- Greek bank workers will hold a 24-hour strike on July 30 to protest decisions made by the Troika and enforced by the Greek government-of-the-regime about them, without representation

OTOE, the bank union federation stated:

"The government must realize it doesn't have the ethical or political right to show weakness, ignore the historical moment for Greek banks and succumb to the pressures of the creditors,"

The bank workers ask the Greek people to stand in solidarity and support their strike.


- EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras held a PRIVATE meeting in Athens on Friday, to discuss Greece's progress with the terms of the Memorandum.

According to Giorgos Kosmopoulos from StopCartel TV:

Barroso's visit to Athens plays a direct role in the psychological manipulation of the Greek people by imposing fresh directives to the puppet regime. Once again, the official threats state that Greece will not get the next infusion of cash unless the directives of the Memorandum are fulfilled. There will be no renegotiations. Barroso is in Athens to make it clear that there is no other way than to accept the ruthless terms of the Troika.


- In a speech delivered on Friday, Mr. Pantelakis, the President of the Unions, had this to say:

The Troika came disguised as doctors who administered the medicine that was supposed to save Greece, but they were charlatans and their "medicine' is poison. It is killing Greece. If the Troika were public workers, they would be fired from their jobs.


- PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos stated that he will put forth austerity measures with cuts to be spread out over the next four years. He concedes that the measures are very difficult, with huge reductions in pensions, wages and health care.

However, the Troika has stated all along that austerity measures must be imposed within the next two years, as per the terms of the Memorandum.
