Good morning…wake up! #Syntagma sq #Athens #TODAY

Friends of Loukanikos!

Last Sunday an arson attack took place on his wife’s carof  Horst Reichenbach (Head of the Task Force for Greece).

The arsonists burned the BMW of Daymar Roth-Behrendt (MEP), which was parked in front of their home.

Also threw red paint at the house of  the couple Reichenbach – Roth-Behrendt.

Responsibility undertaken by leftist extremists who call themselves “THE FRIENDS OF LOUKANIKOS”

With such acts threaten the ECB, the European Commission and the IMF.

Loukaniko” in greek means sausage but i am sure you know the famous riot dog of Athens.

The name was taken from the famous autonomous dog , Loukanikos , who was named the 2011 Person of the Year.

Is always in all the demonstrations and riots taking place in downtown Athens.

Is always on the side of the demonstrators and always against the police.

He has become a symbol of the struggles of the Greek people against the austerity measures.

See characteristic photos of him and ADMIRE  the fighting spirit , dedication and courage in the struggle …

And in some … occupy moments.

We love that dog!

2600 years ago…

In ancient Athens, 600 years before Christ was born, there was a huge crisis. There was great poverty among the people while the rich became more powerful. Social unrest began to flare. Then the power was given to Solon (594p.Ch.). The origin was aristocratic and his occupation was a merchant. He was given absolute power to bring social peace in Athens.

He created a law (Sesachthea) that was designed to relieve the poor without compromising the interests of the rich.

Enabled the middle class to participate in administration of the city.

Limit the arbitrariness of the nobles – the rich.

Adjust the debts of heavily indebted citizens and not  deleted.

He did not make land redistribution, but with Sesachthea, relieved the poor from the burden of debt.

Change the value of the currency, thereby reducing the debt by 27%.

Set a maximum mortgage of property and wealth.

Once completed the legislative work, he left Athens.

He thought that if he stayed in Athens, he would be under pressure to change its laws, succumbing to the demands of his fellow citizens. He said that” Laws that change will not be respected.”

This is what happens in Greece (not now).

2600 years ago.

(Sesachthea means I get the weights.)

To Coca-Cola Hellas:What kind of shit are we drinking?

Not long ago Greek consumers complained about the taste and odor that had packs ofCoca-Cola.

The Common Food Inspection Agency and the General Laboratory of Greece examined the packing.

They found that in over 800,000 cans Coca-Cola and Sprite, was 2,4 DCP dichlorophenol (C6H4CI2O) used in the manufacture of herbicides. The toxicity of 2,4 DCP is large and can cause kidney failure, liver damage and even death.

After the General Laboratory of Greece examined the packing THEN the samples were tested by itself Coca-Cola and the results were identical. On the packaging and Coca-Cola and Sprite was 2,4 DCP.

Removed all cans Coca-Cola and Sprite, except 100,000, that were already consumed.

A Common Food Inspection Agency called to destroy 150 tons of sugar from Bulgariaand Belgium, the company uses in the refreshments.

The Coca-Cola is talking about great economic loss and  UNWILLINGLY  destroyed 150 tonnes of sugar.

The metaretriever2 asking the Coca-Cola Hellas: DO YOU HAVE ANY CONTROL MECHANISMS OF THE QUALITY OF YOUR PRODUCTS ???

If tomorrow falls “by mistake”  hydrogen cyanide in the product are we going to learn about it after a consumer complaint?!

In May 2012, the State of California spoke of carcinogenic substances in the ingredients of Coca-Cola and asked to change the ingredients used in the manufacture of Coca-Cola.

We will be watching you…

P.S. For the closure of your units in Greece and transported to Bulgaria and Skopje we will bother you again …

 

Three heroes… Three victims…

Yesterday, 6/4/2012, Krioneri, near Athens, a car stopped on the railway lines.

The train is approaching …

Near the railway lines worked three Pakistanis (illegal immigrants).

Without even thinking at all, they ran to help.

At that moment the train came and killed the elderly couple who were in the car and two of the three , immigrants.  The third immigrant was seriously injured.

A touching, tragic, human story.

Who ran to help the elderly couple?

Who lost his life helping his fellow human?

People – illegal immigrants – which in recent years have been targeted by  law enforcement authorities and a large part of Greek society.

In Greece, many believe that the main problem of the country are immigrants. We blame the immigrants for losing our  jobs , that we  do not have money , that they are the cause of the rising of  communicable diseases.

A few months ago the Minister of citizens” Protection” wanted to build a fence on the border between Greece and Turkey. Today the Minister talks about 30 camps for immigrants with fence around them and without allowing  (to the immigrants) going out of them.  A party leader talks about mines on the Greek borders. That means Greeks against immigrants…

People without hope, perspective, food, leaving their country to settle in Europe. First stop is Greece. Today are trapped in Greece, over 1,000,000 refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Somalia. It’s easy to get to Greece (has the largest border in the EU and one of the five largest of the world) but difficult to leave for  the rest of Europe. The Treaty Segen leaves no other way.(f an immigrant arrived in Italy from Greece , the Italians will return him to Greece rather than the country of  his origin.)

Immigrants in Greece are working with very small salary, the most difficult jobs and no social insurance. 

In previous years, where Greece had a high growth rate (3% – 5% per year) and there were jobs , everyone was happy.

Most projects for the Olympic Games, major public works and agricultural, owe their existence to the cheap labor of immigrants.

Today that jobs are lost and there are no projects in the country ,  immigrants are being persecuted.

Among immigrants , there are some who are criminals or forced to have committed crimes.

There are many Greek based on that  and requires  the expulsion of all immigrants from the country.

NOBODY IS BAD BECAUSE HE WAS BORN IN AFGHANISTAN OR SOMALIA AND GOOD BECAUSE HE WAS BORN IN EUROPE.

The story that I mentioned at the beginning of the text is to show that people have sensitivities , altruism , respect and selflessness, regardless of country of origin.

The hunted , the defenseless , the” targeted”  from the Greek society gave their lives to save their  hunters , their persecutors , those who feel them as inferiors.

WITHOUT ANYTHING IN RETURN.

They paid their self-sacrifice. The two with their lives and a third with serious injuries.

I  hope some  got the message and  before chasing  again  immigrants  , think the above story.

I hope not to increase the wave of racism that has gone   dangerously  high the last few years  in Greece.

I hope that is not going to be voted  by the Greeks , the far-right (Neonazi) party.

I suggest the three immigrants, to be honored by the Academy of Athens.

In the memory of Dimitris Christoulia.Athens-GR.

The man who shot himself in Athens, showed us the value of the exemplary withdrawal.

He chose to die because the status quo does not let him live and continue to dream.

He chose to die for reminding to mankind the force of the Act – the power of one.

If the power of one is able to stop the world … does the strength of all of us has the ability to write her own story?

In memory of Dimitris Christoulia.

Στη μνήμη του Δημήτρη…

Ο άνθρωπος που αυτοπυροβολήθηκε στην Αθήνα , μας έδειξε την αξία της παραδειγματικής αποχώρησης.

Προτίμησε να πεθάνει γιατί δεν τον άφηνε το κατεστημένο να ζήσει και να συνεχίζει να ονειρεύτεται.

Προτίμησε να πεθάνει για θυμίσει στην ανθρωπότητα τη δύναμη της πράξης – την δύναμη του ενός.

Αν η δύναμη του ενός έχει τη δυνατότητα να σταματήσει τον κόσμο… μήπως η δύναμη όλων μας έχει την δυνατότητα να γράψει τη δικιά της ιστορία;

Στη μνήμη του Δημήτρη Χριστούλια.

PM of Greece:Crazy Clown Time…

Yesterday, a retired chemist shot himself in front of the Greek Parliament. In the text , written by him , before shotting himself  , he made well known to all of us  that he prefers to end his life rather than looking at the garbage bins for food.

Great turmoil caused by the suicide of our fellow man.

Greek Prime Minister for almost 5 months, is a gentleman named Lucas Papademos. He was governor of the Bank of Greece in the late ’90s and early next century (the period when Greece accused that entered the euro area with misleading information – he was the one that cooked the items as central bank governor). Then became vice president of the ECB By 2010. For over 20 years and was familiar and the controler of  the economic situation in Greece and the EU.  From November 2011 became Prime Minister.  He was preffered by NO ONE , he was voted by NO Greeks , he  did NOT propose any program to be judged by the Greek people. In the name of consensus and application of the second memorandum , he moved into the prime minister’s office.

This  ”Mr.”  does not believe the restructuring of debt of Greece – as a good banker – butnonetheless became prime minister to implement the cut debt.

Having performed his duty and tied up Greece , continued the work of GeorgePapandreou , cutting salaries and pensions , putting taxes , abolishing labor rights and killing Greeks.

Once , this gentleman , he learned that one more Greek killed himself , he made  this statement:

   “It’s tragic a fellow human being to put an end to his life. In these difficult times for our society we must all-state and citizens – to support the people next to us in distress “

It is unbelievable that , a “man” ,  “prime minister”  of a country reacts in such a way , when he has lost one more fellow human being.

Let’s get down to one by one on the phrases of the text:

1) “It’s a tragedy our fellow man to give end to his life”

A general observation.

He gives us the impression that something happened – so general and vague – without even he has been touched by the fact. Distances himself completely from the event and do not recognize any responsibility for the financial and personal deadlock in the government of the country and to himself.  The tragedy of the situation is a rhetorical matter of act  that is designed to emphasize that all these happen every day and everywhere.  He starts to say that whatever happened , happened , and not to deal with such things because there are worse.

2) “… In these difficult times for our society …”

He continues its equivocation.

These hard times have not been random. It is the result of incorrect decisions and policies.

Tough times… so … .  Times are not getting tough on their own willing. Times getting tough by situations. Who created these situations?

He says NO word about the political and legal responsibilities of  his own government and its predecessors.

Came hard times then …

Accidentally found ourselves in this situation …

To whom however came hard times?

For society, he says.

Who is society?

Society is the poor , the worker , the pensioner , the banker , the manufacturers , the fraudsters , the rich.

I do not see tough times came for the whole society …

3) “… We all-state and citizens – …”

You suggest that we should all …

Who all?

Even those who, deliberately brought us to this situation?

Even you yourself and your government?

SO EVERYBODY…

State and citizens:  An unreliable state (see the amendments passed these days)  that all he has done until today is to condemn a people to unreliability , cronyism , individualism , poverty , death.  Citizens who have been separated into those that are damaged by the crisis and those who are not touched by the crisis (as shown in the polls).

4) “… To support the people next to us in distress.”

So you  propose to support  the people next to us.

So i inform you that  THE  SOCIAL  TISSUE  HAS  BEEN  DISSOLVED  COMPLETELY.

When every one of us has to face enormous burdens , that you and your predecessors continuously loading  us, how to find the courage and strength to stand by his neighbor?

WE ARE ALL DESPAIR.

What you mean is that : We will support each other and you will be attacking us?

I saw nothing, nor heard, from you , to commiserate the victim’s family.
 I saw nowhere you to be  touched by the human side of drama.
You did not understand what happened.
So my answer to you is that I DO NOT RECOGNIZE YOU (nor as man, nor as an axiom).
I DO EXPERIENCE HOWEVER THE ATROCITY OF  THOSE YOU HAVE CREATED AND  STILL DO.
You managed  and the similar to you , today Greece , resembles the video clip ”Crazy Clown Time”  of  David Lynch , meaning  as a “visual rape of the senses” artistically structured.
