Greek pensioner suicide

The tragic death of a 77 year old pensioner who shot himself dead in Syntagma Square opposite the Houses of Parliament in protest over the severe austerity measures imposed on the Greek people by Berlin shows the extend of the human tragedy felt by the people there. This was a man who experienced the nasty CIA inspired military government from 1967 to 1974 and someone who wrongly believed that the unification of Europe would bring the end of wars and hostility, little did he realise that the new Europe was created to serve the needs of the bankers and their friends.

The death of the pensioner sparked another serious of riots in the centre of Athens.
