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.
