15 juli – Grekland

Läsningen av de förslag, eller direktiv, som eurogruppen kommer med till Grekland är absolut häpnadsväckande och skrämmande. Det handlar om en ursinnig attack, besinningslös krigföring mot Grekland. Detta får dom inte ta emot! Varoufakis, den fd finansministern ger sina kommentarer – The Euro-Summit ‘Agreement’ on Greece – annotated by Yanis Varoufakis

Kan inte Tsipras och Syriza ta ett ordentligt snack med Ellen Brown (och med Michael Hudson)!? Ellen Brown kommer med flera förslag i en ny artikel (liksom i sin förra), det hade gått att ordna detta hur lätt som helst om viljan hade funnits hos eurogruppen. Men viljan finns helt tydligt inte, deras herrar finansoligarkerna har gett stränga order om att gå till fullt angrepp. Då måste man ha en motstrategi –

Grexit or Jubilee? How Greek Debt Can Be Annulled

The crushing Greek debt could be canceled the way it was made – by sleight of hand. But saving the Greek people and their economy is evidently not in the game plan of the Eurocrats.

The IMF estimates that Greece needs debt relief of €60 billion – a mere one month of the ECB’s quantitative easing program. The ECB could solve Greece’s problem with a few computer keystrokes.

If Greece switches to drachmas, the funding possibilities are even greater. It could generate the money for a national dividend, guaranteed employment for all, expanded social services, and widespread investment in infrastructure, clean energy, and local business. Freed from its Eurocrat oppressors, Greece could model for the world what can be achieved by a sovereign country using publicly-owned banks and publicly-issued currency for the benefit of its own economy and its own people.

ATHENS NOW: AN EXPLOSIVE SITUATION!
MASS RALLY THIS EVENING IN FRONT OF THE PARLIAMENT!
THE MAJORITY OF SYRIZA’S CENTRAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS REJECT THE AGREEMENT!

1. The discussion in Parliament on the agreement has started and the vote is expected for late this evening. Tsipras has declared in his interview to the public broadcast yesterday that the agreement was bad, that he ”didn’t believe in it” but, basically that there was no other solution. He also said that he was not going to jump out of the boat.

2. A strike against the agreement was announced today by the confederation of civil servants ADEDY. This is the first test on the social front. The participation in the strike seems rather low but the real peak is this evening’s gathering in front of the Parliament, when the vote will happen.

3. An impressive wave of statements are issued by Syriza’s local and regional branches rejecting the agreement and calling the leadership to withdraw it even at the last moment. These statements are vote by overwhelming majorities and usually near-unanimously. A text rejecting the agreement has already been signed by an absolute majority of central committee members. In the last meeting of the political secretariat of the party only a small minority were in favour of the agreement and for supporting the government. Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos who reported on the agreement said that it wasn’t politically sustainable. The secretary of the party, Tassos Koronakis, supported by others, asked for the government to resign and a ”special task” government to be constituted as a transition to snap elections in November, at the time of elections in Spain. The Left Platform disagreed with this proposal explaining that this would mean that Syriza MPs would condone a for months technocratic cabinet applying austerity and called the government to withdraw the agreement immediately.

4. The Left Platform annnounced that it will not vote for the agreement today. In an internal meeting, impressively attended yesterday and widely reported by the media, Panagiotis Lafazanis (minister and key spokesperson of the Left Platform) categorically rejected the agreement, explained that Grexit was the only solution and that the government should prepare it. The Left Platform will hold a public meeting next Monday in Athens to present its alternative proposal and called for the Grexit. The trade-union sector of the party, overwhelmingly controlled by the Left Platform, is playing a leading role in organizing protests against the agreement.

Tydligen har inte Syriza haft någon plan B, mycket märkligt. Michael Chiotinis från Grekland sa i veckans rapport hos Webster Tarpley att de inte haft det, för då skulle de inte så lätt ha kunnat komma till makten! Oligarker i Grekland som kontrollerar medierna ville inte att Grekland skulle lämna euron. Och en kommentator på fd finansministern Varoufakis blogg skrev så här för ett år sen, ett halvår innan Syriza kom till makten –

>The big problem of Alexis Tsipras is that he is a romantic pro-European.

>He isn’t thinking about a Plan B and Plan C just in case our European “friends” will play hardball.

>That’s why I think he is even dangerous for Greece because he lacks a sense of Realpolitik.

Och Varoufakis själv sa också att de inte haft seriösa planer på utträde ur euron i intervjun som jag länkade till i inlägget 13 juli nedan, och som nu finns översatt till svenska på DN.

Och detta ska vi inte glömma –

Riksbanken varnar för Greklandseffekter: ”Vårt banksystem är känsligt”

Vice riksbankschefen anser att Greklandskrisen är ”djupt oroande” och varnar för att Sverige underskattar effekterna krisen kan föra med sig eftersom det det svenska finansiella systemet är känsligt för störningar.
