Alexis Tsipras & Yannis Varoufakis

Mikis Theodorakis, with a text he uploaded on his personal website, gives his opinion on the latest political developments in Greece, in which the epicenter is the meeting between the Greek Finance Minister, Giannis Varoufakis, and the Eurogroup President, Jeroen Dijsselbloem.

"The Eurogroup and its Dutch President are images that torture me. I have been through so much, simply because by Fate I was born Greek, and as a Greek I should not only endure the whims of those who are powerful, but to lower my head and even learn to love them!
But I could never bring myself to like that Dutchman with glasses.

And so he arrived like an arrogant boss, to scold a nation worthy of laughter and tears,
a nation that held its head high forgetting their inhabitants are the second-class citizens of Europe,
of the Eurogroup and of its President, Mr. Jeroen Dijsselbloem.

But then a miracle happened, like those forgotten in the depths of my memory.
Two representatives of these second-class people, Tsipras and Varoufakis, with a rare calm and coolness, presented him with two luminous yet kind “NO”
that angered him to the point of forgetting his role as an “European nobleman” — prompting him to storm away looking for the fastest exit.

It is at this point that all is forgotten.
We once again become proud Greeks. We stand up.
How and why this has happened and where it will lead are details for the Greeks who have lived and survived with symbols.
And I consider it cowardly to focus on trivialities in a moment of national pride."

Athens, 31/01/2015, Mikis Theodorakis
