A video about a man, Ali, who is a legal Pakistani immigrant in Greece. He was stabbed by members of the fascist Golden Dawn group.
Great stuff here…
Instead, this is what people are actually getting…
All of this probably seems very shocking because in these instances it is happening in Europe. However, these stories are totally commonplace in many of the Africans and South American countries that were forced to follow the policies set by the IMF and WB and other major financial institutions.
A member of the European parliament (Daniel Cohn-Bendit) has alleged that Greece will be forced to buy arms in order to get its bailout.
Bear in mind that one condition of the bailout is enormous cuts in services. IF this is also true it is a great indicator of the thought processes at work. Cut services, get debt, buy guns.
Before everything resolves into election chat today I just want to point out that there is a general strike in Greece.
Good luck Greek strikers, I hope you win.
