Right are on top in class struggle, Andersson says
The class struggle has not disappeared and “the Right are on top,” declares Li Andersson, the chairperson of the Left Youth of Finland. “The recent decisions to cut social security are an indication of that,” she argued in an interview with Helsingin Sanomat on Wednesday, suggesting that the eurozone crisis has been used as a pretext “to cut wages, social security and services in Europe”.
Andersson is presently also the reserve member for the Left Alliance in the European Parliament, after winning 47,599 votes in the 2014 European elections. In Helsinki alone, she pulled nearly 15,000 votes, ranking second only to Alexander Stubb of the National Coalition.
