FOR GREECE/REACTION ON MR VAROUFAKIS,
FORMER GREEK MINISTER OF FINANCE
The die has been 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
And see underlying my reaction on the excellent article
of the former Greek minister of Finance, mr Varoufakis, who
held op his principles by voting against the EU deal to which
EUROPE'S VINDICTIVE PRIVATIZATION PLAN FOR GREECE
20 JULY 2015
Astrid Essed JUL 21, 2015EU DEAL WITH GREECE/CRIME AGAINST THE GREEK PEOPLE
Mr Varoufakis is right about the toxic privatisation plan, but the EU
deal is dar more attainted, because of the harsh austerity, like
cutting the pensions, 13 percent VAT on elementary supploes [in
the Netherlands it is 6 percent!] against an already impoverished
population, the freezing of collective labour agreements and the violation
of the right to strike. All those measures bringing more misery still to
the Greek population and therefore a crime against the Greek people.
And still more shocking: the brutal violation of the Greek sovreignty by
obliging the Greek government to pass draft legislation on ''relevant''
affairs to the Trojka first. This is reducing Greece to a colony! The EU
deal shows clearly the way Europe always treated third world
countries [and still does], and it's an utter shame! A shame and disgrace
also, that prime minister Tsipras so betrayed OXI and the needs of the
Greek people, that he consented to measures, he had promised to fight!
A Grexit would be better for Greece, because, although the hardship
in the beginning [with the EU deal there is hardship anyway], the econimy
eventually would likely recover and at least Greece would take it''
s fate in it's own hands. Loans of Russia or China would be an alternative.
Greek people, don''t accept these terms and fight austerity. Don't turn
to the neo nazi Golden Dawn, which will take advantage of this situation.
ELEUTHERIA OU THANATOS!
