As the austerians demand yet more draconian cuts as a condition for further financial assistance to a Greece reeling from the Wall Street bankster-created Great recession, a call for action comes from Stavros P. Psycharis, president of the Lambrakis Press Group, publisher of the influential newspaper To Vima:
It is clear that we are faced with the most serious financial crisis that Greece has ever experienced. For the past seven years the country cannot move forward aside from within the economic paths set by our foreign “rulers”. The United Europe is losing respect for Man and its political leaders are seemingly turning into second-rate cash lenders.
Against this situation, Greece must resist, fight and win. It is unacceptable to be blackmailed by a mob of “technocrats” who propose and impose measures like the village doctor hands out aspirin!
But what is done, is done. It is time to refuse the humiliation of the poor relative being humiliated by his own family.
One quick example. Greece cannot implement labor laws other than what is provided in the European acquis.
It is time for Greece to demonstrate that it has the power to ask and receive fair treatment from the people of Europe family. Otherwise the country’s political leadership must be united in facing the crisis that has brought poverty to Greece for the past seven years.
