Reuters propaganda doesn’t threaten Greek “toll dodgers”

(eagainst) Since the Greek crisis appeared in the headlines of the western liberal or conservative newspapers, a cheap pro capitalist propaganda against Greek workers swept all the information networks. It all started last year, where many newspapers, especially the tabloid ones, accused the entire Greek population of being “lazy and immature”. Of course, the reasons are very obvious… social struggles! Anti-government protests and anti-capitalist action took place all across the country. It was just one year after the uprising of 6/12/2008 which was the spark for a massive reaction against police brutality and violent repression, the most powerful social unrest, since the Polytechnic uprising of 1973. Greece is also a country that has suffered dictatorships and brutal suppression against pro-democracy and left wing activists. All these undemocratic actions were shamelessly backed by the US and the blood thirsty imperialist, Winston Churchill. BBC, CNN, the quasi fascist Telegraph, the Daily Mail and most of the American online tabloid news networks (especially the vile Newsweek and Fox News) do everything possible to obscure the reality, the causes of this popular anger. “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” (Malcolm X)
