"Since you are continuing this destructive policy, we warn you that you cannot make us fight against our brothers. We refuse to stand against our parents, our brothers, our children or any citizen who protests and demands a change of policy," said the union, which represents more than two-thirds of Greek policemen.
"We warn you that as legal representatives of Greek policemen, we will issue arrest warrants for a series of legal violations ... such as blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty.
LETS systems allow members to buy goods and services through offering the seller an IOU (which is what a cheque is). The seller then has a credit balance to use to purchase whatever they want from within the system. The buyer has a debit balance and is expected to trade their way out of that debt in time. The total of all the debit balances equals the total of all the credit balances. No interest is charged on debts nor is interest given on credit balances. People are expected to trade back and forth. The 'money' or credit is issued in exactly the right amount to cover the production created within the system. This money is created at the same time as an article or service (wealth) is sold. Therefore it cannot be inflationary.
It is necessary for this credit to be denominated in the nation's currency to make it easy for businesses to incorporate trading in the LETS system without having to run two sets of books. LETS units are treated exactly like ordinary currency for bookkeeping, management accounting and taxation purposes. There's no difference and this is exactly what we want; to expand the nation's money supply, legally! Money, in the form of credit, is legally created by the members of the system when they give IOU's to each other for goods or services. IOU's are entirely legal. IOU's are created, exchanged and cancelled in a multi-member double entry bookkeeping system just the same as happens with a bank. The result is added wealth production and trade for the community without the costs and control imposed by the banks.http://www.winterpatriot.com/node/681

The greek is not protest to that vote
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 ...
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.
This is what we need to do in America, before it doesn't matter, like it doesn't matter there.
