During a visit to Corinth to take part in a farmers’ blockade, political veteran and activist Manolis Glezos did not mince his words in criticizing the Syriza-led government and PM Alexis Tsipras. In a tone that displayed his bitter disappointment over how things have turned out under the Syriza government, Glezos apologized to the Greek people for trusting Tsipras, saying that the current PM cares only about power.
Glezos, once a close associate of Alexis Tsipras and a former member of the European Parliament, also expressed his dismay for the use of tear gas by Greece’s riot police against protesting farmers in Thessaloniki and then went on to say that every ruling party governs in an authoritarian way.
