  1. Ok … That is a step too far! … sorry to hear of the teacher … another victim of International greed! … National strike … everyone out … and use the time off to find an alternative life style … and take things that you need … no cash! … but not from each other … from companies and those who have plenty! … lets see how that goes?

    • Everyone here is too ”busy” with elections…My friend you and me MUST accept the fact that Greeks are STUPID or they do not want to wake up.
      And then everybody is wondering why ”some” of us burning towns…
      I can assure you for one thing and only…i WILL vote….IN THE FUCKING STREETS.

      • Just watch and keep us informed … That’s your job …. Just watch and share! … much love my friend!
