Greeks Fight for Alternatives to Austerity Policies Provoking Economic Hardship

Interview with Peter G. Prontzos, professor of political science at Langara College, conducted by Scott Harris

Greece

After weeks of widespread sometimes violent protests, the Greek Parliament passed legislation on June 30 authorizing austerity measures and a privatization plan that were required to secure emergency funding from the European Union to prevent the nation from defaulting on its debt. The majority of demonstrators were peaceful, but a smaller number of protesters fought running street battles with police that shattered windows in storefronts in central Athens.  Story continues

Greek Government Acts as Israeli Proxy in Blocking International Flotilla from Sailing to Gaza

Interview with Robert Naiman, policy director of Just Foreign Policy, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

flotilla

Ten boats and hundreds of solidarity activists committed to non-violence make up the Freedom Flotilla that intended to sail to Gaza in order to break the Israeli sea blockade of the Palestinian territory, imposed since the Islamic Palestinian Party Hamas took over Gaza in 2007. Gaza is home to 1.5 million people who are often described as living in an "open-air prison." But all of the flotilla’s boats have been confined to Greek ports for more than a week, which government officials say is necessary for their passengers' own safety. The captains of both the American and Canadian vessels were arrested after they defied Greek Coast Guard orders not to leave port.  Story continues

anti-immigrant

Since Arizona’s Republican Gov. Jan Brewer signed her state’s anti-immigration legislation, SB1070 into law in April 2010, other states across the nation have imposed similar measures. State governments in Utah, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina and Alabama have used Arizona’s SB 1070 law as a model to craft their own legislation that targets illegal immigrants and allows local police officers to become de facto enforcers of federal immigration laws.  Story continues
