OXI! from Times Square in New York City, July 5, 2015
Dear Friends and Supporters of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy,
Many of you have asked how to support the people of Greece as they defy the dictates of the elites of Europe. Yesterday we received the appeal below from "Solidarity for All," the grassroots movement that has sustained people during the grinding imposed austerity of recent years. You may have heard about Solidarity for All's tremendous work sharing food, medical care, and social dignity in Greece during its U.S. tour in June, sponsored by several Greece solidarity groups including CPD. Your help is especially critical now that the confrontation with the Troika has come to a head.
Please give as generously as you can, and invite your union, anti-war organization, religious or social justice group to do the same. Note "Solidarity for All" on your check made out to Campaign for Peace and Democracy, and send it to us at Campaign for Peace and Democracy, 2808 Broadway, #12, New York, NY 10025. If you are donating by PayPal, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we earmark your contribution as being in response to this appeal from Greece.
In peace and solidarity,
Joanne Landy and Tom Harrison
URGENT APPEAL FROM SOLIDARITY FOR ALL IN GREECE

THE VICTORY OF "NO" ESCALATES OUR FIGHT
WE SHALL NOT SUCCUMB
TO THE ASPHYXIATION OF THE GREEK PEOPLE
SUPPORT THE GRASSROOTS SOLIDARITY STRUCTURES
We would like wholeheartedly to thank you for your touching solidarity and the high levels of mobilization that did not leave the Greek people, not even a minute, alone in the fight against the blackmails, lies and terror.
The victory of NO has sent a clear and defiant message altering the landscape of our common struggles. Those who pillage our lives and ignore the will of the people cannot ignore us any more. Now, either they listen to us or they stay naked of any “democratic” disguises may yet carry, revealing their true nature and interests.
The next day brings a further escalation of the confrontation with the creditors and their political gangs and we do not expect them to back down easily. We know only too well that we deal with conditions of a developing economic and social war and we have to fight fierce battles together. The grassroots solidarity movement already prepares for the next round of resistance in the difficult ground of imposed capital controls, financial straggling, further recession and humanitarian crisis.
We ask you now, more than ever, to stand by our side, by the side of the Greek society by developing as soon as possible concrete and material solidarity campaigns.
Donations and crowd funding campaigns for food and medical aid, personal hygiene goods, baby formula, diapers and stationary, are among the most pressing needs. Do not hesitate to contact us should you need more information and/or ideas.
The ability of Greek people to live with dignity is fundamental in order to counter the enforced asphyxiation and maintain its courage and resistance. Together we can materialise the decisive NO of the Greek people as the big YES was for a different society in another Europe.
Solidarity for All
