6,000 Greek riot cops are busy teaching their citizens to bow down to foreign financial invaders like Frau Merkel in the harshest kinds of ways. The people will not upset the global economic “transformative period” as Hillary Clinton so deftly puts it. The people will accept their slavery, accept crushing new taxes, accept a lower standard of living, accept more austerity measures and accept the wholesale liquidation of the former sovereign state of Greece (the birthplace and death knoll of democracy)
The Greek people will accept it or 6,000 Greek riot cops will beat their own neighbors and fellow countrymen into submission.
Greek riot police fired stun grenades and pepper spray to push back protesters rallying on Tuesday against visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Thousands of Greeks defied a protest ban to march on parliament during the visit, Ms. Merkel’s first since the euro zone debt crisis erupted in Greece three years ago…
Police have banned protests in most of central Athens and readied 6,000 officers, including anti-terrorist units and rooftop snipers, to provide security during the six-hour visit, Ms. Merkel’s first since the euro zone’s crisis first erupted in Greece in late 2009.” The Globe and Mail
Merkel is in Greece to see to it that the Greek politicians don’t stand in the way of the bankers who have decided to impose even more genocidal austerity on the people while looting the Greek nation of everything it owns, everything the people own. This is the religion of neo-liberalism, the ideology of neo-feudalist greed.
“The German leader has several reasons for coming now. She wants to show support for Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, a fellow conservative, as he struggles to impose more cuts on a society fraying at the edges after five years of crippling recession.” The Globe and Mail
