This article provides some (self-)reflections on the social solidarity movement in Greece and the challenges it faces one year after SYRIZA's government capitulation to the Troika (of creditors) and the signing of a 3rd austerity memorandum. It reads the grassroots solidarity initiatives in the framework of the 'organic crisis" of Western capitalism and as active agents for it and for incubating post-capitalist alternatives. But it also outlines the challenges that they are facing in the new and devastating morally and politically context.
