Tomorrow [Wend. July 15th] the Greek Parliament are expected vote on whether or not to accept complete humiliation by approving the 'German Coup'. Global anger at the EU, and especially Germany, has erupted both online and on the street. "By now every lawmaker in Athens is fully aware of the fact that what has happened to Greece is nothing short of a ruthless political coup executed by Germany." - ZeroHedge

Hundreds of thousands of people around the world are expressing their outrage at the fascist elites' attempt to steal Greek sovereignty at #ThisIsACoup. Check it out, you don't have to have an account there to read the messages, it's eye opening and jaw dropping at the same time.

Greece's former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said yesterday "the Eurogroup is 'completely and utterly' controlled by Germany. Adding today, "The recent Euro Summit is indeed nothing short of the culmination of a coup. In 1967 it was the tanks that foreign powers used to end Greek democracy...in 2015 another coup was staged by foreign powers using, instead of tanks, Greece’s banks. Perhaps the main economic difference is that, whereas in 1967 Greece’s public property was not targeted, in 2015 the powers behind the coup demanded the handing over of all remaining public assets, so that they would be put into the servicing of our un-payble, unsustainable debt." - Yanis Varoufakis

Highly respected economist Micheal Hudson's excellent interview on Greek privatizations and odious debt frames tomorrow's vote in Athens [see video below or read transcript here]. In part Hudson says, "...the European Central Bank has taken what is very nearly a fascist position. It says what we're after isn't the collective debts. We know Greece can't pay, out of the--it can't earn the money to pay that debt. What it can do is sell off its islands, it can sell the Parthenon. It can sell its land. It can sell its gas rights in the Aegean. It can sell its radio stations and television stations. It can sell its roads to people that we appoint.

Raúl Ilargi Meijer of The Automatic Earth, now writing from the street in Athens, says:"The people here in Greece are being forced to pay for years for something they were never a part of, and that they never profited from. The profits all went to a corrupt elite."

IMO the Parliament will first, instead of voting on the capitulation directive, call for a vote of non-confidence in SYRIZA and Alexis Tsipras will resign. New snap elections will be called and the Germans will be told to shove it. The thousands gathered in the streets all across Greece tomorrow will raise a collective cheer so loud the EU will tremble.

The Germans have made a terrible mistake, whether or not the mostly upper middle class Greek Parliament accepts Germany's terms of surrender. the Greek people will not comply. For the third time in a century the Germans have set in motion the forces that will split Europe, this time between haves and have-nots, As Varoufakis and most observers agree, before it was tanks, this time it's banks, but the results will be the same. Long live the resistance, long live an independent Greece.
