News From alexinathens
« on: March 30, 2013, 12:15:30 PM »
Greeks are really NOT afraid of the upcoming bank haircut. If the haircut (levy) was on the debt, everybody would celebrate.

Virtually body has any money in the bank (taxes+high cost of living). Anybody that had money, they kept in Cyprus and got f@cked twice (bond haircut in 2009 PSI/Cyprus).
Awaiting suicide toll for month March...

REAL unemployment ages 18-25 at 70%. Employed youth get 3-400 euros monthly.
Ages 25-65 unemployment at 40-45%.
Underemployment is a major issue also...

People actively boycotting german products, and returning to mediterranean diet. Olives feta riding horses and donkeys intead of BMWs

Suspiciously quiet. Politicians UNABLE to walk in the street
GAP aka G.Papandreou labeled a traitor and wanted 4 crimes against the greek people.
Polls and gallups cooked and crooked, not reflecting reality...

This is amazing, get real information from a person in the country.  We need more people to do this. This is how the real news spreads and we need more people like alexinathens to do the same.  This information is startling, I didn't realize the unemployment was so high, suicides were a problem and that politicians are basically in hiding. Great stuff, keep it coming  :-*

How are the people surviving with so much unemployment and so much underemployment it must be very tough and hard.  Are people joining together to help each other?

In greek we have a word  αλληλεγγυον. Look it up at our site pamet.gr but in essense we've set up a (small) network of outlets that facilitates the food consumers buy greek food products directly from the producers at half the cost and double the quality. No GMOs or anything imported. We deal the same food we feed our children. Back to basic values...

Thanks for letting us all know what's going on in your country. It is great to hear news other than the regular media. I wish you and your family all the best. Everyone from around the world needs to stick together and work together.

Things are clearly incredibly difficult in Greece, and are worse that the media have portrayed.  Hope the situation improves...but what is going on there could still be a sign of things to come. Cant help feeling that the Brussels elite are willing to let others pay virtually any price in their vain bid to cling to some vague and unworkable ideal of a United States of Europe.

As things become more difficult, life becomes crystal clear. It's do or die. I'll try to feed u guys original out of reach matterial audio and other. This is about survival and solidarity (αλληλεγγύη in my language and a bit more). I'm a noone that's fluent in a few languages and I can run searches in multilpe languages/characters and make some relative sense of the results.
Here's a good site for beginners. defencenet.gr These guys understand anything from Tajiki Turkish Hebrew Armenian Kurdish and Arabic, with studies at West Point and Moskow  And here's a great clip that happened during prime time live... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iu4KKC2G55M It;s all staged, by the way. The guy in black is a Golden Dawn MP (ultra right nationalists) and the ladiy in white is a militant communist (gun carrying lesbian) and the lady in orange is a MP of SYRIZA (radical left).

If u think that's interesting u should also check out the other vids that appear after the first clip. The fist vid could easily be used as a case study for poli sci students. Politics 101 The lady in orange is the original culprint. She actually caused the guy to throw the water (not an offence OK?) and then the lady in white initiated physical contact before hell broke loose.
At the end of the day, the guy said that he could not afford to be subdued by a xommunist dyke live and got away with it...
At the end of the next 48 hours ALL patries were conducting secret polls to ascertain how much they gained or lost. Degenerative parliamentary demovracy. The lady in white was a broadcaster for the national TV, an MP, a EMP (europarliament), and a MP agin and again...
It's pathetic
