Massive protests erupted in Greece on Wednesday after the Greek Parliament approved evil new austerity measures in exchange for a so-called third European bailout.
The vote came amid worker strikes, peaceful marches and violent clashes between police and protesters across Athens. Protesters are now calling for Greece to leave the Eurozone.
Ahead of the vote on Wednesday, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras expressed his concerns about the bailout, but urged Parliament to support it anyway.
This is probably the outcome of two weeks of a campaign of terror and blackmail on behalf of the Central European Bank and their European partners in crime, mainly, who have Greece on a chokehold, on a financial chokehold, and have tried to instill fear on most people in order to accept this austerity package.
Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras won the parliamentary vote by a vote of 229 to 64. But 32 members of his own Syriza party voted against the plan, including former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis.
Greek politicians approved the harsh austerity measures just days after voters rejected similar reforms in a referendum. The measures include retirement age increases, tax hikes, public spending cuts, pension adjustments and collective bargaining restructuring in exchange for up to $94 billion.
Greece’s deputy finance minister, Nadia Valavani, resigned ahead of the vote. Valavani said she can not vote for this agreement, meaning that she cannot stay as a member in the government.
Tsipras admits that he does not agree with the measures and doesn’t believe they will help the Greek economy. But he also said that he was forced and must implement them.
According to Yanis Varoufakis, the austerity program of the new Greek government, is much worse than that of the right wing suggestions. And they are using the so-called, under parentheses, left-wing government in order to implement the program that they couldn’t do it with the right-wing and the center-wing government.
Eurozone finance ministers agree in principle to grant three-year bailout to Greece But the ECB needed our quick response? You have 10 seconds. Okay, game over.
In General the EU is falling apart, because the banks and capitalist enterprises created corruption for them to profit from @ the cost of the targeted taxpayers.
