As stated on the event's NYC Facebook page, "On February 11th, hundreds of thousands will gather in cities across Greece and Europe to demand an end to the EU austerity policy that for years has subjected millions of people to a humanitarian crisis. Following the election of the radical left in January, the new Greek government is set to challenge EU policy at the finance ministers' meeting in Brussels. A strong popular mobilization can make a difference!"
