Another Greek OXI (NO) Day


A screenshot from Syriza official site


I still believe - I know, I am naive - in structural reforms to increase competitiveness and innovation.
I firmly believe in fiscal discipline and balanced public budget.

I also believe in the Euro as a strong currency, a universal guarantee.
And of course, I stubbornly believe in European unity, but I also believe that the Greek people have well done to secure their personal savings abroad - those who still had some - and to prepare themselves for a time of rise against hunger and humiliation.
And I no longer believe in status-quo imposing narrative.

It is time to recognize the default, and let social recovery be.
NO, I do not believe in squeezing the poor to pay back international creditors.
NO, I do not believe Greece might ever be able to repay the current public debt.
NO, I do not believe Europeans and Greeks
politicians and technicians - those who created the Greek default - might be the solution.
To the Greek people, my Latin greeting:
AD IMPOSSIBILIA NEMO TENETUR.

If I were a Greek citizen, I would vote no.


PS
Interestingly, there were other famous OXI-NO days, in Greek history...
