Θέμα: Έκκληση Ελλήνων ακαδημαϊκών προς τους Ευρωπαίους ηγέτες για την επιτυχή ολοκλήρωση των διαπραγματεύσεων μεταξύ της Ελλάδας και των Ευρωπαίων Εταίρων
Αξιότιμοι Κύριοι,
Οι υπογράφοντες, όλοι Έλληνες πανεπιστημιακοί στην Ελλάδα και στο εξωτερικό, παρακολουθούμε με μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον και ανησυχία τις τρέχουσες εξελίξεις, στο πλαίσιο των διαπραγματεύσεων της νεοεκλεγείσας Ελληνικής Κυβέρνησης, στις τελευταίες συνεδριάσεις του Eurogroup με τους Ευρωπαίους εταίρους της. Η Ελληνική Κυβέρνηση έχει σήμερα την υποστήριξη της μεγάλης πλειοψηφίας του Ελληνικού πληθυσμού και ενεργεί με γνώμονα το συμφέρον και την ευημερία του Ελληνικού λαού. Στόχος της είναι η αναχαίτιση της ανθρωπιστικής καταστροφής στην οποία η χώρα έχει περιέλθει λόγω των αποτυχημένων μέτρων λιτότητας των τελευταίων ετών.
Με την παρούσα επιστολή επιθυμούμε να δηλώσουμε ότι η μονόπλευρη άποψη σχετικά με την Ελληνική οικονομική κρίση και η παντελής έλλειψης ευελιξίας από τον Ομοσπονδιακό Υπουργό Οικονομικών της Γερμανίας, Wolfgang Schäuble και άλλους ευρωπαίους εταίρους, κάνουν τις διαπραγματεύσεις να είναι όχι μόνο δύσκολες, αλλά σχεδόν αδύνατες. Χωρίς να υποτιμούμε τη μεγάλη ανάγκη για διαρθρωτικές μεταρρυθμίσεις στην Ελλάδα, έχουμε καταλάβει ότι ορισμένα από τα αυστηρά μέτρα λιτότητας που επιβάλλονται στον Ελληνικό λαό έκαναν αρκετές τέτοιες μεταρρυθμίσεις αδύνατο να εφαρμοστούν. Αυτό πρέπει να το κατανοήσουν ο Δρ. Schäuble και οι άλλοι Ευρωπαίοι ηγέτες, αντί να επιμένουν στην πλήρη ολοκλήρωση της συμφωνίας, πόσο μάλλον όταν αυτή (η συμφωνία) συμβάλει στη μη εκπλήρωση των στόχων που έχουν τεθεί. Αν αποτύχουν οι διαπραγματεύσεις οι κύριοι αυτοί θα φέρουν το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της ευθύνης, και η Ελλάδα θα υποχρεωθεί να βγει από την Ευρωζώνη. Υπό τις τρέχουσες συνθήκες, αυτό δεν θα είναι μόνο αρνητικό για την Ελλάδα, αλλά θα βλάψει επίσης τα συμφέροντα των λαών της Ευρώπης, των ευρωπαϊκών τραπεζών και τελικά θα εξολοθρεύσει το όραμα και τα ιδεώδη της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης. Εάν είχε επικρατήσει μια παρόμοια στάση κατά τις διαπραγματεύσεις της Γερμανίας με τις συμμαχικές δυνάμεις μετά τον Β Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο, το λεγόμενο Γερμανικό οικονομικό θαύμα δεν θα είχε ποτέ συμβεί.
Υποστηρίζουμε πλήρως τις διαπραγματεύσεις της Ελληνικής Κυβέρνησης που διεξάγονται από τον Δρ. Γιάνη Βαρουφάκη.

Re: An appeal by Greek academics to the European leaders for successful conclusion of the Greek-EU negotiations
Dear Sirs,
The undersigned, all Greek academics in Greece and abroad, follow with great interest and concern the developments, as they unfold, in the negotiations of the newly elected Greek Government, in the last Eurogroup meetings with its European partners. The Greek Government currently has the support of the great majority of the Greek population and is acting having in mind the best interest and the welfare of the Greek people. It aims at halting the humanitarian catastrophe that the country has devolved into with the failed austerity policies of the past years.
With this letter we wish to state that the one sided view about the Greek economic crisis and the total lack of flexibility by Germany’s Federal Finance Minister, Wolfgang Schäuble and other European partners, make the negotiations not just difficult but practically impossible. Without underestimating the great need for structural reforms in Greece, we have understood that some of the strict austerity measures imposed upon the Greek people made several such reforms impossible to implement. Dr Schäuble and other European leaders ought to realize this, rather than insist for full completion of the agreement, even more so as parts of it contribute to not meeting the set goals. They shall bear most of the responsibility if the negotiations fail and as a result Greece is forced to exit from the Eurozone. Under current conditions, this will not only be negative for Greece, it will also damage the interests of the European people, the European banks and ultimately annihilate the scope and ideals of the European Union. Had a similar attitude prevailed in the negotiations of Germany with the allied forces after WWII, the so-called German economic miracle would have never occurred.
We fully support the negotiations of the Greek Government carried out by Dr. Yianis Varoufakis.
Sincerely
