  • [01] Tsipras: 'We will not leave behind those hit hardest by recession'

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras vowed to help those most affected by six years of harsh austerity in Greece in an article which will be published in newspaper "Efimeritha ton Syntakton" on Saturday.

    "We cannot and will not leave behind those hit the hardest by the six years of crisis and harsh austerity," Tsipras writes in his article titled "With steady steps for [economic] recovery and democracy".

    "History never remembers the Left when times are easy, but when someone has to do the dirty work," he says. "If some people are impressed by the government's resilience, it is simply because they do not comprehend the close, historic relationship between society and the Left in this country. Because they were used to treating the most vulnerable groups as subservient clients and be accountable only to the special interests."

    The prime minister then says the government's power derives from the people's trust. "With this strength, we proceed with steady steps towards our goals. We close the painful circle of guardianship and we open a new page for the country," he concludes.

    [02] Obama will speak in favour of debt relief during Athens visit, says White House spox

    U.S. President Barack Obama is in full accord with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that the Greek debt is not sustainable and must be settled, a White House spokesman said on Friday, adding that the President will ask for debt relief during his visit to Athens next week.

    According to a report by ERT correspondent to Washington DC Lena Argiri, the spokesman said Obama recognizes the sacrifices of the Greek people and his visit will send a message of support.

    He will also "praise the government on the reforms" implemented and "stress that there's still work to be done."

    [03] 'Conspiracy of Cells of Fire' urges anarchists to scale up attacks, protests during Obama visit

    The terror group 'Conspiracy of Cells of Fire' on Friday urged the anarchist movement in Greece to scale up its action and "spoil the party" when U.S. President Barack Obama visits Athens next week, in two proclamations posted on the Indymedia website.

    It called for "dynamic action", including violent strikes against the homes and personal premises of politicians, judges, business people, ship owners, media moguls, journalists and police.

    In the proclamations dubbed "Plan Nemesis (Open Proposal)" and "Plan Nemesis (First Act)" the author said the visit should act as "the start of an organised anarchist movement." The proclamations call for attacks on the homes, offices and the environment of various representatives of authority and analyses the bomb attack on the home of public prosecutor Georgia Tsatani, calling judges a "corrupt clique," "defenders of the justice of power" and "designers of legal scandals."

    "Plan Nemesis is an international proposal to make a list with the names of people in power and to strike at their safe rear, where they feel certain about themselves...to strike them in their own homes."
