Greece’s humanitarian crisis

Working through my emails and found this from a Greek friend:

http://m.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/feb/11/greece-humanitarian-crisis-eu

It shows some important detail of the NEW humanitarian crisis that is happening in Greece.
It is “NEW” because it did not exist 2-3 years ago.
It is a direct consequence of the neoliberal capitalist “solutions” to Greece’s economic “problems” dictated by the major institutions of capitalism in Europe and globally, championed by Germany’s Merkel speaking for them (not the German people), and allowed to thrive through the cooperation or silence of others who watched.
