    "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: ANA-MPA -- SYRIZA is fighting for a radical political change, main opposition 'Radical Left Coalition' leader Alexis Tsipras told the "New York Times" in an interview on Monday. "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: "We are fighting for a very big change, a radical political change," Tsipras said, adding that "what has happened in Greece in the last few years is a stain on European civilization." "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: Tsipras's comments followed the recent opening ceremony of Greece's presidency in the EU, which SYRIZA's leader decided not to attend. "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: According to the paper, Tsipras said he wanted no part in a "pre-election fiesta" put on by Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. He added he couldn't cheer economic policies that are largely dictated by Germany and have made budget cuts and other austerity measures the main prescription for Europe's economic ills. "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: Tsipras said that the European Union "has become a Germanic Union" and put Greece and other struggling nations "on a very bad road" by demanding grinding austerity in return for bailout funds. "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: "Our main enemy, our main opponent, is the fear that the government and media try to create about SYRIZA and a leftist government in Greece," Tsipras said. "We are fighting for a very big change, a radical political change. In front of every change there are a lot of people who are afraid for the future." "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: According to the press report, Tsipras has backed away from past rhetoric about abandoning the euro, but wants a fundamental reworking of the terms of Greece's bailout funds. "Verdana","sans-serif";mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";mso-bidi-font-family: "Our intention is to change the framework, not smash the euro," he said. He also suggested that Europe should hold a conference on debt akin to that held in London in 1953, where an agreement was made to write off a big chunk of the debts amassed by Germany before and after World War II.
