JANE BURGERMEISTER REPORT:’A QUARTER OF THE GREEK POPULATION ARE PARTICIPATING IN PROTESTS AGAINST THE EU AND IMF BANKSTER BAILOUT’

A QUARTER OF THE GREEK POPULATION ARE PARTICIPATING IN PROTESTS AGAINST THE EU AND IMF BANKSTER BAILOUT

Greek protestors have said they will surround the parliament in Athens to stop lawmakers from moving forward with a new fiscal austerity package from the EU and IMF and unions have called for a national strike, according to Reuters.

The protests mark the latest escalation in the confrontation between the IMF/EU and ECB and a Vichy government with 25% of the population now participating in demonstations against the bailouts benefitting only American, German and French banks.

“Last month, social participation in all kinds of events and forms of protest more than doubled from 12 to 25 percent, which equates to about 2.2 million citizens,” says Ekathimerini.

25% of the population is now actively calling for an end to the looting of their country by foreign banks with the help of complicit politicians. 25% of the people is a lot. But that number will surely grow.

The national debt is standing at 160% of the GDP one year after the ECB7IMF and EU forced on the country a punitive bank tax that they claimed would solve the debt problem. And the national debt is projected to soar. Greece now has the lowest credit rating in the world. Thank you, IMF, EU and ECB.

The debt will soar – but the economy will continue to shrink if the fiscal austerity measures are implemented. 100s of thousands of people are set to lose their jobs; pensions will be cut yet more savagely; state assets sold to German and American and French companies for a pittance.

The EU/IMF and ECB have destroyed the lives of millions of people, destroyed their jobs, taken their homes, taken their savings. They have told lie after and the now the people of Greece have had enough. They have had enough of the lies surrounding the new round of  fiscal austerity or bank tax being proposed by the IMF and EU and complicit politicians for the benefit of the  American, German and French banks. What remains of the Greek economy will be crushed. The new measures will leaves millions of people destitute and living like serfs in their own country.

The people have had enough of being told they have no choice but to sell the airport in Athens or the airport in Thessaloniki first, to have another 20% reduction in pay or a 20% hike in taxes first so that the American, German and French bankers can make more profits.

The road to recovery for Greece is clear. Iceland is the example. The Icelanders had to storm their parliament to get a referendum on whether to pay the crushing bank debts that their corrupt politicians were happy to force on them in stealth and with lies and threats. The people rejected the plan. Today Iceland is on the road to recovery. Iceland’s GDP is growing, employment is stronger. Iceland had a currency it could devalue, helping it readjust. Greece needs to default, nationalise all banks and reintroduce the Drachma as soon as possible to escape economical and political annihilation.
