Time for Change – Athens in Crisis
As you are going through this latest post, in Athens there is an unfolding upheaval on the streets, against the austerity measures Troika is imposing to Greece.
Between April and June 2012 I went to Athens to photograph the features of a widespread crisis caused by the collapse of the nonfunctional capitalism of the world’s financial markets. As usual who pays for it is the economically fragile part of the population. Taxes have been increased out of proportion, the minimum wages are carrying on being reduced month after month, families have to cope with as little as €300 par month and the public institutions are falling in decay because of lack of financial resources. How is it possible that we are allowing this to happen? When will we see a brighter future for all? Have the values, onto which we have created Europe vanished? We shall waste no more time and we shall look forward to change the course of history by voting and let the world know where we stand.
Hasta La Victoria, Greece!!!
