On March 16, Leader of the Opposition, Alexis Tsipras completed his
visit in London, where he met the trade union leaders of Great
Britain, and the members of the Coalition of Resistance and Solidarity
Campaign organization for Greece.

His first meeting with the unions was held at the Trades Union
Congress’ bureaus, where Tsipras spoke with Secretary General of the
Trades Union Congress, Frances O ‘Grady.  O ‘Grady expressed the
unions’ solidarity to SYRIZA and the Greek people’s efforts to face
the austerity policy imposed on Greece. They both agreed to have
closer contact and cooperation in the future.

The Resistance Coalition and the Solidarity Campaign for Greece are
organizations often involved in protests and demonstrations against
austerity. Many times these organizations have actively expressed
their solidarity to Greece, highlighting the problems the country is
facing because of the crisis.

The left-wing politician met John Crow, responsible for the political
schedule of the Labour Party. They agreed that the European powers of
the Left should work together against austerity.

During his three-day visit, Tsipras had the opportunity to give two
very important speeches, one at the London School of Economics and the
other at the Friends Meeting House in north west London. He also gave
interviews to the Guardian newspaper and to press agency, Bloomberg.
