A comment of Birgit Meinhard-Schiebel, directly from Athens:
Greece in the crisis –
Greek green friends are on the European Green Party Council and reported about a lot of dangerous cuts in social, ecological and economical life.
Pension should cutted between 10-20 percent, employers can send the employees home or call them into work as they like and legal rights will fall…
but life is going on, people on the street, in restaurants, running marathon on sunday…
crisis is a curious phenomen. people try to do as usual.
but greens discuss for exampel new models for agricultur for their own food and resilience to handle the existence and life in crisis.
