Greeks in Crisis: Life in a shopping cart and a plastic roof over the head

Posted by in Society

Men and women without job, without income. Men and women without home… A super market cart to carry what is left from once a descent home: some clothes stuffed in bags. Some blankets. A sleeping bag. A camping gas, a pot and a spoon. And a roof of plastic to give shelter from November rain and cold.

 In an open park, somewhere in Greece.

No, we didn’t have such pictures here: in Greece of 2012, the third salvation year of the Troika, the Loan agreements and the austerity package bills.

‘Tourists’ in their own countries, ‘campers’ by the force of law.

Greeks in 2012, Greeks in crisis.
