    There is also a nice report from german first television about the weapon deals between Greece and Germany:

    Greece has the biggest army in europe in comparison to its population and there is no reason for it because Greece is part of the european defense block. Greece spends billion of euros for weapons and the troyka doesnt comment this in its strategy papers. But the troyka comments very detailed how to save money by cutting loans and income, closing public services and so on.

    Both GSEE and ADEDY are collaborating with the Troika and the Greek State with their absolute failure to do anything more than token strikes and demonstrations, but with the abolition of collective bargaining, the mockery made of the minimum wage and the dismantling of the public sector, they are ensuring their own destruction…
    The European bourgeoisie are only saying that Greece can ‘return to growth’ in order to prop up the bond markets, they know this is a lie. Emigration for young Greek workers is a dead end, there is no growth anywhere except perhaps China…
    A decade more of austerity? Pauperisation in perpetuity? No. They would rather buy tanks and missiles than care fo,r or feed, the elderly -in other words starve your parents and grandparents to maintain the profitability of Siemens…

    A huge greek shipping conference will take place on Wednesday February 29 at the Hilton Athens 46 Vassilissis Sofias Avenue. Every major greek ship owner and senior executives from major banks (Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, and many others will be at this conference. The greek ship owners make millions of dollars a year and don’t pay any taxes in greece. The ships are all registered outside greece. This is an injustice to the people of Greece!!

    i think here should be everyday sumthang from Greece or related like how the murderous cops in Valencia attacked pupils, man, that happened as a sign to Greek and youth everywhere.
    Details about small cities are apppreciated, esp for Germoney where all revolutionary power comes from little towns

    to find a revolutionary perspective everyone should read the Borribbles again.

    “Solidarity” wrote that there had been demonstrations in support of the Greek People in Frankfurt, Germany. There have been demonstrations in support of the Greek people in other cities across Europe, also in a couple of cities in the US, it just doesn’t get reported. We should be encouraging this unity and solidarity across borders, this is not a national problem, it is an international attack on the working class.

    so, uh, now that some public sector employees are being required to work for free, or even PAY to keep their jobs, are there any protests planned? more occupations? workplace occupations?

    oh, no? oh well.

    GREECE BANKRUPT? Why don’t see it this way [from a forum, interesting, frorward]

    All of us in this world were working and had a living until recently. Suddenly the money is gone. Where has it gone? Well, we, the people, make money by contributing something to society. That makes the real money circuit. Others make money with money, they don’t contribute anything to our society but only suck real money out of your purse. Money is not a commodity but is to make barter easier. When we put 100 dollars of our real money into a bank, the bank is allowed to lend the real-money makers [us, workers] ten times the amount you put in, or 1000 dollars. You think you get money from them but it is credit only, it has no value at all. Immediately they start cashing in, say 7% real money for it from you, or 70 dollars a year while you get 2% for your 100 dollars in their bank that make their business possible, so you get 2 dollars. Thus they make 35 times more than you do and on money that does not even exist. With their profit [interest], being your real money from labor, they buy up the world and return your real money to your real money circuit to start the game all over and over again. That way they become richer and richer with fake money without contributing anything to society. They eventually finance wars to keep their business going. When they overdo this, people are going short on their real money from labor and that is what causes the trouble in Greece. But don’t bother. They are not the only ones. This is happening all over the world now so stay put. Always realize that there are two money circuits: a real one and a fake one which is 10 times or more bigger and which is what the rich live on and keep us in line. Oh, there is a third circuit within the real money circuit from work: the black money circuit. But that is real money without paying tax for our society. In some countries it is 40% or more. Eliminate it and the country goes bankrupt. Is everything clear now? To stop them from draining you, simply put as little money in the bank as is necessary for your business [barter] and don’t borrow their fake money. Better is not to borrow at all. Muslims and **** know better. They are not allowed to ask interest [real money from labor] for a loan to their own people however gentiles are outlawed as far as I know. Let’s learn from them or walk the line to slavery. We may wish Greece all the best. Nice people, nice country, nice climate, nice history and they did well before they stepped into the Euro. Good luck Greece.

    ‘Doing it peacefully’ means being mercilessly beaten, gassed, herded like cattle and pushed into an ever deepening spiral of poverty. Those in power murder with fountain pens, keystrokes and hired thugs. Enough of masochistic passivity. To the streets -Destroy that which destroys You!
