Greece becomes the most crucial battlefield

by system failure

The financial war is peaking in Greece. The global financial mafia through its representatives (IMF, ECB, European Commission) refused to increase liquidity to the Greek banks. Normally this would not be a problem, but their media inside and outside Greece have started the propaganda of fear to send Greeks to the ATMs.

The decision was taken after the Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, announced a referendum to let the Greek people decide whether they will accept the proposals by the institutions. In reality, the proposals refer to further brutal measures in an already economically devastated country. Capital controls is now a warning, a sudden hit against Greeks in order to surrender. Therefore, the financial mafia in essence blackmails directly the Greeks. Therefore, in reality, they are just asking Greeks if they want a sudden, or, a slow death.

It is certain that the Greek government knew who are dealing with. Tsipras had to make certain moves to expose the institutions and their real intentions. The first move was to retreat, presenting equal measures to the creditors. However, through these measures Tsipras administration tried to transfer the weights to the big businesses in order to relief the usual victims: workers and pensioners.

As it is well known that the IMF only serves the big capital interests, Tsipras probably knew the reaction. IMF turned 180 degrees going back to the usual cruel positions. However, previously, many officials of the institutions claimed that the Greek proposal was a good start to achieve a deal with the Greek side. Through this way, especially IMF was totally exposed.

A second move was done yesterday, as Tsipras requested - through a statement that was made publicly to the Greek people - a short extension of liquidity from all the official EU institutions until the day of the referendum. In case of a negative response, they will be exposed as well. In the statement, Tsipras has spoken about a blackmail by the eurogroup which actually kills the Democracy in Greece. Using this certain rhetoric Tsipras puts the official European institutions in front of their responsibilities. It's a smart and substantial tactic.

The most significant move was the announcement of the referendum. Tsipras surprised creditors and set the referendum day in quite short time. He left little time to the creditors to plan a "silent coup" against the referendum. They decided only restricted liquidity and capital controls.

However, the biggest achievement of the Greek government through this move, was to mark a clear victory against the technocratic fascism and bring back the real Democracy in Europe. Now, the Greek people have to confront history. Without a revolution, but only through a simple democratic process, they have a big opportunity to trigger a total change in the course of Europe, away from the new Feudalism.

Prior to the Greek national elections of 25th January, this blog already mentioned that “The mobilization by the global financial mafia this time will be more intense, as its representatives know that a potential Leftist government in Greece who may strongly resist against the austerity policies, could trigger an 'uncontrolled' domino rise of the Leftist powers in Europe, who will fight against the neoliberal agenda. Make no mistake, the war will be hard. But there is no alternative. Either the European people will choose to fight determined and united, or, will be surrendered to the plutocrats who will bring the new Dark Ages. The 'Battle of Greece' will be decisive ...” (fa.ev/europe-get-ready-for-war)

Soon, all the European people will have to confront history too.

    IMF ECB are neo nazis should be tried for genocide.

    The way to solve greek problem is simple. IMF, ECB wants greek to take hair cut like cut in pensions. Let Greek take 100% cut and lenders like IMF, ECB also tale 100% cut. Now greek is debt free and also no obligations to pensioners. Based on the revenues greek can do social spending , perhaps to old level to all people. The issue is solved. there is no money to pay lenders. But money is there for pensions and salaries. Let all take a cut 100% for a month. Lenders are away and closed. Greek can do what is required peacefully.

Vijay Prashad on BRICS & Why Global South Cooperation Is Key to Dismantling Unjust World Order

Democracy Now!   As a two-day BRICS summit gets underway in South Africa, we speak with author and analyst Vijay Prashad about whether the bloc — which comprises Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — can meaningfully challenge U.S. and Western domination in world affairs by building an alternative forum for countries of the Global South. BRICS countries represent 40% of the world's population and a quarter of the world's economy, and the group is now considering a possible expansion to more than 20 other countries. " BRICS is an instrument to push forward their political views, which they feel are not taken seriously, " says Prashad, director of the Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research. Prashad explains the history of BRICS and its New Development Bank and responds to criticism that BRICS falsely portrays itself as an anti-imperialist project. The BRICS countries " are not a socialist bloc, " says Prashad, but they " don't want to

The author of letters to social media companies demanding the financial punishment of Russell Brand is a British lawmaker implicated in London’s war on Covid-19 and Ukraine dissenters. Her husband was a commander in the Army’s psy-ops division. by Kit Klarenberg   Part 1   Allegations of sexual impropriety and abuse by comedian and podcaster Russell Brand by the British media prompted YouTube to demonetize the star’s popular channel on September 20.

Niger raises Uranium price from €0.80/kg to €200/kg!

The New Africa Channel   Niger Raises Uranium Price  From €0.80/kg to €200/kg - In a groundbreaking development that signals a seismic shift in the global resource market, Niger, a prominent player in the uranium industry, has reportedly taken a bold step towards securing fair compensation for its invaluable natural resource, uranium. Multiple reports suggest that Niger has substantially increased the price of its uranium, skyrocketing it from a mere €0.80 per kilogram to €200 per kilogram.    This remarkable decision underscores a burgeoning determination among African nations to break free from historical imbalances and demand equitable remuneration for their vital contributions to the global economy.  According to the World Nuclear Association (WNA), Niger is the world's seventh-largest uranium producer. The radioactive metal is the most widely used fuel for nuclear energy. It is also utilised in cancer treatment, naval propulsion, and nuclear weapons.   Uranium prices increased

Julian Assange and the end of American Democracy

The Real News Network   The US government has hounded Julian Assange since WikiLeaks first revealed the extent of US war crimes in 2010. In the process of persecuting Assange, the federal government has used every tool at its disposal and even pushed beyond the boundaries that supposedly restrict state power in defense of civil liberties. One of the most insidious tactics is the use of the Espionage Act, which had not been used for against whistleblowers and journalists for almost a century before Assange's case.    Prison is always a political tool, and in the case of whistleblowers like Julian Assange, the use of incarceration to suppress, discourage, and silence dissent is self-evident. Since being imprisoned, Assange has married and even started a family—but has been kept apart from his wife and children.   Lawyer and human rights defender Stella Assange, spouse of Julian Assange, joins Chris Hedges for a look at the vast and vicious campaign by the US to silence Julian Assange
