In Syntagma Square....

The Tsolakoglou [a reference to a wartime Nazi collaborationist in Greece] government has literally wiped out my ability to survive, based on a decent pension which I paid for myself over 35 years with no help from the state.

If one Greek had taken a Kalashnikov into his hands, I might have followed him and done the same but because I am of an age that makes it impossible for me to take strong action on my own, I can find no other solution than to put an end to my life before I start sifting through garbage cans for my food.

I believe that young people with no future will one day take up and hang this country’s traitors in arms in Syntagma Square just as the Italians hanged Mussolini in 1945.

The suicide note of 77-year-old Dimitris Christoulas, who shot himself in Syntagma Square, in protest against the austerity policies hitting Greece.

Via Molly Crabs and everyone else. Not a lot to add, really.

ETA: The funeral of Dimitris Christoulas erupted into an anti-austerity rally, the Telegraph reports.


  1. Thank you for posting this shocking piece of news.

  2. it really worths adding Christoula's daughter's speech in her father's political funeral this morning. A sheer manifest...

  3. Shocking... Cannot say I'm suprised, only a matter of time before helplessness sets in. Meanwhile, we sit in armchairs and complain about helping these people...

    1. Hold on, who's being helped?

    2. Theoretically, Greece was helped by a "bailout", we know this to be nonsense. My comment was directed at the populace who read about this, and criticise the basic, "on the surface" "help". You took that slightly out of context.

  4. It's just the beginning of an inevitable global economy collapse,where a lot of people will suffer and the 1% will suck all the money from the people and continue their process of ultimate selfishness. How can they live like this and be happy knowing that the whole world is suffering on their behalf.

  5. It's coming to this and it doesn't seem to hit Merkozy at all. They really don't give a shit...

  6. Sick and the disabled here have decided to die rather then beg, politicians i suspect will say ah another one less.

  7. Thanks Penny Red. I'm surprised to read this. keep posting such stories.

  15. No doubt it is a certain crazy that brings a person as loved as Aaron was loved (and he was surrounded in NY by people who loved him) to do what Aaron did. It angers me that he did what he did. But if we’re going to learn from this, we can’t let slide what brought him here. -- İts very good about
