We’re Not Glad They Said That – Issue 31

“Greeks are being asked if the government should accept a bailout plan drawn up by its creditors that would restart financial aid in exchange for more austerity and economic reform.

Greece must sign up to economic reforms before it gets debt relief, the International Monetary Fund, one of the country’s main creditors, has said. Christine Lagarde, the head of the fund, said it would “be preferable to see a deliberate move towards reforms” in Greece before debt relief was offered.”

Eds: Wasn’t the Greek PM voted in on a pledge to oppose austerity and economic reforms? Is this not overturning the democratic will of the Greek people? Economic blackmailing has become a global ideology.
