Grèce: Open-bar pour la finance

Par Joël Perichaud, secrétaire national du Parti de la démondialisation chargé des relations internationales

7 septembre 2018

Le dernier des «plans d’aide» qui régissent la Grèce depuis 2010 s’est achevé le 20 août. La Grèce retrouverait donc son indépendance financière grâce à l’UE, au capitalisme mondialisé et à la «bonne volonté» de Tsipras.

Après trois «sauvetages» de l’Union européenne (UE) et du Fonds monétaire international (FMI) pour un total de 260 milliards d’euros, la Grèce croule encore sous les dettes (343 milliards d’euros, soit 180% du PIB). Elle devra, bien sur, les rembourser, avec leurs intérêts colossaux. De nouveaux profits en perspective pour les créanciers.

Genocide of the Greek Nation

by Paul Graig Roberts

The political and media coverup of the genocide of the Greek Nation began yesterday (August 20) with European Union and other political statements announcing that the Greek Crisis is over. What they mean is that Greece is over, dead, and done with. It has been exploited to the limit, and the carcass has been thrown to the dogs.

Defeat the main enemy

Press Release 6-2018 National Council of MPL-Programma 101

With the rejection opposed to the birth of the yellow-green government by the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, the serious social and political crisis becomes a devastating institutional crisis. For the first time in the history of the Republic, he has prevented that Parliament elect his government.

There is no doubt that with his veto, he has brutally gone beyond the prerogatives that the Constitution assigns him, so we believe that Parliament can and should initiate the procedure for its removal (impeachment).

Italy ready to leave the euro

14 May 2018

By Dimitris Kazakis

The 5 Star Movement and the Lega have come to an agreement to form a coalition government. If the agreement is confirmed, it will be the first time in the history of the Eurozone than a member state will have a government with a clear popular mandate to leave it.

This at least has been promised by the 5 Star Movement as well as by the Lega headed by the ex-christian democrat Matteo Salvini. The possible coalition has been approved by Silvio Berlusconi himself, who supports Salvini for Prime Minister.

Support the charge for high treason

The pleading for the restoration of a functioning democratic regime and the disengagement of Greece from the debt, which was imposed illegally.

On the 5 of February 2018 the (Greek political party) United People’s Front- E.PA.M., submitted to the Prosecutors of the Supreme Court in Athens a charge-indictment-plead for the restoration of Democracy on the basis of three real facts-assumptions.

Tsipras : magnifique salaud

Par Joël Perichaud, secrétaire national du Parti de la démondialisation chargé des relations internationales.

Pour ceux qui l’ont soutenu longtemps (très et trop), Alexis Tsipras est un boulet. On croit qu’il a touché le fond, mais le bougre a encore de la ressource. Cette fois, le Premier ministre grec (que les médias étiquettent « gauche radicale ») vient d’envoyer un extraordinaire texto de soutien au chef du SPD allemand, Martin Schulz.

Mais avant d’en apprécier la teneur et la saveur, il faut rappeler que Syriza est arrivé au pouvoir (en gagnant les élections de janvier 2015) en promettant au peuple grec de mettre fin à l’austérité tout en précisant que la Grèce resterait dans l’Union européenne et l’euro par tous les moyens. Une contradiction absolue avec sa promesse de jours meilleurs.

MOSCOVICI ADMITS THE GREEK PROGRAM IS A “DEMOCRATIC SCANDAL”

European Commissioner for Monetary and Financial  Affairs Pierre Moscovici described  the Greek program of fiscal adjustment as a ‘democratic scandal’. In an interview to Italian newspaper Corriere dela Sera, Pierre Moscovici replied to a journalist question: “Why do you say that the program for Greece is a “democratic scandal”?

“It is a scandal with regards to democratic procedures, not with regards to the decisions themselves. But to decide in such a way about the fate of people, to impose in detail decisions about pensions, about the labor market… I speak about the basic details of the life in a country that have been decided by an organization behind closed doors, plans that have been worked out by technocrats without the minimum control of a parliament. Without that the media really know what it has been said, without fixed criteria or common guidelines

The interview was given on the sidelines of the Ambrosetti Forum in Cernobbio, Italy, over the weekend.

In his speech at the Forum, Pierre Moscovici criticized among others the way the Eurogroup operates and urged for democracy and transparency in decision-making structures that will help the euro zone.

“But I am convinced that the euro area will only have a truly bright future if we address three burning political issues: the lack of democracy in its decision-making structures; the need to ensure that a future European Monetary Fund is successfully built on democratic principles; and the economic and social divergences creating a dangerous political divide between countries.

The problem is a structural one. We are talking about decisions that are first prepared by officials – in almost complete opacity– and then taken by Ministers behind closed doors, often after very limited discussions,and with no formal rules. Unlike in a normal Council formation, the European Commission does not have the prerogatives in the Eurogroup to promote and advance the general interest of the euro area as a whole. Major decisions are taken on national budgets and reforms and no one is – or feels – accountable for these decisions to the European Parliament.

I would go so far as to say that this flaw in the governance of EMU is a democratic deficit, and sometimes in the past, when we look at Greece, it has been close to a democratic scandal.

As you can gather from what I have already said, I believe that our Economic and Monetary Union requires a quantum leap forward on the institutional front to fix this political vacuum. We cannot go on having the main decision-making forum for the euro area detached from the most basic democratic standards, as enshrined in the Community method.

Reforming the euro area’s governance is also a prerequisite for increased solidarity. Any strengthening of EU powers must be reflected in a more democratic euro area.”

I supposed, Moscovici has been thinking all the time that the Greek adjustment programs was implemented and enforced by aliens. It looks as if  the European Commissioner just stood at the many Eurogroup sessions watching stunned and speechless how the little mean creatures from outer space designed the future of every Greek child, man, woman and senior down to last detail and the imposed their evil plans to the country as a whole.
