  1. I missed Greek striking misery. It’s been too long! :))

      Indeed, a symbolic misery of reformists, real strikes have no schedule and only end when governments and all institutions of state and repression resign; no state, no debts, no money, no system: power to the people!
      As a starter it’s smart enough if Nicosia declares war to Greece and Greece gets a part of Great Cyprus: all debts are gone!
