As Debt Crisis Spirals, Greeks Declare: 'Our Lives Don't Belong to the Lenders'

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

With strained negotiations between Greece and its European lenders at a seeming impasse—and the prospect of a Greek exit from the euro zone, or "Grexit," looming large—thousands rallied in central Athens on Wednesday night, in a show of support for the leftist Syriza party and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who has so far resisted the creditors' push for deeper cuts and further austerity.

Riffing off JonnyJames comment in the UK "austerity" thread, i'd agree: We need to stop calling it "austerity."

That sign might do a better job of challenging the propaganda of the looting class if it read "STOP LOOTING - SUPPORT GREECE - CHANGE EUROPE"

Imagine---Saying whatever you like about Greece, imagine a country that has kissed goodbye its corrupt old duopoly of banksters' slaves' parties and tried its best to move into a human future, and a country where people turn out to support their chosen government because they see its courage in representing them, come what may. Which is the "small" country, America or Greece?
