Austerity: Coming to Your Country Soon
- October 20, 2011
The Greeks aren’t ready to lay their heads on the IMF/EU block just yet. The Guardian has described yesterday’s anti-cuts package demo in Athens as ‘one of the biggest in modern times’. I really like the following excellent quote from Giorgos Kamkeris, a municipal employee who took part: ‘The men and women whom we elected to power were not given a mandate to reduce us to poverty.’
That states it pretty clearly. And Greece isn’t the only country where this principle applies.
