LABORATORIO GRECIA – TRAILER

“LABORATORIO GRECIA” è un viaggio che attraversa la Storia greca passata e recente: dalla seconda guerra mondiale, al processo di integrazione europeo, fino all’attuale crisi economico finanziaria.

Un documentario di Storia e di tante storie: vita quotidiana nell’epicentro del neoliberismo applicato. Il fascismo e l’occupazione di ieri, la Resistenza: un paese che deve al proprio popolo la sua Liberazione.

La Guerra Fredda e la dittatura militare, la troika di oggi: la speranza e la rabbia, la disperazione, il dolore, la catarsi di un popolo rassegnato ma combattivo, omologato ma rivoluzionario, indifferente ma generoso e solidale.

Un viaggio condiviso assieme ad intellettuali, politici e gente comune.

Analisi e referti dal laboratorio greco. Cronache del nostro avvenire: in cammino fra le generazioni, per abbandonare l’eterno presente ed inventare un Futuro dalle misure umane.

L’opera è interamente autofinanziata e sarà gratuitamente a disposizione sul web.

Statement-Denunciation of the US intervention in Venezuela

The recognition by the USA of the largely defeated candidate in Venezuela’s Presidential elections, as “interim President” of the country is a blatant interference of the Americans in the internal affairs of an independent, sovereign state. Venezuela is experiencing an unprecedented situation, where the defeated in the elections presidential candidate, declares himself president and the “World President” rushes to recognize him. Close behind the sidekick countries of Latin America (the so-called “Lima group” declare that they recognize the leader of the Opposition as President, and, backed up by the OAS, exert pressure for the “restoration of democratic order” (change of regime, that is) in Venezuela.

Investing in absolute terror with the blessings of the leaders of Christianity

by Dimitris Kazakis

On Christmas day Israel chose to hit once again the area of Damascus. On the day that Christianity celebrates its greatest holiday, the sky of Damascus filled with smoke from explosions and fragments. Israel chose to stamp on everything that is holy and sacred not only to Muslims, but to Christians as well.

Just like Hitler, Israel too violated the agreement with Russia that they were not going to wage any blind attacks on Syrian areas of immediate interest to the Russian armed forces. Russia’s leadership is once again furious, but it seems that they, once again, were caught up in sleep by Israel. (more…)

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.

Two Years After Resounding “No” Vote, Greece Still Says “Yes” To Austerity

Privatization, high taxes and the slashing of cherished public-sector salaries and pensions are the price Greece has paid for accepting the loans that have kept the country in the Eurozone. Its citizens are the ones now paying the price for the costly missteps made by its leaders.

Greece Homeless

A homeless person changes clothes outside a bank in central Athens. Nearly one-in-four Greeks are unemployed and receive no benefits. Poverty rates have surged here since the start of the crisis in late 2009, with nearly 36 percent of the country living in financial distress.

It has become an increasingly common sight on Greek streets, even in formerly prosperous neighborhoods. Elderly—and sometimes not so elderly—individuals rummaging through rubbish bins in search of scraps of food to eat. Beggars are now practically a universal sighting in Athens and other large cities.

More and more young Greeks are migrating abroad by the day, contributing to a “brain drain” that has totaled approximately 500,000 individuals since the onset of the crisis. In my neighborhood in central Athens, several parked cars are filled to the brim with a life’s worth of possessions, packed in boxes by individuals who have likely lost their homes and livelihoods and who now call their automobiles home. Everywhere, abandoned cars and motorcycles rust away on curbsides and sidewalks.
