The video is of Greek factions fighting it out in the streets of Athens last week.
The news of the Prime Minister's decision to put the latest EuroZone extortion plan to a vote of the Greek People has sent shock waves through world markets.
"OH NO!!! YOU CAN'T DO THIS!!!!"
Well, of course not. You do not put matters like this to a vote of the people. It's just not done.
Except they did it in Iceland, twice, and the People said a resounding "NO!" to the terms the Banksters set, Iceland defaulted on the debt, and the investors in Britain and the Netherlands are still fuming about it. Iceland seems to be fine. There were no dire repercussions, and for what it's worth, Iceland can still borrow whatever it needs to to stay financially afloat.
Someone has to break the thrall of the Banksters over governments around the world, and if that job falls to the Greeks, then Hurrah!
Of course they may not get to the point of a referendum before... Papandreou's government falls, there's an invasion (led by the British, of course, they know how to do these things), and the Parthenon is sold for scrap lime.
In a sense, it doesn't matter. If the spell is broken, liberation is nigh.
ΖΗΤΩ ΟΙ Έλληνες! (Or something. I used Google Translate, and something tells me that is not how you say "Long live the Greeks!" in Greek.)
