Austerity measures ignite Athens – Athens Video

On Monday the Greek Parliament voted to approve another round of austerity measures. Now the Eurozone finance ministers have started to formulate a bailout plan for the financially distort Greek economy. In the approval 15000 public sector jobs were cut and a decrease on the national minimum wage was passed. This led to thousands of Greeks hitting the streets in protest to the Parliament’s decision.

    a country doesn’t ”end” when it defaults. we have been through wars, we have been (and propably going) through a dictatorship, our people have starved so many times. we ‘ve been through so much that we won’t disappear after an ECONOMICAL crisis.
    the people are more valuable that money
    if you really believe such things,you support ideas that threaten our and your freedom, and i’m sorry for that.

    Who REALLY runs our world? search “israel Did 911 All Proof in the World” and search “ZionCrimeFactory” for proof.
    Reporting on the death of supremacist Zionist leader David Wolffsohn, the September 17, 1914,edition of THE NEW YORK TIMES tells us that during his closing address at the Zionist Congress at the Hague n 1907 Wolffsohn “pleaded for greater unity among the Jews and said that eventually they must conquer the world.”

    Obama, Newt, Santorum & Romney want to send Americans to war & death for Israel.
    However none of their kids will fight for Israel.

    Israel is plotting for war with Iran as Jewish bankers loot Europe.

    Only the truth can stop the wars and make the world the paradise it can be. It is the one thing all have in common, and that will never change. Google “Truth Contest” and click “The Present” to open it. What it says will blow your mind.

    I’d love to be on the fence myself. There are maps with the locations on them and I know that we have military members that have confirmed specific details to detention centers that shouldn’t exist. With the NDAA passing and the new Expatriation Act being voted on, this country is screaming for help. I do appreciate your conversation though. You’re not at all as offensive as some people around here ROFL. Have a great day!

    interesting. I just hear conflicting reports so i settled for the middle. I dont discredit you or anyone else who has a first hand account, i just would like to see more pictures or reports. Seems like there isnt anything which overwhelmingly verifies this rumor.

  10. TheEndeavoringFamily says:

    Nothing to be on the fence about here. I have confirmed one in our area and the sign for the “staging area” was up when we moved here in May. It’s what woke me up. Kid you not, I said “what’s a Fema camp staging area” and looked it up… almost miss the ignorance but at least I know what we’re potentially up against.

    im on the fence about FEMA camps. there supposedly was one in oregon where i live. I went to check it out. no fences, no guards, no prisons, no train tracks. just a few small government buildings. The potential is there, i just dont think their doing it like everyone is saying.

    You can’t expect the Greeks to have the same testicular fortitude as the posterity of the Vikings.

    Islamic Fundamentalist = A person who wants to see Islam rule the world as a state/religious entity.

    Islamic Fundamentalist = A person who believe that Shariah (Sharia) Islam’s laws should be the laws for all of mankind.
    ———–

    Some Islamic Fundamentalists want to see Islam spread and Shariah law imposed “peacefully” (by population and the ballot and new constitutions) Some Islamic Fundamentalists want to see Islam/Shariah law imposed forcibly on people.
