Greece has been paralysed by another strike to protest against the latest austerity measures aimed at avoiding financial collapse.
The government has announced further cuts in pensions and more tax rises on top of the first round of cuts last year.
Contract worker Maria Prokopiou said “Right now I haven’t got any money at all. How can I pay? All these measures are very hard. To me, it seems that they are asking for the dead to pay.”
Pensioner Louka Balomenos added “The measures are barbaric, inhumane, the cruellest thing anyone can think of.” http://www.euronews.net/2011/09/23/greece-gripped-by-more-anti-aust...
This is what we need to do in America, before it doesn't matter, like it doesn't matter there.
If Americans were smart ... and their not, they would be buying gas masks after watching this.
LOL it's like the same thing every time I tune in, the people throw shit, the cops throw CS/CN cans and the people gain nothing.
@Poppi Dee- this is NOT what we need to do in America at all, how has it helped the Greeks?? the answer is to prepare your self for hard times, wake other people up and protest peacefully. This system is GOING TO COLLAPSE on it's own you don't need to help it along. We need to be the ones saying we told ya so and providing a solution, if we're not respectable (a bunch of rock trowing idiots) no one will listen and the sheeple will go with the globalist solution.
ATHENS (Dow Jones)--In a final vote late Thursday, Greece's parliament approved legislation enacting new austerity measures the government must take in order to receive fresh aid from international creditors to avoid default.
The measure was approved in principle with 154 votes in favor and 144 votes against, with two lawmakers not casting a vote.
The vote was seen as a crucial test ...
The greek is not protest to that vote
Anti-austerity protesters together with students, left wing groups and anarchists are expected to turn out in strength in the march on Thursday afternoon, Wall Street Journal reported. Around 7,000 policemen are being deployed in Athens amid fears that the demonstration may turn violent. The demonstration marks the anniversary of a bloody 1973 student uprising which helped topple a US backed army dictatorship that had ruled the country since 1967. The demonstration come a day after Greece new interim government won a vote of confidence in a parliament. Greece is in the midst of a debt crisis that is threatening the whole eurozone. The new interim government headed by Lucas Papademos, must ratify a bailout deal in three months to avoid a default and remain in the bloc.
Some 30,000 people took to the streets in Athens in commemoration of the 38th anniversary of the ultra-right junta of the "Black Colonels" on Thursday, police said.
Several demonstrations in Athens poured together and joined one mass peaceful demonstration against Greece's government decisions on austerity measures to receive loans from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.
The protestors were marching toward the U.S. Embassy because the ultra-left organization blames the United States for supporting the "Black Colonels" in their suppressing a university students' uprising on November 17, 1973. During the uprising in 1973, several youth were killed and thousands were injured. http://en.rian.ru/world/20111117/168797405.html
