The shock victory of the left wing Syriza party in Greece has sent shock waves through Greece and Europe.

 

With a radical agenda the party hope to fight the austerity imposed on Greece and implications could be huge. Maybe.

Two minutes after the result was announced they posted an online link to Patti Smith’s anthemic  “People Have the Power,” on twitter which has  become something of an unofficial anthem for the populist movement (for some reason they were also playing the Clash’s fab London Calling as well) . The lyrics below from the Patti Smith song summing up the party’s idealism.

 

The people have the power

The power to dream

To rule

To wrestle the Earth from fools

It’s decreed

The people rule
