“Syntgama” is a Greek word for “constitution”. Syntagma Square, lies in front of the Greek Parliament.

A 77-year-old Greek man has committed suicide in central Athens in Syntagma Square, shooting himself with a handgun in apparent financial desperation. The man took his life behind a big tree, which concealed him from most eyes. A suicide note has been been found on the old man. Here is the text:

The Tsolakoglou government has annihilated all traces for my survival, which was based on a very dignified pension that I alone paid for 35 years with no help from the state. And since my advanced age does not allow me a way of dynamically reacting (although if a fellow Greek were to grab a Kalashnikov, I would be right behind him), I see no other solution than this dignified end to my life, so I don’t find myself fishing through garbage cans for my sustenance. I believe that young people with no future, will one day take up arms and hang the traitors of this country at Syntagma Square, just like the Italians did to Mussolini in 1945

Georgios Tsolakoglou headed the Greek collaborationist government during the German occupation of Greece in the Second World War.The note has been widely regarded as drawing a parallel between Lucas Papademos’ current collaborationist government and Tsolakoglou’s regime because of the economic crisis in the country.

    I see a chilling parallelism between the Nazi Germany and the one of Angela Merkel. Germany sees other nations as ‘inferiors’, dictate conditions and lifestyles. The new Germany do not use armies or political evangelism but banks and technocrats and unfortunately many EU countries have their own Chamberlain, i.e. a unified policy of appeasement rather than courage and fresh policies. Monti and his high connections to Bilderberg and Trilateral secretive missions do not do the state interest. Napolitano have stretched the constitution beyond any imagination and he is not an economist but a an old respectable man with many and huge mistakes in his political career (see Hungary).
    A new life out of the EURO? why not? Why do not we talk about this opportunity? Let’s go back to a state of true independence and freedom and have a fresh new Parliament.
