Greek government falls to protesters wanting ‘fresh start’
After months of escalating skirmishes between freedom fighters and security forces, the announcement of a new ‘bailout’ for Greece, alongside the ominous cloud of further oppressive sanctions from the EU regime, pushed hundreds of thousands of Greek citizens to join the movement and march on the Hellenic Parliament.
This time the police barrier guarding the building stood aside and the people took back their country.
Greece’s monetary situation had caused great consternation among its people. While most believed the country’s finances were poorly managed, the majority also were confident that being part of the failed Eurozone was causing unnecessary pain to citizens, such as loss of jobs and ever-increasing taxes among others.
Erosion of financial sovereignty for the sake of French and German banks had finally pushed the silent majority to breaking point as they felt their government could no longer credibly claim to represent its people.
Speaking at a hastily convened press conference earlier this afternoon, Greek ‘interim leader’ Dino Konstantinos assured international allies of his attention to keep Greece running as usual. He said:
“Today the Greek people announce their freedom. We have lived under German control twice now and have been devastated both times as a result.
“The oppressive EU regime has caused great hardship for our people and the previous government was not listening. From today we unilaterally withdraw from the Eurozone and prepare our country for free and fair elections. We hope our traditional allies on the continent will not abandon us.”
The British government immediately came out in support of the new Greek interim government, stating that it hoped it would bring a new period of prosperity for the Greek nation and closure for the Eurozone’s crisis.
France and Germany are yet to comment.
