German leftparty: Wagenknecht demands vote about EURO-membership

1 Jul

http://www.focus.de/finanzen/videos/volksbefragung-zu-griechenland-politik-wie-tsipras-vorzeige-linke-wagenknecht-fordert-jetzt-auch-euro-abstimmung-in-deutschland_id_4787518.html

While I protested when the Greeks were obviously not allowed to vote on sunday, I dont think its very necessary to open a discussion about the Euro in Germany, because it’s mostly a topic overrun by fascists and widely used to strengthen the national identity in terms of a currency. It’s not economic woes here, but some fascist reasoning regarding Germany. So, I think Wagenknecht’s demand is utterly displaced here and this idea is not very helpful in the discussion at all. Furthermore, the headline of the article is utterly misleading: it says Wagenknecht said that she wants a Euro vote. That is wrong. She only said that she wants a vote about the recovery measures. I mean you may interpret it like this. But thats some form over overinterpretation then.
