Athens is burning!

“We don’t want a saved Greece with a bankrupt population” Aleka Papariga Communist party leader.

Reports are emerging from Greece that Athens has at least five buildings in flames one of which is a Eurobank building and a Starbucks.

10 of thousands of people are rioting while the police has run out of tear gas after it was announced that Greece would be getting a whopping 320 billion bail out to be paid straight to the banks after they agreed to monstrous austerity measures including the minimum wage being cut by a whopping 22%.

The final vote is not in yet so I hope this sends a warning to the unelected Greek bankster government and ladies and gentlemen may I remind you that Italy and Portugal are in the same dire straits and if Greece defaults it is the beginning of the end for the entire financial system.
