  1. The Greek people and government are giving a huge lesson to the world on courage, intelligence and dignity.
    Right now the sociopath “Institutions” are making a financial “blitz” on the Greek people, but like with the Nazi blitz on London I think it will backfire and only strengthen the resolve of the Greek people. Times will be though, but this is the chance to start a new and solve many problems in Greece, this is the opportunity to get an economy that works for the people and not the oligarchs.
    Solidarity to the Greek people! Human resistance against financial terrorism! NO/OXI!

  2. Oxi? This would mean chaos! Look at what is happening today in the middle of tourist season. Even if the tourists decide to come, they will never come back if this chaos continues.

    • Mm, yes, chaos in the world of the Troika, the investment banks, and all the big business crooks who were caught out by Tsipras’s unexpected move. Bravo!
