The Eurozone is at best a mechanism for corporate control and convenience. The powerhouse nations like Germany, Britain and France have disproportionate wealth as compared to other countries such as Italy, Spain and of course Greece.
Instead of lifting up struggling economies it seemed more to be designed to engage in despicable pilfering of the poorer nations through austerity programs. They can call it whatever they want but it is shameless wealth transfer to the benefit of the most financially powerful players who control the ‘Eurozone’ agenda.
Today the Greeks backed their socialist Prime Minister Alexis Tsiras and defied the tainted corporate news rigged polls and scare mongering by delivering a very clear and emphatic NO!
The challenges will continue but the Greeks today voted to face the struggle in their own name and not to be co-opted by the Eurozone bullies.
Tsipras: We have proved democracy cannot be blackmailed
Greece’s prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, is addressing the nation now.
Today, he says, Greece has proved that democracy cannot be blackmailed; Greeks have made a brave choice, and one which will change the debate in Europe.
I understand that voters have not given me a mandate against Europe, but a mandate for a sustainable solution.
And he warns that there are no easy solutions — but a fair solution can be found, if both sides want it.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders expressed support for Greeks who voted against creditors’ calls for austerity measures in exchange for new loans by widely rejecting such demands on Sunday.
“I applaud the people of Greece for saying ‘no’ to more austerity for the poor, the children, the sick and the elderly,” Sanders (I-Vt.) said in a statement on his website.
