Mélenchon: Greece was transformed into a financial lab

"When Tsipras won, I met Hollande to defend the case of the Greeks. I told him: If we allow to act against them, France will be next. Essentially, they already treat us like the Greeks ... ".

This is what Jean-Luc Mélenchon, candidate with the Left Front in the French presidential election of 2012, points in an interview to «Humanite» on the occasion of his book. As Melanson says, a strong motivation to write the book «Le Hareng de Bismarck», through which defends Greece, is the way that SYRIZA and the new Greek government treated.

Mr. Mélenchon states he is outraged by the Berlin attitude, but also with the reluctance of the French President, François Hollande, to show solidarity to Greece.

"It's a heavy political mistake against the European ideal to be allowed such a behavior against a member state of the EU ' notes, observing that Greece was turned into a financial laboratory and that is used as an example to show "how to deal with those who resist."

The French Leftist leader adds: "The behavior of Berlin does not find support anywhere and the Germanophobia erupts everywhere in Europe." He notes that another reason that prompted him to write this book was to refute the idea of the financial "one-way".
