Greece: We Can't Trust Anyone Any More

Demonstrators tell TRNN's Dimitri Lascaris why they oppose reforms demanded by Greece's creditors and why they support leaving the Eurozone.

The statement that "We can't trust anyone any more" is likely shared by most people around the world as they see their own governments under control of the corporate banksters.

What are we to do in this historic moment?  The media won't help us....the politicians won't help us.....many of our fellow citizens are trapped in consumerism and by meaningless entertainment as the ruling oligarchies keep them distracted from the real issues.  Armed right-wing thugs are increasingly encouraged to back up the status quo as the elites turn the people against one another. You see it happening in Greece, in Ukraine, and across America as the surging Donald Trump for president campaign targets Hispanics and the poor as reasons why our economy is a mess.

Yet as we see in the video above many people in Greece still hit the streets.  This is our saving grace..... building community in a public way to debate the issues that rarely get discussed on corporate run TV.  Our numbers will grow as we reject the official story from Wall Street dominated governments.  Democracy has been drowned but in Greece the people still gather and fight for their future and the future of their children.

We have no other choice.  We must continue to resist.

We must rebuild the sacred community and learn to rely on one another - and not be fooled and distracted by so-called leaders who ultimately carry water for Mr. Big.
