- StopCartel TV will interrupt its regular schedule this week. Due to the public holiday, there will be no Live Broadcast on Wednesday 15 August, 2012.


- The closure of small and medium-size businesses, along with mergers, pensions, and allowance cuts, are the unpleasant issues of the day in Greece.

With daily drastic changes abound in Greek society, one thing remains constant and predictable. The state-controlled media can be counted on to regurgitate the daily meme in support of the traitors located in Parliament.

TV's all over Greece blare out the daily farce being played out on the stage of the Greek Parliament. Like obedient puppets, "reporters' gaze into a camera and tell the people that the government-of-the-regime is struggling to figure out where to cut (steal) the next 11.5 -- billion from the Greek people.

Meanwhile, back in reality land where awareness prevails, despite the ongoing propaganda efforts of the mass media, many Greek people understand that the current occupants of Parliament are nothing but the Troika's clerks and no longer make decisions.

The government-of-the-regime sold out Greece's sovereignty to foreign interests for their own personal profit. Now, the traitors are paid to follow and carry out orders from those foreign interests, at the expense of the Greek people.

Within the next 20 days, before the Troika returns to Greece, all new austerity measures must be accounted for.

It is highly probable that publicly-controlled companies will face mergers with private companies. This is expected to contribute to a rise in the unemployment rate.

As it is, new austerity measures will put 40,000 public servants "on reserve" (meaning a 60% cut in salary preparatory to being fired in a year). Pensioners will also experience more huge cuts. All of the new austerity measures will be imposed within the next four years.

The mass media continue to deceive the Greek people by "reporting' that Greece needs foreign investments in order to bring development and jobs back to Greece!


- According to reports, 53,000 babies will be kicked out of nurseries and kindergartens in Athens this fall. Even though there were 95,000 applications for nursery and kindergarten admissions, there are only 41,000 available places because the government has refused to allocate enough money to cover the costs.

The 2012-13 budget only covers 42,000 of the 96,000 who applied for admission. The municipalities have asked the Department of Development to increase the budget due to the huge demand, which has increased due to five years of severe austerity measures and cuts. People can no longer afford to send their children to private nurseries and kindergartens and are turning to the public schools they paid for with their taxes.
