Little Stories from IMF-run Greece: An armed man holds hostages in the factory where he used to work until he was made redundant a few months ago

A desperate 62-year-old man holds hostage an unknown number of people in a factory in the industrial zone of Komotini, a city in North-East Greece. Earlier he shot and injured the owner of the factory who was there, a driver and a police officer. The man until last September was working in the factory, but the management made him redundant. According to corporate media, he holds hostages at least 2 managers and unknown number of other people.

Today was announced that the unemployment benefit will see a 22% decrease reaching €359 per month.

    The IMF, World Bank, ECB, and the Fed Reserve are criminal organizations who terrorize the world w/ monetary policy. Greece is a crime scene and we need to be more than witnesses. We need to support and help the Greek People. Their struggle is our struggle.
