    PM George Papandreou has said that only his 28bn-euro (£25bn) austerity plan would get Greece back on its feet.

    If the package is not approved, Greece could run out of money within weeks.

    Without a new plan in place, the EU and IMF say they will withhold 12bn euros of loans which Greece needs to repay debts due in mid-July.

    They recently had elections, where the pro-bail out parties won. They know they need the money because they are bankrupt.

    A Grexit will lead to a much worse civil unrest if not a civil war.

    I also think, if Greece leaves the Euro, some countries might do just the same.

    Trade unions in Greece have called the first general strike since the conservative-led coalition government came to power in June.
    Wednesday's 24-hour walkout is to protest at new planned spending cuts of more than 11.5bn euros ($15bn; £9bn).

    UK na USA wao wanachapisha pesa halafu wanawambia wenzao wakaze mikanda ujinga gani huu? Kama ni kukaza mikanda si wote wakaze mikanda. Viongozi wetu Afrika wanatuangusha, huu upuuzi wa kuwafanyia kazi mabwenyenye lazima utokomezwe.

    Thousands on Paris streets to denounce EU 'austerity' pact

    Thousands of left-wing protesters took to the streets of Paris on Sunday to denounce the European Union fiscal pact forcing governments to stick to tough deficit limits.
    Chanting "Resistance!", protesters marched through central Paris in a rally organisers said was aimed at fighting EU-imposed austerity, not at criticising the government of Socialist President Francois Hollande.

    "This day is the day the French people launch a movement against the policy of austerity," one-time presidential contender and Left Front leader Jean-Luc Melenchon said at the march.

    Hii ndio outcome ya kusimamisha uigizaji wa mafuta toka Iran. Spain hoi, Ureno nayo hoi, uchumi wa UK unakuwa slowly na huko hoi. Ufaransa ashukuru mpango wake wa kumuua Gaddafi ulifanikiwa, otherwiz ma-banki yake yangekuwa kama Greece... Soon German atashindwa kuibeba EU, 'kila mtu atabeba msalaba wake'... Hapo ndio tutaona nchi nyingi zinafilisika na EU kuvunjika... Strategically, US-Iran conflict was designed diversionally to stop coming powerful EUZONE. EU na china zimekuwa zinamsumbua sana US, kwa sababu ya power shift... Sasa aliyebakia ni mchina..

    Greek PM says funds will run out by November

    Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras says that if the next slice of international aid does not arrive, his debt-ridden country will run out of money by November.


    "Until the end of November. Then the coffers are empty," said Samaras in an interview with the business daily Handelsblatt on Friday.

    wewe nafikiri hata matatizo ya EU huyaelewi unaandika tu labda kwa sababu unazozijua mwenyewe, sasa Marekani wanahusika nini hapo? au Uingereza? wote sio wanachama wa sarafu moja ya Euro sasa watawaamuliaje wanachama wa Euro? Kama ni kukaza mkanda maamuzi yanatoka Brussel kwenye makao ya Umoja wa Ulaya na si kwingineko na maamuzi hayo hutolewa na nchi wanachama kwa wanachama wao husikia na si vinginenevyo!
