This video from Greece says about itself:
Highschool students in Oraiokastro city support ActionAid and make noise to ask the world leaders to end hunger. They sing in Greek “although we are small, our voice is strong, we bang our pans and sing away poverty”.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Austerity kills Greek pensioner
Wednesday 04 April 2012
A Greek pensioner killed himself outside parliament in Athens in on Wednesday morning’s rush hour saying government austerity had destroyed his chances of survival.
The man shot himself in the head in Syntagma Square after shouting: “So I won’t leave debts for my children,” according to eyewitnesses.
A hand-written note found on the retired pharmacist’s body read: “The Tsolakoglou government has annihilated all traces for my survival. Since I cannot find justice, I cannot find another means to react besides putting a decent end to my life, before I start searching the rubbish bins for food.”
Many Greeks have dubbed Prime Minister George Papandreou a “Georgis Tsolakoglou” after the general who headed the collaborationist government during WWII.
Shortly after the suicide messages were pinned to the tree under which the man shot himself reading: “It was a murder, not a suicide,” and “Austerity kills.”
