The people are suffering taking the brunt of economic turmoil and uncertainty. BBC TV news this morning ran an interview with a disheartened looking doctor at a Greek hospital who talked about the increase in suicides during the debt crisis. The latest suicide he recorded was that of his own son driven to despair.
With more people living on the streets and struggling to survive in Greece the government is between a rock and a hard place.
If it fails to make the changed demanded by creditors the jig will be up but if it doles out more austerity the people will collapse.
In 2013 we reported:

So as usual 'them that has' increase their lot on the back of the middle and working-classes, the poor, the vulnerable and the down and out of Greek Society.

Future generations will be living in a country that belongs to all and sundry but never Greece.
How much corruption has been part of the process? Who is getting rich?

Those that hold the purse strings of the world have already reacted to Friday's news of a delayed payment from Greece- markets are tumbling.
A tense day for Greece, the EU and the IMF.
