Person Trampled As Fight Breaks Out At Greek Free Food Handout

Tyler Durden's picture


In yet another day marked by simply unbearable propaganda, about an hour ago an EU official pulled a Lanny Breuer and was quoted as saying that "things are going well" in Greece. Oh are they? Then perhaps the same official can explain why a clip of a scuffle breaking out at a free food handout in Greece, where one man was "trampled and injured", and where a "Reuters photographer was hit on the head with cauliflower heads" has been the most watched item on Greek TV in the past day?

From Reuters:

Hundreds of Greeks scuffled for free vegetables handed out by farmers on Wednesday, leaving one man trampled and injured and prompting an outcry over the growing desperation created by economic crisis.

Startling images of Greeks struggling to seize bags of tomatoes and leeks thrown from a truck dominated Greek television, triggering a bout of soul-searching over the new depths of poverty in the debt-laden country.


One man was treated for injuries after being trampled when he fell to the ground in the commotion. A Reuters photographer at the scene was hit on the head with cauliflower heads.


The farmers said they gave away 50 metric tonnes (55.11 tons) of produce in under two hours




"These images make me angry. Angry for a proud people who have no food to eat, who can't afford to keep warm, who can't make ends meet," said Kostas Barkas, a lawmaker from the leftist Syriza party.

Other lawmakers from across the political spectrum decried the images "of people on the brink of despair" and the sense of "sadness for a proud people who have ended up like this".

"It's difficult. I never imagined that I would end up here," said Panagiota Petropoulos, 65, who struggles to get by on her 530-euro monthly pension while paying 300 euros in rent.

"I can't afford anything, not even at the fruit market. Everything is expensive, prices of everything are going up while our income is going down and there are no jobs."



Well, at least Greece has the Euro, as a result of which the only way to resolve the competitve imbalances is to continue with internal devaluation which means another 25% drop in Greek wages as shown previously all else equal. Which means many more incidents of "trampling" to come.

It will only spread from here.

This is the direct result of central fiat reserve banking "front" institutions literally hijacking the sovereignty of entire nations for the sole benefit of the true owners of the earth; the banksters, who control the volume of fiat, and with a throw of a lever, can induce a firesale of terra firma, and then, with the flick of a pen, buy it all back again, for a literal fiat penny on the dollar (or euro, yen, etc.).

Only those who are clueless about how the real world operates would not understand this or think of it as 'tin foil-y.'

No way only one person got hit in the head with multiple cauliflower heads.  I've never seen a cauliflower fight where only one person gets hit.  But oh gosh since it's a Reuters reporter we better make sure that gets mentioned repeatedly in the international news feed.

Looking carefully at the faces in those images, most of them are probably not 'greeks' IMO. I see Albanian, Indian, Pakistani, Gypsy, etc. 'immigrants' ., you know, the good folk who flood into all socialist welfare states to feed off the utopic largesse of the the slave citizens.

since still 70% of the Greeks want to keep the EUR instead of a Drachma can we assume that the "real greeks" swimming in pools are 70% of the population?

don't think so, and yet there they are, they still want their hard money

how is it that when it comes to europe, so often the comment is they should devalue, but when it comes to the US is they shouldn't devalue, dammit?

"hundreds of Greeks" Took 55 tons of food in 2 hours. Reuters better do a head count. Thats 550 lbs per person.

More likely 20,000 people got 5.5 lbs. I guess they tried to make it sound isolated.

Ahh, the outstretched hands begging for food looking upward to the mastah... the grime handiwork of central planning by the Fed and its auxiliary, the communist-based EU.

“Ha, ha, ha,” smirks the mainline media over “you nut cases and your conspiracies.” Like Bilderberg, the Rothschilds, the Fed, the shadow government, and, in the news today with Geithner’s appointment, the Council on Foreign Relations.

Well, pray, how to explain the trajectory career of the young man Timothy Geithner? Easy: he’s been places, he knows people, he’s willing to listen, he has hair the ladies like, and he tells little fibs fairly well. And, he takes orders like a soldier.

Let’s connect the Geithner insider dots: Protégé of Goldman Sachs’ Bob Rubin, president of the all-powerful NY Federal Reserve Bank, treasurer of the all-powerful U.S. Treasury in the executive branch of the Federal government, and, now, operative in the Council on Foreign Relations.

The CFR goal is to merge the nation with the rest of mankind into a totalitarian world government under a centrally managed economic system – its Orwellian look pictured here.

This no-longer secret power network - operating under unelected Fed control of the US and unelected bureaucratic control of the EU - was detailed by the late Dr. Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University who culled the details first hand when granted exclusive access to its private papers. Wrote Quigley in Tragedy and Hope: It became the Royal Institute of International Affairs in England and the Council on Foreign Relations in America.

From the link:

(note: Food stamp/SNAP/EBT office)" Several people at the DHS office told News 4 it was easy to see how tempers can boil over because clients can sometimes wait for a couple hours.

“If you’re not upset, you’ll be upset leaving up out of there,” said Jenine Nixon. “You straight have to have love in your heart to stand there all day.”

”That’s why people get frustrated because it takes so long, standing in line,” added Angela Montgomery. “Then you have to sit down and still wait, and wait.”

Me: J6P too gets frustrated, too...having to toil and work for 40+ hrs a week. Two hour wait for freebies sounds like a bitch.

We have this thing in humanity for the past 10,000 years, it's called "farming", it's what you do when you get tired of eating food someone else makes.  An acre of productive land costs about the same as a dashboard upgrade package on a new Escalade and you will be surrounded by like-minded people.

Humanity is broader than YOUR PEOPLE and YOUR HISTORY, ok?

blacks don't fucking farm, africans didn't farm...even when HANDED FARMS like in Rhodesia or RSA, they DON'T and WON'T FARM.

Fucking Haiti freed slaves in 1802 and the agro production COLLAPSED immediately...same true in Guadeloupe, Martinique, etc.  Blacks don't DO large agriculture; they barely grow enough to feed themselves on others' farms.  They have no desire, intent, capability, capacity to band together in disciplined groups to engage in collective action like farming.

Stop being a fucking RACIST and projecting yourself onto everyone then getting irate when they FAIL TO BE YOU.

Blacks "learned" farming in the US when they were told to. I know, I know .. tough shit

Why is Africa a shit hole? It was a shit hole before colonialists ventured there to exploit resources and oppress or enslave people. The Arabs were the first to recognize the cheap labor pool. Some tribes have managed to preserve their traditional way of life and keep living off the land. They don't thrive or expand, they just stay put. Unless they're wiped out by a drought or the land gets confiscated, they will be in the same spot doing the same thing long after our "civilizations" have kicked the bucket.

What is a mystery to me at least, is the rage factor and more pronounced animal spirits that can be observed among Blacks regardless of where they were born and how they're raised. So it's not a cultural experience, it has to be genetic. Too bad we are not in a position to objectively look at these issues and engage in some research. All that got stopped a few decades ago.

Potatoes: 17 million calories per acre.
17,000,000/365 = 46,000/day = enough calories for 23 people.
Apples can do 23 million per day.

In short, it can be done, and has been done, and shall be done again.

And this is assuming that the manual laborer doesn't have pigs, chickens, or rabbits on his acreage.

Adding livestock decreases caloric yields, since you want to get technical.  I'm pleased to hear from anyone who'd bother to look, unlike the poster I replied to.

Manual farming will be back, definitely, and it would help solve an awful lot of problems TODAY if we started trying to encourage it, but let's not kid ourselves: bullshit commentary about the behavior of the niggers in the food-stamps office isn't any benefit to ANYONE.

You'd have a bit of trouble farming an acre of potatoes in East St. Louis, but I suppose the broader point is already long gone. 

It's nice to have websites where we can see what the really proud racists are unable to get published in "polite" company.

permaculture, seven layers, a little more observant approach that does not destroy land and water and constantly feeds both is the answer. Nutritional density per acre by diversity whose very existence is self fertilizing and water retaining not mere calories. Common, intuitive, (ironically primitive) approach!

people need to REALLY, SERIOUSLY internalize what's being said by these people to just get a handle around how far apart you are from them in terms of your BASIC concept of the "social contract," what acceptable behavior is, your present- versus future-time orientation, etc.

These are gibs me dat people and when you don't gibs, they get angry then violent.  It's like a beast where you dangle a steak.  Dogs get upset when you do that then they get to biting.  It really is a simple issue that people make complex, trying to find some intellectual "reason" with a lot of convolution as to why THESE people could be THAT angry. 

They are JUST THAT WAY BY NATURE.  You pack cichlids into a tank, you get fights.  They are violent fish.  Too high a population concentration per unit area leads to violence.

I advocate free thinking, be racist, whatever, I give two fucks, but your myopic blaming will not help you, or any who read your posts, in the long run. I believe you can say what you'ld like, as can I. There are lots of ideas which would lead to your conclusions, I concur, even a "whitey has it all", though too, untrue. You said something somewhere I liked, loosely: "the truth does not need your affirmation", indeed. Not at all scared, just thinkin' freely...nigger, nigger, nigger, cracker, kike (special thanks to Michael Jackson and the MSM for introducing that word to me some years ago).

p.s. My stepdad spent 17+ yrs in and out of prison, hard core racist. Had a discussion years later with a black buddy about it, who's brother was incarcerated for a time.

He said something interesting, he said "Well, you can't blame him, 'cause in prison that's all they got." You do some time, Trav?

Don't let Trav get to you.

He's just the ZH neighborhood racist. Every site needs one and as far as I've seen, he's one of the best. He says shit that a lot of people think and haven't the guts to say. 

All in all, he's helpless, if you have thin skin he may offend. 

Often I find myself between giving him a green or a red number.

Either way, he serves a purpose and a break from the usual.

You must know something I don't then, because nobody invited me back.

Someone commented that THIS username was unlocked and so I attempted to log in and it worked.  The other one with 4 7s is still blocked.

I don't really particularly give a fuck about you people, I just speak the truth.

If you want to call that "Racist" that's FINE with me.  I am a "racist-american."  As are ALL WHITE PEOPLE. 

And, no fuckfaces, including Hippocraptic, despite your protestations, YOU TOO wear that label and YOU TOO are gonna get slapped with it.  It's part of the definition of the label.

You Passover Syndrome motherfuckers will learn the hard way; there's NO amount of white blood you can smear on your doorway to make the scourge pass you over.  They will strip, beat, murder you just the same as they did that dumb anti apartheid bitch with the father who was an even bigger fucking punk.

Either way, like it or not, I drive eyeballs...plenty of people have left and few have posts wondering where they are and please come back.  I don't own this place; if the owner wants me gone, fine, shut the name down and i'm history.  I'm not going to slink back in through some other username.  Ban the name and i'm audi.  But nothing is going to stop my speaking the truth and the truth doesn't REQUIRE YOUR CONSENT to exist.

But, I am not on the payroll, not a sockpuppet, not in cahoots with anyone, not an "obvious psyop" as CD said one time ROTFL

I know you are slow as fuck, so let me just go through this ONE MORE TIME.

I ORIGINALLY had this username.  It got locked one day, and I thought I forgot the password.  So I put another username on with 7777 and used that until it was banned.  Got it?

"Someone commented that THIS username was unlocked and so I attempted to log in and it worked."

who would that "someone" be?  who would know if the name was "unlocked" - the one who "locked" it in the first place? and you "attempted" logging in, as if that logging in before might not have proved successful??  "it worked" - but not before??  in between, you just read the threads, and couldn't be bothered to comment??  huh?

you and Robo, magically find "unlocked" accounts and return like messy-ahs to your fans? no miracle, just coincidence.

Either way, like it or not, I drive eyeballs

yes you do.  which was/is the point, I'm sure.

as for "TRUTH" - it's relative, like in-breeding, apparently.

for what it's worth, I don't care one way or the other.  you create a certain piquant ripeness, which is obviously to order/odor.

someone on ZH.  Said that I was back, that my account was no longer locked. 

I get talked about even in my absence.  People checked on it.  I happened to browse the thread.

Nobody would miss you; sorry. 

The truth isn't fucking relative; it stands on its own.  You may not LIKE the truth - I get that.

You think that if you just shout racist enough it'll cloture facts you wish didn't exist.  But you can't stop me.  Nobody can.  Because the truth is my ally and a powerful ally it is.  And ultimately, to beat me you have to face IT.  And it always wins.

I embrace your label.  I am a racist-american, because the word white is so 1900s.  You are one too no matter how much you crawl on your belly to appease non-racists.  They don't like you, they don't want you around, they would slit your throat and steal your shit without any remorse.  Your jewish marxist gay label has no power over me.  I laugh at it and spit on you.

you don't frighten me at all, and all your name-calling is impotent in the long run - what you carry inside yourself is your own burden and will reap its own rewards.

I don't shout "racist" at you, and in fact haven't even engaged in any "conversation" since way before you were "locked" - which, legend has it, wasn't about your fear of the black folks, but a had to do with your opinions on jews that offended a certain poster here who claims much authority - me?  I could care less "Trav".  opinions are like assholes, ubiquitous.

"jewish marxist gay" label?  dude you left off "feminist cunt" - sloppy.

Trav, I get a kick out of your input here, but you are wrong about Africa. Sure, there are some isolated fucked up places, just like in the "developed" world. I have been to Africa many times, and I find it very invigorating, safe, and some of the best and freshest food I have ever had the pleasure to partake.


As far as farming, it goes on everywhere...approximately 60% of the West African population are hard working farmers, 10-20% fisherman.

Like I said, dude, if shit goes sideways there, so will you...and you'd be wise to remember TIA.  It just IS the way it is.

I found Africa to be really cool and by and large a decent place if you stick where shit isn't sideways.  But am I gonna walk through Joburg?  You out of your fuckin mind?

West Africa is the land of Sierra Leone and Liberia...same ethnic stock as Ghana and the places that are presently stable.

And if colonization is permitted, these could be very prosperous places as RSA was (they let blacks run their own areas and they had the highest SOL in Africa), Rhodesia (same), and Belgian Congo.

But, until then, you're on borrowed time; every african nation is one election away from a Mugabe.
