Greece Once Again Stands Up for Human Rights

Note:  For updated information see Patriot in Exigency at the link above.  

 ...with the government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras only two weeks old, the political and financial elite of Europe, from Germany's Angela Merkel and Wolfgang Schäuble to Mario Draghi, head of the European Central Bank (ECB), have rejected all proposals to negotiate Greece's huge foreign debt or relax the austerity conditions imposed as a condition for the bailout of the country's economic system. With a showdown approaching, all eyes are on the struggle in Greece and the hope it holds for the future.

People are coming to see that "austerity" is just another word for "impoverishment."  The people of Greece know this -- also the people of Spain.  Certain powerful financial sources and the government leaders who facilitate them have militated for ever-burgeoning power to control outbreaks of economic justice in certain European nations.   At the article which is hyper-linked below, the writer reports on the backbone found in the new Greek government.

Observers are now wondering whether Greece can be successful in fighting off the talons of the oligarchs which have dug their way into Greek life.   Tsipras and his party, SYRIZA are certainly going to try.

We should support them whole-heartedly.
