They are sending us back to the 60’s
It’s unbelievable. After four months of negotiations, two Eurogroup decisions and a backstage bargains marathon, the only thing that government managed to take, in exchange for the forthcoming heavy measures of income tax threshold’s reduction and pension cuts, is food rations for 300.000 students and the creation of new nurseries.

As if for this policies the burden of which Church municipalities and dozens of philanthropic organizations had to bear, a «European summit decision» is needed.

This turning back to the food rations’ period, which Alexis Tsipras proudly presented last Friday in the Greek Parliament, reminds the Greece of poverty during the ’50s and the ‘60s.
