Europe on 'Suicide Watch': Anger and Pain Over the Human Cost of Bogus "Austerity" Plan Lie to Replace Greek Peoples' Stolen Wealth

"Austerity" nothing but code word for making The People pay for massive government ripoffs, theft of national treasuries by dictators, their politician lackeys; there is no "crisis" except for Obama, Merkel, Sarkozy crisis of being busted for destroying nations, stealing wealth for own personal gain

When a retired chemist called Dimitris Christoulas walked into Syntagma Square in central Athens Wednesday morning with his hunting gun and looked over at his nation's parliament building, he is unlikely to have been aware that 1,900 miles to the north-east, the silence that had befallen a small Victorian terrace house in the town of Bedworth, Warwickshire was a symptom of the same malaise.


The face of "austerity" in Greece, a bogus name for a gigantic lie
Mr Christoulas was typical of the newer, poorer subscribers to monetary union for whom the promise of guaranteed affluence and equality across ancient borders with old enemies such as Germany came as a blessing after a lifetime of toil. But the state that claimed his loyalty was no better, he decided, than the one hijacked by the colonels in their coup d'etat in 1967.

"The government has annihilated all traces for my survival," he wrote in a note found at the scene, "which was based on a dignified pension that I alone paid for 35 years, with no help from the state." But what the state had not given, it was now taking away: he chose a dramatic end to "fishing about through rubbish dumps for things to eat".

Over in Bedworth, 19 miles from Birmingham, steel shutters over the windows and doors of the end-terrace where Mark and Helen Mullins ended their lives are the only remaining signs of their decision to choose a less painful way out last November. They were hammered into place once the couple's dead bodies had been removed.

Neighbours had seen no comings and goings from the house for some days when police broke in and found them dead, side by side. Their bitter end soon became a symbol of the harsh consequences of the Coalition's cuts.


Greeks no longer taking any shit from govenment, corporate pig mercenaries; not buying into massive, bogus "austerity" lie that is nothing more than a cover code phrase for massive government, bank theft of personal wealth

Mr Mullins had worked as a PT instructor in the army but had left too soon to qualify for a pension. His new wife Helen, 59, suffered from learning difficulties and according to her husband could neither read nor write, which prevented her from finding work.

Her 12-year-old daughter had been taken into care when local social services judged her incapable of looking after her any more, and the couple were said to have lived in fear of them reaching the same conclusion about Helen, and having her sectioned. They spent a lot of time moving from place to place.


Greek TRAITOR Papandreou, government panicking now that theft of National Treasury becoming public, know they will swing just as Italy's Mussolini did when entire truth, huge scope of their theft exposed

Neither had any work, and the only source of money was Mr Mullins's £57.50 per week jobseeker's allowance. Once a week they walked 12 miles into Coventry for the free vegetable handouts from the Salvation Army, and Mark kept a broth going all week with the proceeds.

The suicide of Dmitiris Christoulas, which triggered a new bout of rioting in the Greek capital, threw a spotlight on the fact which European authorities have gone to considerable lengths to obscure as they struggle to come up with ways to get European economies back on an even keel.


Greeks now starving, homeless on streets, committing suicide
As the British researcher David Stuckler has spelt out in a series of shocking reports in The Lancet, suicide rates have risen right across Europe since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, with strict correlation between the intensity of the crisis and the rise in the statistics.

In 2006 he predicted that the new economic crisis would result in "increased suicides among people younger than 66 years". Two years on the prediction was vindicated: as job losses increased rapidly, to about 37 per cent above the 2007 level in both parts of Europe, "the steady downward turn in suicide rates... reversed at once.

"The 2008 increase was less than 1 per cent in the new member states, but in the old ones it increased by about 7 per cent. In both, suicides increased further in 2009," he reported.

The examples of debt-crisis suicides in Greece and Britain have been replicated across the European Union, with Italy, where the state has imposed effective tax rises after many years of empty threats from Silvio Berlusconi, especially badly hit. The suicide rate for economic reasons has increased by 24.6 per cent between 2008 and 2010, it is reported, while attempted suicides have gone up 20 per cent in the same period.


Greek People's response to government theft of their wealth, bogus "austerity" program to fleece them for every last Euro

In recent cases, a 78-year-old pensioner threw herself from her third-floor balcony in Gela, in the south of Sicily, blaming a pension cut from €800 to €600, while last Thursday a young construction worker from Morocco set himself on fire outside Verona's town hall.


Greek government/corporate/bank mercenary pigs now being identified, targeted for their crimes against Greek Free People

The international media's slowness to notice and draw attention to the suicide epidemic reflects state power to present the crisis and its cure in their preferred fashion, but it has long been obvious to many that you cannot simply downsize a state whose rampant growth has been the obsession of half a century of government policy without consequences.

Mr Stuckler finds that suicide and attempted suicide rise in close conformity with economic hardship, with Greece and Ireland suffering the worst increase over the past three years, and with the loss of dignity and the sense of being the prey of newly empowered state agencies exacerbating the pain in Europe's south.


Euro doomed to fail as legitimate currency; fake "Monopoly money" will forever be associated in history books with greatest ripoff of personal wealth ever

The centre of Bedworth is dominated by the Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouses, built in Tudor style in 1840 by legatees of Chamberlaine, the local rector and squire for more than 50 years who pacified the area after the English Civil War. It is becoming clear that such places have not outlived their function.

Spain's Borrowing Costs Rise Again


The interest rate on traded 10-year Spanish debt rose as high as 5.8 per cent yesterday, indicating growing nervousness among investors about the health of southern European economies.


Worldwide violence only just beginning; criminal regimes will fall
It followed a disappointing auction of Spanish bonds on Wednesday, when the centre-right government of Mariano Rajoy, pictured, sold only €2.6bn of its debt, having targeted a maximum of €3.5bn.


Interest rates on 10-year Italian debt also rose, hitting 5.5 per cent at one stage as some employers complained that Prime Minister Mario Monti's labour reforms were being watered down to appease unions. There was also bad news from Germany, where industrial output fell 1.3 per cent in February.

"We Can't Verify" CIA-Owned, Operated [US]Al-Jazzeera Fabricates Stories on Syria : Former AJ Producer

"Now everyone is a journalist" [US]Al Jazeera completely compromised, controlled by U.S. government, CIA; join the never-ending "Stream" of bullshit passing for news where everybody is everything, wrong is right, war is peace, evil is good and Obama is God while being entertained by fraud "journalists," fake "musicians" playing the toothbrush and a U.S. propaganda circus ran by yet more Arab "royal" clowns in the Qatari version of "American Idol"

PRESS TV

A former employee of the Arab satellite network Al-Jazeera says the news channel fabricates stories on the unrest in Syria.


CIA owned [US]Al Jazeera now has ZERO credibility
"The facts are totally different with the reports in the media (Al Jazeera), extremely different," Reuters quoted Moussa Ahmed, a former producer for Al-Jazeera's Beirut Bureau, as saying on Wednesday.

Ahmed said the channel concealed many facts, with editors' opinions becoming the so-called facts, adding, “I'm so sorry that we concealed facts for so long a time.”

 


Ahmed is one of the five Al-Jazeera employees in Lebanon who resigned from the TV station over the channel's biased stand on Syria in the middle of March. 


[US]Al Jazeera now joins other "mainstream media" U.S. propagandists running interference for, advancing CIA Syrian takeover agenda
 
Al-Jazeera is also accused of blowing the opposition movement in Syria out of proportion and covering up the truth in the country.

It is widely believed that the Emir of Qatar has a direct influence on the nature of programs broadcast in Al-Jazeera.

In addition, the Qatari-based network's biased policy towards Bahrain and Libya has caused dispute among the news network staff.

Saudi Mouse Beginning to Roar : Saudi Protesters Demand Release of Political Prisoners

The continuing beginning of the end for Saudi "royals"

PRESS TV
04/06/2012

Saudi anti-government demonstrators have taken to the streets across the oil-rich Eastern Province to demand the release of political prisoners.


Saudis will now most likely face invasion from Bahrain
The protests were held in Qatif and several nearby towns, including Awamiyah, on Friday.

Activists say over 30,000 people are locked up in Saudi jails solely because of their demands for reform.

Last October, the US-based Human Rights Watch called on Saudi authorities to stop the ''arbitrary arrests of peaceful protesters, relatives of wanted persons, and human rights activists'' in Eastern Province.

The arrests in Saudi Arabia have been carried out despite the fact that the authoritarian kingdom is a party to the Arab Charter on Human Rights, Article 14 of which prohibits arbitrary detention.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have also criticized the Al Saud regime for silencing dissent through intimidation and the violation of the basic rights of citizens.

Saudi Arabia's east has been the scene of anti-government protests since February 2011, with demonstrators demanding rights reforms, freedom of expression and the release of political prisoners. 



Families of Bahraini democracy protesters have sworn revenge on Saudi mercenaries, Al Saud "royal" family

 Several demonstrators have been killed and dozens of activists have been arrested since the beginning of the protests in the region.

Riyadh has intensified its crackdown on anti-government protesters since the beginning of 2012.
