You have doubtlessly been informed that Greece is bankrupt and had to recourse to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). You might be wondering who are those responsible for Greece’s bankruptcy. If your country was bankrupt, wouldn’t you ask for those responsible to be brought to justice? I guess so. This is what the Greeks ask for as well. However, in Greece there are none responsible for the bankruptcy. Nobody has been charged and nobody has been brought to justice. Nobody! Is this hard to believe? Read the newspapers of your country, search on the web and you will see that Greece’s bankruptcy is an orphan. Those that made the country bankrupt and moved their assets to foreign banks are still free and still govern Greece.
Greece is in effect under a political and financial oligarchy which controls the media and the justice system. Essentially, Greece is under a dictatorship. Some tens of families rule the place for decades. Greece, the birthplace of Democracy, is under a modern dictatorship.
Now, the European Union and the International Monetary Fund gave new loans to Greece. These funds will not help the Greek people but the governing dictators, the financial oligarchy and the owners of the media outlets. Yes, it might seem strange, but the loans from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund are being managed by the same people who led Greece into bankruptcy.
During the military dictatorship in Greece (1967 – 1974) there were international pleas for citizens not to visit Greece, in order to suffocate the colonels. This is what I am asking of you now.
Don’t visit Greece. Don’t visit Greece until this dictatorship falls. Help us to liberate Greece.
We don’t need money. First of all, we need democracy. I ask that you help Greece to become a democratic country again.
Don’t visit Greece! Liberate us!
