHENS — "Now that we are slowly overcoming our anxiety about whether we will live, our great concern is about how we will live, what we will face when we open the door," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday, addressing the 6th Delphi Economic Forum.

Pointing out that the pandemic is not over, since there are still people losing their lives, he stressed that "anxiety over the next day is becoming dominant."

"The pandemic is a historic turning point that forces governments and political forces to see things differently," he said.

"What has value today is that the dominant model [that sees the] constant reproduction of capitalism through crises that widen inequalities but enable an increase of profits by elites leading us to prosperity, is shutting down, failing and we are starting to think differently," he said.


ATHENS - Foreign Minister George Gerapetritis will have a series of bilateral and multilateral contacts οn Thursday in New York, as part of the High Level Week of the 78th General Assembly of the United Nations.
