GREEK PEOPLE/REACTION ON LEONIDAS VATIKIOTIS
The die has cast.
Prime minister Tsipras, the Syriza leader, who would
end EU austerity meaures or at least would diminish
the effect, has capitulated shamelessly and made way for
the most extreme and hardest Trojka/EU deal with Greece ever.
Further cutting down of pensions
13 percent VAT on elementary provisions [food,
energy etc] extremely high, comparing with 6 percent VAT on elementary
provisions in a relative wealthy country like the Netherlands
Freezing the collective labour agreements and violating
the right on strike
AND WORSE, VIOLATING THE GREEK SOVEREIGNTY:
Every ''relevant'' draft legislation must be seen by the Trojka, before
going to parliament.
How is it possible any government would agree with a measure,
reducing its country to a colony!
There is no justification for this and it makes him betray the
ideal of OXI and his own election promises!
and the EU deal of the Devil

Leonidas Vatikiokis [on his website]

AGAINST BARBARIC EU MEASURES!

ELEUTHERIA OU THANATOS!
REACTION ON ARTICLE OF MR LEONIDAS VATIKIOTIS
THIRD MEMORANDUM/WORSE THAN THE PREVIOUS ONES
EU DEAL WITH GREECE/CAPITULATION OF
TSIPRAS/BETRAYAL OF OXI
''“When you write about Tsipras, make sure that you say he is a traitor. All the other politicians, the ones that came before him – we knew what they were like. We really thought he was different.”
Dear Mr Vatikiotis,
I fully agree with your article about the worst EU deal with Greece ever,
because not only of the draconic austerity measures, but the shocking
imperialism, reducing Greece to a colony.
The measures are barbaric:
VAT increase for elementary supplies with 13 percent [in the
relative wealthy Netherlands it is only 6 percent, for comparison],
reducing of pensions, which were already the half of their former worth,
freezing of collective workers agreements [a disaster for a country with
such low salaries already], a violation of the right to strike
Violation of national sovereignty because al ''relevant'' draft legislation
must be presented to the Trojka first, before going to parliament.
How could any Greek government, let alone the socalled ''progressive''
Syriza government, accept this?
It's BETRAYAL, no more or less, to OXI, the poor Greek people,
the ''ideals'' of Syriza and most and for all, the election promises Tsipras
made to the Greek people.
He can't lament with fairy tales of ''no alternative'' now.
He knew right from the start, he was dealing with EU gangsters without
any conscience or care for the humanitarian suffering of the
But he was foolish enough to obsessively hold on to his mantra,
that he didn't want to leave the EU.
If you are not respected, why join this imperialistic club of
Look at the way they treat the Third World [by the Greek example,
many Europeans now see, how they work, together with IMF], the way
they treat refugees!
If he had considered the Grexit as a serious option, he would
have investigated the full implications on that and prepare the
Greek population for it.
There would have been hard years [faillissement of the banks,
inflation through a new national coin, lower wages etc], but at the
end, economy would probably recover and the possibility
of Russian and Chinese loans [which would be a blow to EU/USA]
was very real.
At least, Greece would have taken its fate in its own hands.
Humiliation after humiliation and more and more social disaster.
GREEK PEOPLE/RESIST THIS DEAL OF THE DEVIL
FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
ELEUTHERIA OU THANATOS
