Syria conflict: Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp from the air - BBC News
Many of those forced to leave their homes during the Syrian conflict have taken refuge in neighbouring countries, and 80,000 of them are now living in a three-square-mile piece of the desolate Jordanian desert - home to the sprawling Zaatari refugee camp. King Abdullah says his country is at "boiling point" because of the influx of refugees.

Kolumne ǀ Vier Jahre nach Occupy — der Freitag
[ jeder fuer sich selbst ] Kolumne Die Occupy-Bewegung ist längst Vergangenheit. Die Ungleichheit jedoch wächst weiter. Vor allem, weil wir eine faire Gesellschaft immer noch dem Wachstum unterordnen [...] Warum ist es nötig, sich hinter vorgeblichen wirtschaftlichen Vorteilen einer faireren Gesellschaft zu verstecken? Warum ist Moral zur Begründung nicht genug? Sind wir nur bereit, Flüchtlingen zu helfen, wenn sie prima in unseren Arbeitsmarkt passen? Vier Jahre nach Occupy zählt immer noch vor allem anderen, was der Wirtschaft guttut. Deren Primat steht nicht in Frage. Da ist es fast egal, dass zum Jahrestag nur ein paar versprengte Occupy-Fans in den Zuccotti-Park kamen.

BBC Radio 4 - Today, 13/07/2015, Syriza MP: "the Europe of austerity has won"
[ECB, the silent enforcer ] Eurozone leaders have reached an agreement on the Greek debt crisis after 17 hours of talks in Brussels. The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said the deal would pave the way for the Athens government to secure a third international bailout to prevent it defaulting on its debts, under the plans, he said Greece would have to make serious reforms. Giorgos Katrougalos, the Greek minister in charge of reform, said that clearly "the Europe of austerity" had won. "Either we're going to accept these draconian measures or it is the sudden death of our economy through the continued closure of our banks. So it is an agreement that is practically forced upon us," he added. [...] "The political murder of our economy through blackmail."

Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis says EU deal is a 'new Treaty of Versailles’ | News | The National
THE bailout deal forced upon Greece by its eurozone creditors was dubbed “a new treaty of Versailles” last night by the country’s former finance minister. [...] the deal comes with years of enforced austerity and privatisation of state assets. Yanis Varoufakis, who quit last week after falling out with his European counterparts, spoke of the “politics of humiliation”. He said the lenders were taking revenge on prime minister Alexis Tsipras. “It is an impossible deal,” he added. “A deal that is simply not viable.” [...] “This has nothing to do with economics. It has nothing to do with putting Greece back on the rails towards recovery. This is a new Versailles Treaty that is haunting Europe again, and the prime minister knows it. He knows that he’s damned if he does and he’s damned if he doesn’t.” [...] “It’s not that it didn’t go down well – there was point-blank refusal to engage in economic arguments. Point blank.

referendum yes no - was not planned through if Eurogroup would not budge to demands of lesser austerity terms. Syriza had no plan (Grexit) for this case, how it played out. Thus (Tsipras) had to accept (capitulated) any offer Eurogroup offered; privatisation of state assets with an aim to raise 50bn, no debt restructuring nor forgiveness. // This is the 3rd bailout outcome; a bailout to repay previous bailouts (EFSF, IMF, ECB) and private debt obligations. Greece (Parliament) will have to accept Eurogroup offer/demands because they were not willing to opt by their own, the worst of the worst and the unknown of Grexit.

Greece debt crisis: MPs back bailout reform plan - BBC News
[post-referendum ] Greece's parliament has backed a government package of economic reforms aimed at ending the country's debt crisis and securing a new bailout [ to pay off previous bailout payments that are coming-up; EFSF, IMF, ECB ] After a late-night debate, PM Alexis Tsipras won overwhelming cross-party support but saw some of his own MPs vote against him or abstain. Earlier, he admitted that some elements of the package fell short of his party's anti-austerity promises. The proposals are to be studied by eurozone finance ministers later. EU sources says Greece's creditors - the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund - believe the plan is positive. Eurozone officials are also expected to discuss Greek requests for some of the debt to be rescheduled. Mr Tsipras is asking for €53.5bn ($59.47bn) to cover Greece's debts (re-payments and interest) until 2018. [...] given in to demands [&] measures rejected in a referendum last Sunday.

Athens capitulates to creditors - BBC News
"Greece: Prior Actions - Policy Commitments and Actions to be taken in consultation with the EC/ECB/IMF staff", it feels very familiar. That familiarity stems from its great similarity to the bailout proposals put to Greece by the creditors - the eurozone governments, the European Central Bank and the IMF - last month. Pretty much everything wanted by the creditors is there - with the odd tweak or softening, but nothing which looks as though it ought to be noxious to them. So there is a pledge for budget surpluses rising in steps to 3.5% of GDP or national income by 2018 [< in their dreams only]. // The referendum was a last ditch effort by Syriza to get better deal. Eurogroup, Troika, IMF, ECB called it a bluff and accepted a possible Grexit and according to Juncker did prepare for it.

Germany won’t spare Greek pain – it has an interest in breaking us | Yanis Varoufakis | Comment is free | The Guardian
Debt restructuring has always been our aim in negotiations – but for some eurozone leaders Grexit is the goal [...] To frame the cynical transfer of irretrievable private losses on to the shoulders of taxpayers as an exercise in “tough love”, record austerity was imposed on Greece, whose national income, in turn – from which new and old debts had to be repaid – diminished by more than a quarter. It takes the mathematical expertise of a smart eight-year-old to know that this process could not end well. [...] In my first week as minister for finance I was visited by Jeroen Dijsselbloem, president of the Eurogroup (the eurozone finance ministers), who put a stark choice to me: accept the bailout’s “logic” and drop any demands for debt restructuring or your loan agreement will “crash” – the unsaid repercussion being that Greece’s banks would be boarded up. [...] Wolfgang Schäuble, decided that Grexit’s costs were a worthwhile “investment” as a way of disciplining France et al,

IF THEY (creditors) can not see a 'common sense' deal through, Greece will have to issue IOU in lieu of Euro paper money for Pensioners, Civil Servants & Contractors or break with ECB and issue unsecured loans to Banks via Bank of Greece.

Griechenland: Slavoj Zizek im Interview über Tripras - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Mehr Europa: Im Interview verteidigt der Slowene Slavoj Zizek die Tsipras-Regierung - und deren Idee eines Referendums. Von Philip Kaleta [...] Zizek: Die griechische Regierung hat wiederholt ihre Absicht klar gemacht, Griechenland sowohl in der EU als auch in der Eurozone halten zu wollen. Diese Haltung ist völlig eindeutig, Referendum hin oder her. Es geht heute darum, ob der Sparkurs weiterverfolgt wird oder neue Wege eingeschlagen werden. Die Kritiker von Tsipras versuchen, den Kern des Referendums in eine Schicksalsfrage umzudeuten. [...] Ohne einen solchen Plan [oekonomischer neuanfang] würde sich die Krise letztlich immer wieder reproduzieren. [...] Sogar der IWF hat eingeräumt, dass Griechenland einen groß angelegten Schuldenerlass braucht, um "Raum zum Atmen" zu schaffen und die Wirtschaft wieder zum Laufen zu bringen.

If Troika-ECB-Eurogroup-IMF are Career Politicians - they will portray it as Syriza holding the gun to their head, and not enter new negotiations.

Greek economy close to collapse as food and medicine run short | World news | The Guardian
Banks said they had a €1bn cash buffer to see them through the weekend – equal to just €90 (£64) a head for the 11 million-strong population – and would require immediate help from the European Central Bank on Monday whatever the result of the referendum, in which the two sides are running neck and neck. Alexis Tsipras, Greece’s prime minister, was fighting for his political life on Friday night, using a rally to say that a no vote would enable him to negotiate a reform-for-debt-relief deal with the country’s creditors. [ Greece needs debt jubilee (and Allies urged also to forgo reparations) like post-WW2/Nazi Germany got that enabled it to economically succeed, but Greece (and its people) is not seen as too big to fail and not critical for European stability. A 20 year debt repayment pause that IMF last week brought in, is not enough. It is just a delay. It's economically not sound. Just opportunism to show to the public 'we do something.' ]

Griechenland: Was Angela Merkel noch alles angeboten hat - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Für den Fall, dass Tsipras die Verlängerung des aktuellen zweiten Hilfspakets zu den veränderten Konditionen akzeptiert hätte, bot Merkel ihm dem Vernehmen nach in einem letzten Gespräch am Freitag vergangener Woche unter anderem Folgendes an: ein drittes Hilfsprogramm, Schuldenerleichterungen, also eine teilweise Umschuldung, Investitionen in Höhe von rund 35 Milliarden Euro. // BUT NO debt jubilee/haircut and admitting that it was a EU bank bailout through the back door. // Counter-off on day 0 from Syriza; ESM to take on debt for two years.

Griechenland vor dem Referendum: Banken sind Herd der Krise - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Angesichts dieser Lage würden rationale Menschen den Schaden begrenzen wollen. Die einzige Möglichkeit, die es jetzt noch gibt, wäre ein verhandelter Schuldenschnitt für Griechenland ohne neues Programm, aber mit einer Refinanzierung der griechischen Banken. Mit anderen Worten: Wir müssten die Schmach über uns ergehen lassen, dass wir einem Teilverzicht unserer Forderungen zustimmen und gleichzeitig einen weiteren Kredit vergeben. So irrsinnig, wie sich das anhört, so sinnvoll wäre ein solcher Schritt aus deutscher Sicht. Nicht aus Mitleid oder Verantwortung. Sondern aus Eigennutz. Die Betonung hier liegt auf Teil-Verzicht. // // in the end it was a bank bailout through the backdoor sold to the people as Greece Bailout, the money went to the EU banks. period. so sell it as it is, the fucking pig. isn't politics about compromise? >> THUS LOL by Merkel call for more compromise - bit.ly/1Lyfjsc &!

Greece debt crisis: Tsipras announces bailout referendum - BBC News
[ >> great move! Not a Career Politicians move by a mile. ] Greece will hold a referendum on 5 July on a controversial bailout deal with foreign creditors, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has announced. [...] In the speech, Mr Tsipras said: "These proposals, which clearly violate the European rules and the basic rights to work, equality and dignity show that the purpose of some of the partners and institutions was not a viable agreement for all parties, but possibly the humiliation of an entire people." "The people must decide free of any blackmail," he added. &! bit.ly/1dmElfQ - “After five months of hard negotiations our partners, unfortunately, ended up making a proposal that was an ultimatum towards Greek democracy and the Greek people,” [...] “an ultimatum at odds with the founding principles and values of Europe, the values of our common European construction.” &!

Spain enters a new political era - BBC News
Anti-austerity parties, linked to the Podemos movement on the far left, which is barely one year old, have the prestige of holding power in Barcelona, and could form a coalition to rule in the Spanish capital. Across the country the ruling Popular Party (PP) of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has been punished. The PP will hold onto the fact that they still have the highest share of the vote of any single party. But they have lost absolute majorities in regional parliaments across the country, including in traditional heartlands like Valencia, where the party has been badly damaged by corruption. [...] What is also eye-catching is that significant support nationwide has shifted from the PP to parties on the left, even though the PP has taken Spain's economy from the height of the financial crisis in 2012 through to a period of impressive growth. [...] That could be because the social impact of the recovery is still not being felt by enough of the people bit.ly/1J0fkU3 & !> bit.ly/1Ht0Nfi

BBC News - Spain rally: Podemos holds Madrid mass 'March for Change'
Tens of thousands of people have massed in central Madrid for a rally organised by radical Spanish leftists Podemos. The "March for Change" is one of the party's first outdoor mass rallies, as it looks to build on the recent victory of its close allies Syriza in Greece. Podemos leader Pablo Iglesias told the crowd a "wind of change" was starting to blow through Europe. Podemos has surged ahead in opinion polls, and has vowed to write off part of Spain's debt if it comes to power.
