Sutton for Peace and Justice is screening ‘This Is A Coup’ – a documentary film telling the story of Greece’s 2015 confrontation with the European Union.
January 2015. A radical left party called Syriza wins the Greek elections. With over 50% youth unemployment, unimaginable public debt and the people struggling under crippling austerity measures, Syriza and its charismatic leader, Alexis Tsipras, is handed a clear mandate for change.
In this four-part unravelling of events, Theopi Skarlatos and Paul Mason look at how Syriza won, what they did, how they clashed with the global financial system and how it all ended. Fully exploiting their unprecedented access to politicians and venturing behind the doors where decisions were made, they chronicle a ‘war’ that highlights the democratic deficit at the heart of the EU.
Produced and narrated by journalist Paul Mason, with extraordinary access to key politicians.
Thursday November 24th, 7.30–9.00pm, doors open at 7.00.
at Sutton Quaker Meeting Hall, Cedar Road, Sutton, SM2 5DA.
There is no advance entry charge, donations will be taken on the night.
