It's Greek Protest Time All Over Again - Follow The Latest From Athens Live

Tyler Durden's picture

The past few days have not been good for Greek GDP, since every single day we have seen thousands of protesters occupy the Athens parliament square, the location of so much more of the same back in 2010, in what has so far been a series of peaceful protests. Today's, however, appears to be the biggest. Luckily, the market is about to close which means no restraining order on Waddell and Reed is necessary. Then again, ES does trades all the night... when liquidity is negligible to begin with. Hmm. Anyway, watch live developments from Athens at the link below.

Don't forget broken bones, buy some healthcare stocks!

Yes good point! Broken windows create demand for glass repair men ,this then, is good for the economy. This Keynes guy really knew his shit.

When will the American sheeple wake up?

centerline's picture

It will take alot to wake people up here.  The media blackout is so complete that most people I know haven't the foggiest idea of what is going on.  And they are so accustom to getting screwed that they really dont ask any questions anymore.  Sad.

The reality is that most ppl benefit from the Ponzi - at least in the short-term. Easy credit, gov jobs, MIC, banks, benefits, etc. Of course, it's all unsustainable. The tipping point will come some day when reality catches up ... But it will be a rude awakening.

Korrath's picture

The tipping point will be the day all the government checks stop going out; then 57% of America is going to alternate between desperation and rage, and scare the complacent bullshit out of the other 43%.  


Maybe, just maybe, something will start to change at that point.

I think a more appropriate question is, do they want to?

american sheeple? greek, spainard and irish sheeple still hold money in their banks, and their time is up!! somebody pleeeeeease explain how massive banks runs havent brought down their fractional card game by now. where is the logic here?

Dabale arroz a la zorra el abad's picture

In Spain we have programmed a (hopefully, though doubtfully) massive bank run for the 30th, in the context of all the ongoing protests. If the one which had Eric Cantona as front man didn't work, I don't think this one will. At least we'll let the banks know they're our targets too.

NotApplicable's picture

Not that I don't support the idea, but if you inflict any damage on the Spanish banks, you'll likely only succeed in giving more leverage to the ECB/IMF cartels and their "unrefusable" offer.

Money doesn't stay in my chequing account long.  I usually withdraw it all the day or day after it goes in, and either stash it or turn it into metal.

When the people get hungry.  That's what it will take.

Thus SNAP.

I saw an absurdly long line at a chick-fila drive through today at lunch time. Just out of curiosity, I went inside and barely anyone was there.


We're so FUKKKED

It's impossible to predict when the working masses decide they've had enough.

When they do, you can be certain that many commentators here will side with the Banker-Gangster parasites against them when shit goes down.

By the looks of it the Greece is headed for elections.  Big mess ahead.

slewie the pi-rat's picture

Looks like Greece needs to put flouride in their water.

Yeah the best $250 investment I have done in a long time was get a RODI machine for the drinking water at home. It is for my saltwater fish tank but also I use it for my drinking water.  Its nice to drink 0 ppm water. Even my sheeple girlfriend thinks the water tastes great. Its kinds funny, the tap water used for the fish tank will KILL the saltwater fish but its supposedly safe for us to drink.

btw, do you know thah ALL potable water in north africa comes from one single water source??  amphetamin fracking?  LOL

Why? Have they all got rotten teeth on top of their other problems?

3 day weekend.  Time for some global market rocking news.  My fearless prediction, the Greek PM will announce in the next few days that he will put the austerity decision to a national referendum.


Markets freak out since they know it will get 10% vote and it will trigger the Iceland path.

Good work, CIA.  

Hope it was profitable for you.  Where were your guns on the other end going?

Crab Cake's picture

Well according to some people.on CDs thread these anarchists should just go home pay their bills, keep quiet, and roll over peaceably; what shite.

NotApplicable's picture

Umm... anarchists do not protest for government handouts. Which part of self-rule leads you to believe this?
