Alexis Tsipras tied Greece’s efforts to counter the rise of the far right with putting an end to “barbaric austerity” as he delivered a second speech in Germany as part of left-wing Die Linke’s campaign ahead of Sunday’s elections.

Alexis Tsipras tied Greece’s efforts to counter the rise of the far right with putting an end to “barbaric austerity” as he delivered a second speech in Germany as part of left-wing Die Linke’s campaign ahead of Sunday’s elections.

“We have to stop the spread of the neo-Nazis and this cannot happen through wishful thinking but by eradicating the hateful ideology and ending the barbaric policy of austerity,” said Tsipras in a speech in Wiesbaden on Thursday night, where he was accompanied by Die Linke’s former co-chairman, Oskar Lafontaine.

Tsipras then traveled to Austria, where he held meetings with a number of politicians in Vienna yesterday.
