    Dear Greek friends,

    When I read this article, i found my self scared!
    How in Earth are we, the portuguese, an example for anyone?

    The political system has been cable to control everything, including the protests! Here, believe it or not, the organized protests have to be authorized by the State.
    Portuguese people are domesticated! Even our “revolution” back in 1974, happened because of the CIA, which convinced some military and Left polititians to organize it. The CIA plan was to Portugal give away the control of the African colonies ( Angola, Guinee, Mozambique ).
    We, live in a Ditactorship masked as a Democracy since 1910!

    Some people, me included, we try to get some news from Greece, since for a long time, there aren’t any on our local media. What is happened to you was clear for me that would happen here and, eventually all European Coutries. Don’t follow the idea that is Germany who’s pulling the strings in order to conquer Europe.
    Germany is the most poweful country in Europe so it’s power has been used to control the “weak”. Eventually, even Germans are going to be bankrupt too.

    The system has no Country behind! The system are the big banks that used their political puppets in every country! These are the real enemies.
    If we don’t identify the problem clearly, these basterds will push the european citizens into a war between themselves.

    Keep fighting the real enemy!
    Greetings from Portugal.

    you can be an example when you organize huge protest rallies, while the Greeks sleep or watch the awful austerity measures news from their couch.

    Please consider that these protests are organized by the Unions, which share the same DNA of the political parties.

    The protesters are the ones who are facing salary cuts and/or possible future unemployement. The other portuguese are sitting in the couch too.
    Until the cuts get to their wallet, they won’t do anything…

    We all, have to break the paradigm! We have to educate others in order to achieve that.
    We must take the rulling of our lives back into our hands. Something like the Iceland people did.

    I’m very surprised to know that a former greek minister was arrested!
    That never happened here!

    I don’t know if this is of your knowledge but we had a similar case of purchasing submarines to the german company FERROSTAL. We bought 2 and the deal is surrounded of many black shades too…Sadly,
    I’m sure that nothing will happen to the involved polititians…
    The mansonry has ties to all levels of portuguese society. They still have all under control…

    here too most protests organized by unions infected by same political parties DNA. therefore protests no often…
