Greece Says ‘No!’ to Austerity

Democracy Now! gives us an update on the riveting situation in Greece. Amy Goodman breaks it down.

Greek voters have overwhelmingly turned down the terms of an international bailout in a historic rejection of austerity. With a margin of 61 to 39 percent, Greeks voted no to further budget cuts and tax hikes in exchange for a rescue package from European creditors. Polls had indicated a narrow vote, but the “no” side swept districts across the country. ~ Democracy Now!

    1. Hi Catherine, thanks for sharing how you feel. I love that the Greeks voted ‘No’ to austerity. In doing so, they are sticking their necks out for democracy and for all of us in the free world. I hope it works.
