  • [01] Independent Greeks' Youth Organisation founding congress

    ANA-MPA The Independent Greeks on Saturday inaugurated the party's Youth Organisation with a founding congress, which was opened by party leader Panos Kammenos.

    The Independent Greeks Youth Organisation founding congress was held in light of the party's regular Congress slated for end-April.

    Kammenos said that his party, which arose through the movements of Syntagma Square and internet sites, has been attacked by all the media of the establishment, slandered and hurt by mutineers, but has proved "stronger than them".

    Kammenos said that his party brings hope, which means reversal but also planning for the country's future.

    For his party, "Greece is under occupation", the Constitution has been abolished, and now there is no legality, he said, and called on all the Greeks "of the great patriotic arch", as well as those who have left the party, to join forces with the Independent Greeks to rule the country.

    Referring to German chancellor Angela Merkel and finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, Kammenos said that "some today point to Cyprus and tell the Greeks that if they do not subjugate they will face worse things".

    "No, Mrs Merkel and Mr. Schaeuble. We will not compromise and we will topple you. The Turks said the same things, and the Germans during the occupation, but the Greeks resisted," he said.

    Kammenos also accused Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos of signing personal letters to the EU for reduction of the pensions and salaries to 300 euro. He said that the crisis was a banking crisis but 'baptized' a fiscal crisis, and turned into a humanitarian crisis, and at the end into a national crisis because "that was their purpose".

    He further proposed the establishment of an Investment Bank of Greece, and called for ensurance that all the money that will enter the banks via the recapitalisation will be channeled to the market, accusing the bankers of not channeling money to the market from the money that they received.

    Kammenos also severely criticised Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras, calling him an "employee of the Eurogroup", and the Greek government over its stance on the recent developments concerning Cyprus, and stressed that his party was steadfast in its red lines on national issues.
