As events unfold over the next few weeks following today's No victory in Greece there'll be plenty of people watching in Spain. That country's Podemos movement promotes a similar sort of anti-austerity platform to that of Greece's Syrzia. It's hard to imagine today's defiant events in Greece not having a knock on effect in Spain and perhaps Italy also.
I've spent some time this afternoon prowling the web for online European newspapers, stopping to look at their photos of street celebrations across Greece. What struck me is how generational this seems. Unlike the earlier protest marches where the crowds were of all ages, today seems to be a day for young Greeks to rejoice.
Greek youth, after all, had the most to lose. Just coming into adulthood they faced the prospect of either having to emigrate or face a future of perpetual penury. They grew up with five years of punitive austerity, saw what it did to their parents. They understood that a Yes win would be "game over" for their future. They fought and they won even if it victory only means the right to fight again another day.
By contrast it was the wealthiest Greeks who were the most outspoken proponents of the Yes side. The austerity measures the Euro Bank and IMF were using to crush ordinary Greeks really didn't matter to the oligarchs who, in many cases, were the real tax dodgers contributing to the debt crisis. The shipping magnates remain unscathed, still venerated as de facto nobility.
The Spanish go to the polls in a general election some time before 20 December. Podemos has gone up and down in the polls but today's events might give a much needed boost to anti-austerity supporters.
