All the People of the World Become Greeks on February 18th

“We are all Greeks” day on Saturday, February 18, was a world-wide day of protest in support of the Greek people, who are going through harsh times at the moment.

The protest took place at 14:00 outside the Greek embassies and consulates in various cities of Europe and Australia, while a similar protest will be held Saturday night in NY by the Occupy New York movement.

Users of social networks that spread the solidarity message wrote on their posts that the Greek people need world support and solidarity to continue their fight against austerity and the tyranny of money.

The new package of EU/IMF austerity measures passed by the Greek coalition government will be a further strike to the already crippling average Greek family that is struggling to make ends meet with only some 500 per month salaries, while rent prices, food, oil and bills are ever on the rise.

Paris, London, Rome and Edinburgh united their supportive voices and expressed their concern for what may follow after the experimental case of Greece. The protesters around Europe denounced the anti-popular policies of Western society and demanded the restoration of democratic values.

One of the basic slogans asked Greeks to forgive the Europeans’ failed policies that did not manage to pull the country out of the crisis despite the sacrifices the Greek people have withstood.

The “We are all Greeks” initiative was triggered in France, when ordinary people asked to obtain Greek citizenship and claimed to “be Greeks too”.
