If there were demonstrations across Europe for such a referendum and possibly a call for a second referendum on a Tobin Tax on the financial institutions that caused the crisis, then the parties of the Left in Britain and Europe would be leading the fightback both theoretically and in practice. This would be proactive rather than reactive, progressive rather than reactionary and regressive.
This is what the Marxist Left parties should be seeing form a Marxist perspective an international response to the crisis of capitalism not a nationalist response, leave that to the English Defence League BNP, UKIP and Right-wing Tory Eurosceptics.
So let’s see those red flags out on the streets of Athens, Berlin, London, Paris, Rome etc. calling for a new Europe, a Europe for the people not for the Banks and international capitalism with the European Left parties and the European United Left/Nordic Green Left parliamentary group at Strasburg.
