    [02] Athens Newspaper Headlines

    The Tuesday edition of Athens' dailies at a glance

    The international economic crisis, the sale of Olympic Airlines and Greece's national anniversary of "OCHI Day" in 1940 mostly dominated the main front-page items in Tuesday's newspapers.

    AVGHI: "While throughout the European Union banks and industries are being re-nationalised (in accordance with French President Nicolas Sarkovy) Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, faced by the extended political crisis due to the revelations of the Vatopedio scandal, attempts 'a flight towards reforms', aiming towards the sale of Olympic Airlines, that is, the privatisation of the national carrier".

    KATHIMERINI: "Businesses send out an SOS due to the lack of credits. Outcry of anxiety by hoteliers. Businesses in Greece extend a signal of danger, as the banks stop lending. The markets hope for a new reduction of interest rates by the central banks, so as to avert the upcoming recession".

    LOGOS: "Restriction of the crisis to households. On Friday is the agenda for the economy. Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, from Qatar, during the inauguration of the Greek Embassy in Doha, referred to the measures which the Greek government has taken to restrict the cost of the crisis on the income of households. He further stressed the government's measures to speed up the necessary changes and reforms".

    NIKI: "Terror and anxiety in the households - a turbulance is coming for the real economy. 'The crisis of the century' has passed the door of the Greek economy, but the prime minister and his government are indifferent to the repercussions which it will have and are dealing with the sale of Olympic Airlines to the Arabs of Qatar. The recession is approaching, a fact which signals dramatic developments in the so-called real economy".

    RIZOSPASTIS: "A strong No to plutocracy - popular counter-attack. NO by the Greek people in the war of 1940. The great anti-imperialist struggles followed, that of EAM-ELAS and the Democratic Army of Greece. The Communist Party of Greece opposes the call by the capitalist political parties in favour of unanimity, that is, popular subjugation to the "one-way Euro-road and class cooperation".

    TO VIMA: "New threat by the poor neighbours. Domino crisis from Kiev to Sofia - The Balkans on the verge of bankruptcy. The countries of SE Europe, Turkey and the countries of the Balkans are being swayed into the economic crisis. Ukraine, after Hungary, resorted for help from the International Monetary Fund. The domino in the neigbouring countries troubles the government as more than 3,500 businesses of Greek interest are active in the Balkan countries, having invested six billion$ in the past three years".
