Brussels bureaufascists rush to protect a key man in the Greek crisis drama


Another conflict is taking place lately between Greek officials and the European Financial Dictatorship (EFD) representatives, concerning a key man who allegedly cooked Greece's statistics back in 2009 and forced Greece to enter the hellish path of Troika (EFD-IMF-ECB) creditors.


The European Union defended Greece’s budget data as concern mounts that a court case against the former head of the Greek statistical agency will reignite market doubts about the credibility of the country’s fiscal numbers.

The European Commission vouched for data submitted by the Hellenic Statistical Authority [Elstat] from 2010 to 2015 and validated by EU statistics office Eurostat. The period coincides with the tenure at the top of the Greek agency of Andreas Georgiou, who faces felony charges in Greece for reporting a 2009 budget deficit that was more than five times the EU limit and that unleashed the euro-area debt crisis.

Data on Greek government debt during the period 2010-2015 have been fully reliable and accurately reported,” European Commissioner Marianne Thyssen, who oversees Eurostat, told reporters on Wednesday in Brussels. “We expect the Greek authorities to actively and publicly challenge the false impression that data were manipulated during the 2010-2015 period.The issue is politically sensitive across Europe because Greece allegedly manipulated its fiscal numbers to qualify for euro entry in 2001 and became dependent in 2010 on international emergency loans, which have flowed for the past six years in return for widespread budget cuts. The aid for Greece is underpinned by the fiscal data of Greece’s statistical agency, also known as Elstat.

Georgiou, who stepped down as Elstat’s chief last year when his term ended, faces some domestic political critics who allege that he inflated Greece’s 2009 deficit figure of 15.6 percent of gross domestic product.

[...]

Thyssen said on Wednesday that the commission, the EU’s executive arm, has sent a letter to the Greek government stressing the importance of preserving the quality of Greek budget statistics. She said false allegations “may create major damage to the credibility of Greek statistics.” The Greek government responded coolly to Thyssen’s remarks, confirming in an e-mailed statement that Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos had received a letter from the commission, saying he was surprised by it and pledging to respect the independent operations of the Greek judiciary.

More and more evidence comes on surface that Greece was artificially trapped into a debt crisis that permitted neoliberal establishment to conduct the most brutal experiment, for the first time in an advanced economic area.

The anxiety of the EFD officials to cover up an important parameter in the Greek crisis case is more than obvious. Their efforts include indirect threats - “... will reignite market doubts about the credibility of the country's fiscal numbers, as well as an attempt to intervene in the work of Greek justice. Apparently, they don't want further research concerning the key man, Andreas Georgiou, because this could bring crucial evidence on how Greece has been transformed into a debt colony.

Therefore, it could spoil efforts to expand further the Greek experiment (already "intruded" in France) to the whole eurozone.

Note that Panagiotis Lafazanis, leader of Popular Unity, the party that came out of SYRIZA's split, expressing its most radical side, stated that the support of the European Commission on Andreas Georgiou, through unacceptable and anti-constitutional intervention, is logical, obvious and expectable. This is because Andreas Georgiou was the IMF official and its man who have been “planted” in Elstat by the Government of George Papandreou, with the consensus of New Democracy too, just to serve the Troika, not the reasonable and legal Greek interests.

He also stated that Andreas Georgiou, through his service in Elstat, delivered Greece to the German EU and IMF, as the scapegoat and memoranda guinea pig for their plans of the general social and labor demolition of Europe.

ΛΑΕ: Άνθρωπος του ΔΝΤ και της Κομισιόν ο Α. Γεωργίου

Άνθρωπο του ΔΝΤ και της Κομισιόν χαρακτήρισε με δηλώσεις του τον Ανδ. Γεωργίου ο γραμματέας της Λαϊκής Ενότητας Παν. Λαφαζάνης. «Eίναι λογικό, αυτονόητο και αναμενόμενο η Κομισιόν, με απαράδεκτη και αντιθεσμική επέμβασή της», να τον στηρίζει.

Στη σχετική δήλωσή του ο γραμματέας της ΛΑΕ υπογράμμισε ότι το Ανδρέας Γεωργίου «“φυτεύτηκε” από την κυβέρνηση του ΓΑΠ, με συναίνεση και της ΝΔ, στην ΕΛΣΤΑΤ, μόνο και μόνο για να υπηρετήσει την τρόικα και όχι τα εύλογα και νόμιμα ελληνικά συμφέροντα».

Τόνισε μάλιστα ότι «ο Ανδρέας Γεωργίου, εκτελώντας διατεταγμένη υπηρεσία στην ΕΛΣΤΑΤ, πρόσφερε στο πιάτο την Ελλάδα στη γερμανική ΕΕ και στο ΔΝΤ ως εξιλαστήριο θύμα και μνημονιακό πειραματόζωο στους σχεδιασμούς τους για τη γενικότερη κοινωνική εργασιακή κατεδάφιση της Ευρώπης».

Ταυτόχρονα όμως υποστήριξε ότι «οι απαράγραπτες ευθύνες του Ανδρέα Γεωργίου καθόλου δεν απαλλάσσουν από τις δικές της τεράστιες ευθύνες την κυβέρνηση Καραμανλή, τις νεοφιλελεύθερες επιλογές και τις λογιστικές αλχημείες της».

Τέλος, επιτέθηκε στη σημερινή κυβέρνηση λέγοντας ότι «τεράστιες είναι και οι ευθύνες της νεομνημονιακής κυβέρνησης ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, η οποία αποδέχτηκε στην πράξη και συνεχίζει να πορεύεται στη στατιστική βάση δεδομένων που διαμόρφωσε ως απόλυτος άρχων ο Ανδρέας Γεωργίου και η οποία υποθήκευσε και συνεχίζει να υποθηκεύει τη χώρα, προσφέροντας διάτρητα άλλοθι στις εθελόδουλες κυβερνήσεις να συνεχίζουν τη μνημονιακή λεηλασία του τόπου».

Με άλλη ανακοίνωσή της η Λαϊκή Ενότητα καταγγέλλει «νέα απαράδεκτη παρέμβαση της Κομισιόν στο έργο της Ελληνικής Δικαιοσύνης» στο ζήτημα της υπόθεσης των εμπειρογνωμόνων του ΤΑΙΠΕΔ που κατηγορούνται για απιστία.

Συγκεκριμένα, ο επίτροπος Π. Μοσκοβισί, απαντώντας σε ερώτηση του ευρωβουλευτή Ν. Χουντή, κάλυψε πλήρως τον Γ. Ντάισελμπλουμ ο οποίος σε επιστολή του εξέφραζε τη δυσαρέσκειά του για την εισαγγελική δίωξη και πίεζε την ελληνική κυβέρνηση για την αναδρομική αμνήστευση 3 ξένων εμπειρογνωμόνων που το ίδιο το Eurogroup είχε διορίσει στο ΤΑΙΠΕΔ.

Noam Chomsky, Oliver Stone sign letter against Brazil's coup

The letter is also signed by the likes of Indian novelist and activist Arundhati Roy, activist and author Naomi Klein and artist Tom Morello.

From Oliver Stone to Noam Chomnsky, highly influential international artists and intellectuals published a letter condemning the impeachment process against suspended Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Thursday.

Other than Stone and Chomsky, the other 22 people who signed the petition include U.S. actor Danny Glover, "Lord of the Rings" star Viggo Mortensen and Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon.

We are concerned about the politically motivated impeachment of the president, which installed an interim unelected government,” the letter reads.

The legal basis for the ongoing impeachment is widely questionable and there is convincing evidence showing that the main drivers of the impeachment campaign are trying to remove the president in order to stop corruption investigations in which they themselves are involved."

The signatories of the petition also criticize the interim Temer government's attack on culture, diversity and human rights.

We regret that the interim government in Brazil has replaced a diverse ministry, headed by the first female president, by a ministry composed of white men, in a country where the majority identify themselves as black or brown."

Writers and activists Tariq Ali, Harry Belafonte, Eve Ensler, Naomi Klein and Arundhati Roy also signed the text as well as novelists John Sayles and Michael Ondaatje.

The signatories also state their belief that any impeachment of Rousseff will spark a negative reaction across Latin America if the process is successful.

Since Brazil is the fifth most populous country in the world, these events are of great importance to all who care about equality and civil rights,” the text reads.

Filmmaker Ken Loach is also one of the signatories, as are the musicians Tom Morello and Brian Eno.

The letter was published in both Portuguese and English.

We stand in solidarity with our fellow artists and all those who fight for democracy and justice in Brazil."

Here is the full list of signatories:

Tariq Ali

Harry Belafonte

Noam Chomsky

Alan Cumming

Frances de la Tour

Deborah Eisenberg

Brian Eno

Νεοφιλελευθερος - Α.Πορτοσάλτε "Χρειαζόμαστε τους Νταβατζήδες"

«Θέλει να κρυφτεί και η χαρά δεν την αφήνει» λέει ο θυμόσοφος λαός. Ο δημοσιογράφος του ΣΚΑΙ, Άρης Πορτοσάλτε, ο οποίος τον τελευταίο καιρό βρίσκεται στο μάτι του κυκλώνα προχώρησε σε μια πρωτοφανή και άνευ προηγουμένου παραδοχή.

Ο δημοσιογράφος του ΣΚΑΙ είπε χωρίς δισταγμό πως η οικονομική δραστηριότητα της χώρας μας χρειάζεται περισσότερο από ποτέ τους «νταβατζήδες» και τα «συμφέροντα».

Παράλληλα, εξαπέλυσε επίθεση στον υπουργό Επικρατείας, Νίκο Παππά για τις τηλεοπτικές άδειες τονίζοντας πως «οι επιχειρήσεις των καναλιών έχουν απαχθεί από τον κ. Παππά, ο οποίος ζητάει λύτρα με αυτή τη διαδικασία που κάνει για να πάρουν πίσω οι επιχειρηματίες την επιχείρησή τους»

Φυσικά, δεν βρήκε μία λέξη να πει για το γεγονός ότι επί 27 χρόνια οι επιχειρήσεις αυτές δεν έχουν πληρώσει ούτε ένα σεντ για τη χρήση δημοσίων συχνοτήτων

Historic agreement: FARC and Colombia govt to announce final deal

FARC to participate in Colombia's 2018 elections

In a landmark moment in Colombia's history, the government of President Juan Manuel Santos and the country's left-wing FARC rebels are set to announce a final peace accord Wednesday in Havana, Cuba, after nearly four years of negotiations between the two sides of the conflict, according to sources close to the peace process.

A deal is imminent to close the negotiations,” a government official told reporters Tuesday, adding that an announcement would likely take place around 7 p.m. local time in Havana. Earlier on Tuesday, FARC leader Timoleon Jimenez, known as Timochenko, wrote on his Twitter account, "We are at the doors of important announcements that bring us close to the final deal." The Twitter account of the government peace negotiation team shared a photo of FARC and government negotiators, standing interspersed together, with the caption, "The day is approaching."

The two sides of the negotiating table have been in the process of reviewing a draft deal in recent days. The document is set to be made public Wednesday afternoon. The historic deal will mark the end of 52 years of armed internal conflict between government forces and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, founded in 1964 on Marxist demands for agrarian reform and rights for rural communities. The conflict is the longest-running civil war in Latin America.

Colombia’s soon-to-demobilize FARC guerilla army will participate in the country’s next general elections in 2018 as part of the final peace agreement with the government that ends a civil war that has raged for 52 years.

In a government press conference Thursday, the day after the much-anticipated announcement of a final peace deal and the end of negotiations in Havana, Cuba, official negotiators stressed that the historic agreement offers an opportunity for a new era of political participation.

According to the final text of the peace agreement, the FARC will be guaranteed five seats in both Colombia’s lower house of Congress and the Senate in the next two election cycles in 2018 and 2022. The movement will still run in the elections as part of the process of securing those seats. Only if the FARC’s new political party falls short of winning the five seats would the remainder of guaranteed representatives be assigned.
