Campaign: #TheGreekFiles

Mr Draghi, what are you afraid of?

Release #TheGreekFiles!

Join the campaign to demand that the ECB publish the legal opinion it commissioned on whether its closure of Greece’s banks in 2015 was… legal

What is this campaign?

Deep in a vault in the headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) lie #TheGreekFiles, a legal opinion about the ECB’s actions towards Greece in 2015 that could send shockwaves across Europe.

As a European taxpayer, you paid for these documents. But the ECB’s boss, ex-Goldman Sachs head Mario Draghi, says you can’t see them.

So former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and MEP Fabio de Masi, together with a broad alliance of politicians and academics (below), have announced they will file a mass freedom of information request to the ECB to uncover #TheGreekFiles once and for all.

If Mario says no, they’ll take the campaign to the next level, and consider all options – including legal action – to make this vital information public.

Greek PM Tsipras: We want a clear sign that progress has been made in Eurogroup’s statement 

We want in Monday’s Eurogroup a clear statement of the progress made in the last period, said according to sources, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the government council’s meeting on Sunday. However, in any case, any agreement reached must be within the framework of the people’s mandate, he clarified.

The same sources noted that Greece has made recorded efforts and is totally consistent on the fulfillment of its obligations proving in parallel its volition for an agreement, of a mutually beneficial agreement, for which, and Greece’s partners should make the appropriate moves.

Government’s circles estimate that a positive recording in Monday’s Eurogroup statement will be equivalent with a positive and optimistic message towards the prospect of reaching an agreement and in parallel will be a message to ECB to relax the suffocating financial framework on Greece.

After Tsipras’ opening speech, the government council was briefed by Government Vice President Yiannis Dragasakis, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and Alternate Foreign Minister for Economic International Relations Euclid Tsakalotos
