Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Greece’s Radical Left Coalition SYRIZA Leader in Alexis Tsipras in U.S.
Says No To Austerity Politics
with
Alexis Tsipras, member, Hellenic parliament, Pres. of the Synaspismos
political party, head of the SYRIZA parliamentary group, and leader of
the opposition since June 2012

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

The Radical Coalition of the Left (Syriza) has become Greece's second-largest
party following its dramatic success in parliamentary election’s.  It has
campaigned steadfastly against the recovery blueprint for Greece drawn up by
the European Union (EU) & the International Monetary Fund (IMF).  The party is
led by the country's youngest political leader, Alexis Tsipras.   Tsipras talks
about the unpopular EU-IMF plan, known in Greece as the ''memorandum'' and
says  that the election result represented radical change in both Greece and
Europe, showing that people are not prepared to settle for "barbarous
memorandums" and bailouts.

ATU Local 1181 Strike Update
with
Jimmy Hedge, Exec. Board Member/Delegate,
Amalgamated Transportation Union (ATU) Local 1181

Members of Local 1181 have been on strike, walking picketlines, with the
weather in the teens since Jan.16, in protest of NYC's most recent special
education contract bid, which would exclude their Employee Protection
Provision (EPP) guarantees.  The bid fails to protect both special education
students, & NYC's most experienced and safe drivers and escorts jobs.
Local 1181 members all come from modest means, and keeping their
EPP’s,  their job security is about maintaining their livelihood and the
integrity of their union.
