Rap from Austerity Greece
I chose to introduce these rap videos from Greece by quoting a part of the Background to the third appeal by the Greek people to the International Criminal Court in Hague
“For approximately the last three years, Greece has been making headlines all over the world, and the general impression has been that the Greek government has been fighting tooth and nail to save the country from bankruptcy and ruin. In actual fact though, things couldn’t be more different, because, in reality, Greece’s alleged saviours are the same people who all this time have been fighting to bring the country and its people to their knees, and have unfortunately been very successful in their endeavors. Unfortunately, to this day no one has managed to stop them. There are modern methods used, such as THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, PSYCHOLOGICAL as well as PHYSICAL VIOLENCE, FINANCIAL WARFARE, CONTINUED VIOLATION OF BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, PROPAGANDA and LOCAL, REGIONAL and NATIONAL TERROR, which, combined, actually fetch much ‘better’ results than gas chambers, and without a doubt lead to rapid population decline, and the final goal, which is, in a way or in another the destruction of the local population.”
33% of the population are unemployed – 64% of the youth are unemployed – 600 000 has already migrated from Greece – 6 300 have committed suicide – it is a country that is pushed to the brink of civil war and towards a holistic catastrophy.
This is a sample of how the Greek rap portrays these issues – I am afraid that unfortunately the videos is just in Greek but the music, the beats, the attitude, the rage, the looks and the energy is easy to understand… I can asure those who dont speak Greek that the lyrics are well-fitted razor sharp blows in the heart of the Greek Government and the political system, the EU-troika, the IMF and the NWO… This is some raw licks in the solar plexus of the established bankster-servants and the silence bribed and enslaved by plastic money and fake security… The ending message in the 2nd video is “Merkel can suck our motherfucking cocks” and that attitude towards Merkels and EU’s antidemocratic policies, pretty much goes for all Greeks who are committed to a social, political LIBERATION STRUGGLE! Many of these boys are fighting battles during the last four years with the riot police in Athens, Thessaloniki and Pireus on a regular basis…
