Left Coalition Party Leader, Alexis Tsipras


When handed the right to try and form a coalition government in Greece, he told the world that the Greek bailout agreement is “null and void” and should be abandoned.

This sent global markets reeling because he could potentially unleash a series of events that would force Greece to leave the euro zone.

Besides abandoning the bailout, Tsipras said he’d like to nationalize the banks permanently, restore all salaries and pensions to their previous higher levels and bring back collective bargaining rights. Συνέχεια

PM opts for reshuffle, vote of confidence


COMMENT BY FENRIR:

The majority in Greece demand all 300 Members of Parliament to give back what they’ve stolen and then resign, and as you can see, politicians just care about keeping their seat in Parliament and receiving that fat pay check at the end of the month.

And since the first bailout didn’t work, why is the IMF promising a second one? What collateral will they get in return? What is really behind all this bankruptcy sham and who is really going to benefit from it?

The reason Greeks are out in the streets is because they’ve put the pieces of the puzzle together. It’s obnoxious to say Greece is in trouble when so many other countries owe ten times more.  Is it coincidence that so many flocked to help Greece when precious minerals inland and oil was discovered off its shores?
