Greece paralysed as farmers ratchet up protests

Thousands of Greek farmers demanding compensation for low commodity prices have threatened to step up a nine-day protest which has paralysed the country, cutting road links with its neighbours and leaving tonnes of fruit and meat rotting in lorries. Using tractors and trailers, the farmers have blockaded around 70 main roads, cutting Athens off from the second city of Thessaloniki in the north and closing border crossings with Bulgaria, Macedonia and Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Across the globe, people are waking up the fact that they are being impoverished to pay fictional debts gamed up using imaginary money.

And they are starting to fight back.
