that's because the police are with them and rightly so.
Not even police resist to psychological pressure ,they cannot beat people endless.

With all fairness, I think soon enough most countries around the world will wake up to the tyranny
Maybe the leaders will find a solution or...they will be the big losers.



If we fight for our freedom
And Democracy..I think.



there will be suffering but for the better and if we don't there will be suffering and then more suffering
They have all means to avoid this,, very difficult to understand what they waiting.

"The leaders" What..? They are the ones allowing the tyranny to go on, for years and so they are a part of it, if not one of the causes of it.

As I said before the Leaders will be the big losers if they don't try to resolve the things as fast as possible,in the favor of people.

in my opinion, even if they do try and to make things right. It's too late for them, as soon as people wake up and see what s# they've been feeding us for years and years, they'll be done for.

Just my opinion ofcourse.

Hard to happen as long as there is China as a depositor.

More then 10 buildings are on fire.


ATHENS, Greece — Riots engulfed central Athens and at least 10 buildings went up in flames in mass protests late Sunday as lawmakers prepared for a historic parliamentary vote on harsh austerity measures demanded to keep the country solvent and within the eurozone. TV footage showed a three-story corner building completely consumed by flames with riot officers looking on from the street, and firefighters trying to douse the blaze. A closed cinema, a bank, a mobile phone dealership, a glassware store and a cafeteria were among the burning buildings, the fire department said. There were no report of people trapped inside. See all 4 photos | Click to enlarge Thanassis Stavrakis, Associated Press Firefighters douse a blaze started in a coffee shop during clashes in Athens, Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012. Protesters and police fought running battles in central Athens Sunday, as Greek lawmakers debated legislation that would introduce severe austerity measures to stave off bankruptcy. From the archive Since May 2010, Greece has survived on a €110 billion ($145 billion) bailout from its European partners and the International Monetary Fund. When that proved insufficient, a new rescue loan package worth a further €130 billion ($171 billion) was decided — combined with a massive bond swap deal that will write off half the country's privately held debt.

Even if all of them resigns hard to resolve a problem with deep roots is like an ancient disease that requires a radical solution.

According to the Chat on livestream stopcartel TV-GR the parliament just voted yes to the austerity measures but I don't speak greek so I can't confirm this.

No, this is the result of poor Greek fiscal governance and economic mismanagement over the last few years, coupled with a stupid decision by the Euro cartel to allow them into the Euro zone.

China has been and continues to trade with Iran, Russia and several other countries in different currencies including gold. they are slowly making their way around the dollar and it appears to be a global trend that will not end well for the US and EU. you see you can't keep printing money and doing nothing to improve your economy and still have the world thinking any other way.

the more they print the more the value goes down, like a house rotting, it can only be propped up for so long before it tumbles.

Some of the austerity measures are:

-Reduce the number of employees from the public sector with a number of 150,000.

-Reduce the average salary with 22 percent.

-Pension cuts.

- Average wage for young people under age 25 cannot exceed 400 Euros.

Number of unemployed exceeds one million
