The dismantling of Greece
In this month’s podcast for Le Monde diplomatique, George Miller speak to Noëlle Burgi about the heavy toll that austerity measures are exacting in her homeland, Greece.
Noëlle, who is a researcher at the Centre Européen de Sociologie et de Sciences Politique (CESSP), Sorbonne University, Paris, describes Athens and Thessaloniki as “dying cities”, in which drug use, mental health problems, domestic violence and prostitution are all on the increase.
Not least of the Greeks’ problems is a feeling of powerlessness as their welfare state becomes hollowed out and their household incomes plummet.
Italian anarchists claim responsibility for German bomb
Dec 8, 2011, 16:53 GMT
Wiesbaden, Germany - An Italian anarchist group, the Federazione Anarchica Informale (FAI), has claimed responsibility for an attempted letter bomb attack on Josef Ackermann, a top banker in Germany, police said Thursday.
The letter of responsibility said two more letter bombs were on their way.
Hesse state police in Wiesbaden, near Frankfurt, said the rolled-up, handwritten piece of paper with the claim showed up during evidence collection by police scientists, but gave no more details.
It was apparently in the same A5-sized envelope as the bomb, which was addressed to the office of Ackermann, 63, the Swiss-born chief executive of Germany's biggest bank, Deutsche Bank.
