From Greek Civil War to SYRIZA’s Rise to Power in 5 Minutes [Video]

Paul Mason is a British journalist on Channel 4 who recently created an impressive five-minute video, in which he scrupulously describes the rise of Greek leftist party SYRIZA to power in January 2015.

Mason’s narration begins with the Greek civil war and the defeat of the ELAS, continues with the Greek military Junta and the rise of PASOK to power, and concludes with the modern Greek drama launched in 2010 with the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
