This morning, in the Vathis square area of central Athens, a 90-year old mother and her son (in his 50s-60s according to mainstream media report) walked up to their building’s rooftop and jumped to their death.
Suicide rates have increased sharply in the country since the arrival of the IMF/EU/ECB in May 2010. Between May 2010 and May 2011 alone, the figure increased by 40%. There are now more than two suicides per day in the country – as opposed to one per day in 2009/10.
A fantastic way to obfuscate reality: the economic restructuring experiment conducted in the Greek territory kills. Economically driven “suicides” are financial murders.
