3. Intervention during the speech of Greek minister
 
The Hague, 22-03-2012
Thursday 22 of March Minister Giannitsis was invited to talk about “Growth after reform” by the Greek embassy and the Clingendael Institute (http://www.clingendael.nl/) in The Hague.
 
Greeks living in the Netherlands made an intervention exposing lies and inaccurate information during his speech. It was made clear that the nature of reforms and measures for the so called growth is nothing more than the same neoliberal recipes that have been applied to many countries around the world.
 
At some point Giannitsis responding to the intervention he admitted that all enforced policies so far have spectacularly failed.
 
He told that the taxation system of Greece is unfair and in favor of the rich.
 
He agreed that the social cost is unbearable.
 
And although he has been a member of the government that had applied those measures he tried to distance himself from the policies of PASOK.
 
The event ended with the comment of the Director EU studies, A. Schout, that the people of all EU countries will soon feel the pain of the same austerity policies.

6. Save Leyton Marshes, London
 
 
There are very few area’s of open green in London that transport you away from the urban concrete jungle. Even fewer areas that are genuinely utilized by everyone. From Old to young. Rich to poor.
 
7. Occupy St.Petersburg declaration
 
OccSPB declaration endorsed by the Assembly last 26-th of November 2011 at Manezhnaya square in Saint-Petersburg.
 
“  Gathered in a show of solidarity to express our indignation about the increasing inequalities in our society, we, as a people, recognize that we are tired of being an instrument in the hands of a few, that in order to protect our rights, we must unite against the corrupt system that does not protect our rights and interests. 
Corporations and artificial monopolies allow a handful of oligarchs ravage our land with impunity to the detriment of the rest of the population and the natural environment. 
This must stop. We rightly demand a truly democratic society in the rational management of natural resources, oriented towards people and their surrounding world.”…..& continues….
8. Solidarity from Poland to Greece
 
Yesterday (25 March) in the Baltic city of Gdynia (famous for the shipyard strikes and the struggles of Solidarnoc in the 70s and 80s), a small group of young people ”disturbed” the ease of Sunday afternoon marching in the central city streets with banners and shouting slogans.
They expressed their solidarity to the Greek people, their opposition to the media propaganda and the model that EU is forcing to all european countries in favor of the banks that soon or later will bring more countries to chaos…
 
The basic slogans were:
 
Turn of the TV and turn on your mind
 
who is next (to fall in crisis)?
 
Today is Greece, tomorrow us!
 
EU saves banks, not people
