An evening with Yanis Varoufakis and Owen Jones

Thanasis Gavos   Wednesday, 6 April 2016; from 6:30pm, talks starts 7:30pm
Owen Jones, Union Chapel, Varoufakis,

The crisis in Europe is not over, it’s getting worse. The origins of the collapse go far deeper than our leaders are prepared to admit and we have done nothing so far to fix them, leaving the weakest citizens of the weakest nations to pay the price. In conversation with Owen Jones, columnist for the Guardian and author of The Establishment, the world-renowned economist will discuss the two major issues of the day: Europe and austerity.

In 2015, Yanis Varoufakis became the world’s most prominent opponent of austerity when, as finance minister of Greece, he refused to accept the terms of the loan agreement dictated to his bankrupt country by the Eurozone’s leaders. Since resigning his post he has become the figurehead of an international grassroots movement to democratise Europe.

Varoufakis visits London for the publication of his new book, And The Weak Suffer What They Must?, in which he explains the origins of Europe’s current crisis and warns of the threat it now poses to global stability.
