Viva La Revolution In Greece?

THEY WILL not take it lightly. As their beleaguered government tries to negotiate its way out of a €12 billion funding crux, Greeks are rallying again at the threat of a new wave of bailout-inspired austerity.

At teatime last night in Athens, a trickle of protesters stopped the traffic outside the imposing parliament building on Syntagma Square. Less than an hour later they were numbered in their thousands, chanting “thieves, thieves, thieves”.

And even hospital staff were in the act, giving outpatients free walk out pass

Albert Angel, an anaesthetist in his 50s, was distributing leaflets declaring hospital staff won’t charge outpatients a €5 fee today. “We’ll block it. Everybody walks in free in every state hospital tomorrow. If we’re strong enough it’s going to be day-in day-out. Meanwhile we’ll start tomorrow,” he said.

Many of the protesters were elderly, giving some of their younger counterparts pause for thought. “When you see people in their 70s and 80s, 75-year-old people and they are yelling, what do you expect for tomorrow? I am 21. You can’t expect anything,” said Apoltolis Andreou, an economics student.

So we have Spain, Greece, i wonder which euporean union is the next to fall like the bricks? if the euporean union is going to fall by its own creation by the elites, maybe there plans for the Mediterranean union is out of the question

These are very interesting developments, i am sure anyone who has been following the euporean union crisis should enjoy reading this.

Time to learn from the mistakes that have been made in Europe and to learn from the wounds that have been allowed to fester for far too long. It's now amputation time for these countries and we have an administration in the US that wants to lead this nation down the same exact path to failure.

Learn Learn Learn if not from history then from the modern reality of a real time failure!!!
