The Greek People Must Be Helped

Translated Tuesday 4 May 2010, by Isabelle Métral and reviewed by Henry Crapo

The Greek people is not responsible for the bankruptcy of its State. And yet the financial markets and the international institutions are set to bleed it dry.

Sign our petition
on line.

The European Central Bank has granted banks massive loans at an interest rate of 1% only and the banks have been lending the money at rates of 4 to 8%. Greece must also be offered loans at rates of 1% at most, under no other conditions than the preservation of social benefits, jobs and public services.

All the peoples of Europe are under the threat of similar austerity plans. The European Union and all the member States must therefore mobilize to preserve the future of a peoples’ Europe.
