Eurozone member states have agreed on an aid package to Greece in 812 billion.
Euro countries' heads of state and government at a summit in Brussels agreed a deal to save Greece from economic collapse.
A condition would have been to stop the horrific animal cruelty.
 

 

Greece might soon be partially darkened after the economic crisis in the country has led to the country's energy companies have no money to import gas to power electricity plants in the debt-ridden country. It provides financial website bloomberg.com. The authorities and the country's energy companies have crisis meeting Monday to discuss a response to a crisis of 300 million euros to cover the bill for import of gas from Russian Gazprom, Turkish Botas and Italian Eni. "There is clearly a risk of blackout. Greece will pay a higher cost to import gas because suppliers will have greater assurance that they get their money. If the country can pay the bill, it is a big problem," says CEO Olivier Jakob from consultant company Petro Matrix to Bloomberg. (12.06. 12)

Why should we help this horrible country with a lot of money?
Greece never learn to care for his animals, so how could they manage their economy.
Greece is a shit country. I warn all to visit this country.

Is Greece Still Headed Down A Dangerous Dead-End Path? 22 February 2012.

Greece may have reached a last-minute bailout deal with its debtors, but the country has been saddled with harsh austerity measures and debt conditions, which leaves serious doubt on their ability to recover and avoid default in the longer term. In key respects, Greece is facing today what Argentina faced in August of 2001. Unless Europe reflects on Argentina's experience, the parallels with Greece may end up including financial meltdown, a deep output collapse, and social and political turmoil

I have responded to Greece's crisis ..
A tourist walked into the hotel in a small town in Greece.
She places a 1,000 kroner note at reception and go up to look in her room.
Hotel Director shall immediately notify the 1,000 kroner with him and ran to the butcher and pay his bill.
The butcher takes the money and pays the farmer for the meat, which he bought on credit.
The farmer takes the money and pay his bill at the gas station where he filled up on credit.
The manager of the petrol tank goes to the local hooker and pay her debt of Kr. 1,000
Whore goes to the hotel and pays what she owes with 1,000 kroner note.
The hotel manager puts the bill on the disk.
Tourists coming back to the reception. She does not like the room and takes her Kr 1,000 back.
No one has earned as much as a penny, but the entire city is debt free and all the future looks the way with equanimity.
And so ended the financial crisis .. :-)

The Country, Greece can not even handle their own economy, so other countries have to help them!

Greece is almost like China. Believe me, or Click Here!

Appalling, heart-breaking and shameful!

Shame on your country for doing this!!..your actions reflect the barbarism that your country is so well known for...
This kind of brutality must stop now and never happen again -- otherwise Greece will lose face in the world community!
The brutal and inhumane slaughter of animals in Greece is unacceptable behavior for any civilized country.
What Greece does and did is barbaric. We are outraged and we will not visit Greece as long as animals are tortured.
Barbaric actions such as hanging, beating, poisoning, shooting ect. animals are not easily forgotten!!!
Greece can not be a member of the civilized world without treating animals humanely.
Greece must recognize that the world has moral values and abhors this kind of unjustified barbarity.
In order to do business with the rest of the world and gain its respect, it needs to honor these moral values
and adjust its practices to be more humane. End this brutal treatment of animals immediatly!
Life is still a life even when its a animal!
Your image as a tourist country would be better if you manage to show that you care even the weakest beings.
Stopp this horrific brutality to animals!

Græske ferieøer snyder voldsomt i skat
Når danske turister slikker sol på øerne i det græske øhav, er der en god chance for, at de handler med skattefuskere, når de spiser på restaurant, køber souvenirs eller andet.
For det ser ud til, at der er lang vej endnu, før de græske myndigheder får bugt med grækernes hang til at undlade at blande skattevæsnet ind i forretningsanliggender.
Græske medier fortæller, at en særlig skattepatrulje har været på tur på en række ferieøer, og det er tydeligt, at skat er noget, der ikke er slået igennem alle steder.
Avisen Kathimerini skriver, at i op imod 60 procent af de forretninger, skattepatruljen har set på i populære turistområder, bruges der ikke kvitteringer.
I denne måned har patruljen undersøgt 1410 forretninger, og 57,1 procent af indehaverne bryder ifølge patruljen lovgivningen.
Kathimerini fortæller, at på øerne Zakynthos og Lefkada er det stort set alle, der bryder loven, og samme billede er der på den store Middelhavsø Kreta.
På den populære ø Santorini bryder 83 procent af forretningerne skattelovene, mens 75 procent af forretningerne på Korfu ikke overholder lovene.
På Paros og Mykonos snyder 70 procent af forretningerne i skat.
Grækenland befinder sig i en meget dyb økonomisk krise med en voldsom stor gæld.
Det skyldes delvist overforbrug, men et andet problem er også, at myndighederne har været meget dårlige til at opkræve skatter.
Lovgivningen har også et langt stykke hen ad vejen været for svag.
Et af de krav, som EU og IMF, Den Internationale Valutafond, har stillet til Grækenland som modydelse for de store milliardlån, er, at der skal ryddes op i administrationen.
Der skal sættes ind mod korruption, og der skal strammes op på skatteområdet

Greek holiday islands cheating dramatically in Tax

When Danish tourists soaking up the sun on the islands in the Greek archipelago, is a good chance that they deal with tax bunglers when eating at restaurants, buy souvenirs or otherwise. For it seems that there is a long way to go before the Greek authorities get to grips with the Greeks' penchant for failing to mix the IRS into the business affairs. Greek media report that a special tax squad has been on tour in a number of holiday islands, and it is clear that the tax is something that is not penetrated everywhere. The newspaper Kathimerini writes that up to 60 percent of business tax patrol viewing in popular tourist areas are used no receipts. This month, the patrol investigated 1410 stores, and 57.1 percent of owners breaking the law according to the patrol. Kathimerini says that the islands of Zakynthos and Lefkada is basically anyone who breaks the law, and the same image is on the large Mediterranean island of Crete. On the popular island of Santorini like 83 percent of business tax laws, while 75 percent of the outlets on Corfu do not respect the laws. On Paros and Mykonos cheat 70 percent of business tax. Greece is in a very deep economic crisis with a massive debt. This is partly due to overuse, but another problem is that the authorities have been very bad to levy taxes. The legislation also has a long way down the road was too weak. One of the requirements of the EU and IMF, International Monetary Fund has asked to Greece in return for the large milliardlån is that there needs to be cleared up in administration. Action must be taken against corruption, and to be tightened up in the tax.

 


How they hung 5 dogs in Crete. Watch the shocking video!

The Cretian men (fortunetlly not all of them) are well known in all Greece as the most barbarians.
They keep guns, they kill for no reason and they saw all their barbarians ensticts on poor animals.
The last episode in the serial of the dog suffering in Crete took place in Sitia (Hania) On the 14th of May unknown people hung from an olive tree 5 dogs together and a sixth from another tree oposite them. The vets said that they were hung in a way that their feet were reaching the ground and thats why they died suffering after 8 hours of torture! The police is afraid and does nothing.
Its ashame for all the human beings.
We ask you to boyccot Crete and to pressure any way you can in order to be put an end in this cruelty.

Here´s some video´s of my old Dog.

Dear friends of animals  (January 7 - 2009)

First of all we would like to thank you for your immediate reaction to our call for help for the strays animals in eroia, by sending your mail to the mayor.
It passed a whole month from the day that the mayor received (and is still receiving) mails - over 200 - from all over the world, complaining about the poisonings of the stray animals in her city and her ONLY reaction was to send rapidly her reply to all of you, trying to convince you that eveything is getting well with the stray animals in the town and that the municipallity does the best for them! Till now, one month after, neither she took any action about, nor she did try to have a contact with our Animal Welfare Association and see what we can do together about the issue of the poisonings. What she did about is blaiming us for the bad publicity of her town. So, it seems that the only thing she understood and reacted to, was that some people were shouting about the poisinings in Veroia and her explaination was that " IN VEROIA IT HAPPENS, WHAT IS HAPPENING IN ALL GREECE NOTHING LESS, NOTHING MORE.` So everything is under control, we do the same like the rest of Greece! We think that these words of the mayor is the complete confirmation of our accusations. So, unhopefully nothing is gonna change, and nothing changed. Unfortunetly the stray animals continue to be poiosoned.
If you are interested to learn what the mayor did after her reply to you, you can directly ask her via email.
With our best regards.

To: The Greek Government
We, the undersigned, call upon the President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Costis STEFANOPOULOS; the Prime Minister of Greece, Mr. Costas SIMITIS; the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Georgios DRYS; the General Secretary of the Greek Tourism Organization, Mr. Dimitrios GREGORAKIS; the Chief of the Police Mr Photis NASIAKOS and the Municipalities of Greece, to take definitive measures towards solving the ever increasing stray dog and cat population in Greece by implementing and enforcing Law Number 3710

Law number 3710 passed by the Greek Parliament in July 2003:

· Requires pet owners to register and identify their animals

· Provides harsher penalties for those who mistreat and abandon animals

· Provides for local councils to undertake neutering, vaccination, identification and re-release of strays

· Provides funding for educational campaigns on responsible pet ownership.

Animal abuse is widespread in Greece and includes starvation, neglect, cruelty and poisoning. Poisoning of both strays and pet animals happens every day; documented reports are abundant and have been shown on Greek television. Poisoning is indiscriminate, and can affect children, adults and animals alike. Offenders must be prosecuted and fined for this illegal activity. Given the current frequency of poisoning cases, it is also a concern that the numbers will increase as the country prepares to host the Olympics 2004 and the presence of stray animals on the streets is unwanted.

It is also common practice in Greece to abandon unwanted pets and hundreds of thousands of such animals roam parks, streets and forests all over Greece. The majority of these animals are not spayed or neutered due to widespread unawareness of the benefits of sterilization.

The answer is not to place these animals in shelters. Welfare conditions in existing municipal shelters are appalling and rather than solve the problem they simply perpetuate the suffering of these unfortunate animals. Furthermore adoption figures are low resulting in overcrowded shelters with enormous running costs. Municipalities must set up neutering centers now and re-release the neutered, vaccinated animals to the areas they frequent where animal welfare workers and other friends of the animals can follow up and feed them.

Tourists are horrified at the suffering they see whilst on holiday in Greece, many vowing never to return. Many Greeks are also concerned and are working hard to improve the situation but with little or no support from the authorities.

Given the magnitude of the problem, the Greek government, local councils and the Police must take action and strictly enforce Law 3710.

We thank you in advance for acting. Give Greek animals a chance.

 THE STRAYS OF VERIA ASKING YOUR HELP

Dear animal friends,

I hope you will all respond to this cry for help from Greece...
If you have other ideas whom to contact to stop these awfull killings, please let me or Lale know! bentbay@gmail.com

 


The stray animals of the town of Veroia are asking for your HELP!!

To all people who fight for the animal rights,
We are volunteers, members of the Animal Wellfare Assosiation of Imathia (ZO.I.) and we are acting in Veroia, a small town of Northern Greece.
Almost every day through the past years, stray - and not only - animals (dogs and cats) are poisoned by unknown people who hate animals.
As poison they use pesticides which causes a very painfull death to the poor animals. Everybody in Greece can buy these poisons for free.
Only in the last 6 months over 100 dogs and cats were poisoned on the streets! Last week-end at least 6 more dogs were killed in this way.
Most of them were sterilized, harmless and they were seeking only for a little bit love.
We are desparate, we dont know what else to do. We are doing all the nesessary procedures in order to prevent these kind of actions and to increase the awareness of the local society but nothing changes. We also coorporate in a national and international level with other N.G.O.s for the animal rights.
The municipality sadly is indifferent about this issue, even though the stray animals, according to the Greek law, are in their responsibility and does not react at all against the poisonings.
We lost all of our hope for a better life of the strays animals of our region. We are desparate and we are now asking for your help.
Please send e-mail or a fax to the mayor of Veroia with your complains about this kind of cruelty against the stray animals of Veroia and by asking from the Mayor Mrs Haroula Ousoultzoglou to take action against those of the citizens who use these awfull and barbarian methods for vanishing the poor stray animals.

Thanks in advance!

A HOLIDAY IN GREECE ?

A tempting idea, but if you are an animal lover ...

Poisoning of stray - and owned - dogs and cats is widespread throughout Greece and it occurs on a daily basis. Those responsible for spreading around poisoned bait are rarely caught in the act and usually the bodies of their victims are picked up by garbage collectors in the early hours of the morning. The poisoning is often excused as a necessary and cheap cleaning up operation of the large numbers of stray dogs and cats which are seen as a problem. Some people fear the strays would ‘spread disease’, others consider them a nuisance, especially when their numbers increase.

Sterilisation is not common for household companion animals, because it is regarded as a negative intervention in the animals’ nature, but their owners refuse to take responsibility for the unwanted litters of puppies and kittens, which are usually abandoned. In short, many people seem to view poisoning as a ‘fact of life’. The poison used can be anything from strychnine and rat poison to farm pesticides and herbicides; even crushed glass.

 

WHEN THE TOURISTS LEAVE ...

The average life-span of a stray dog in Greece is less than two years, as most of them perish during the winter months, if not shortly after the holiday season comes to an end. The last charter flights depart from the islands at the end of October, by which time most of the hotels and tavernas have closed down for the winter.

The strays, so dependent on the tourists for food during the summer, are left to fend for themselves, not knowing where their next meal would be coming from ... poisoned bait may be their last morsel, if they are not shot, or hit by a car, or hanged first ...
Millions of tourists from all over the world visit Greece every year and many are shocked by the sights of animals in distress. They often befriend and feed the strays, who are generally very friendly and loving ... they just want to 'belong' and they try very hard to find somebody to adopt them ... the lucky few succeed.

In short, many people seem to view poisoning as a ‘fact of life’. The poison used can be anything from strychnine and rat poison to farm pesticides and herbicides; even crushed glass.

 

WHEN THE TOURISTS LEAVE ...

The average life-span of a stray dog in Greece is less than two years, as most of them perish during the winter months, if not shortly after the holiday season comes to an end. The last charter flights depart from the islands at the end of October, by which time most of the hotels and tavernas have closed down for the winter.

The strays, so dependent on the tourists for food during the summer, are left to fend for themselves, not knowing where their next meal would be coming from ... poisoned bait may be their last morsel, if they are not shot, or hit by a car, or hanged first ...
Millions of tourists from all over the world visit Greece every year and many are shocked by the sights of animals in distress. They often befriend and feed the strays, who are generally very friendly and loving ... they just want to 'belong' and they try very hard to find somebody to adopt them ... the lucky few succeed.

Greek fire victims desperate for help

Dear Bent

 

Nothing can truly prepare you for seeing the magnitude of destruction and despair the wildfires in Greece have burned in their path over the last week.
A woman sobs in my arms as the few sheep she has left huddle together in an unmoving circle, at risk of starvation because they are too afraid to step onto the blackened land that surrounds them.
A cat sits on the scorched earth - white on charcoal black - meowing next to its owner, an elderly man who sat watching from his porch as every inch of his land and life’s work went up in flames just a few yards from his chair.
A Greek gentleman barely manages to save his goats with a fire hose after losing all but one of his 18 sheep -- now badly burned around the ears and mouth after the man used a blanket to try to stamp out the fire that engulfed it.
My name is Dick Green and I am on the ground in Greece as part of IFAW’s Emergency Relief Team to help feed and treat as many burned or injured animals as we can find.
 
 
The inferno that swept Greece killed 66 people, destroying more than 4,000 homes in 110 villages and nearly 500,000 acres of countryside and farmland. Most of the villages I’ve visited are ghost towns – surrounding lands burnt to the ground with only a few empty houses standing.
Fields of ash look like the blackened surface of the moon as the stray dogs I pass cower and hide. The villagers have plenty of donated food and clothing for themselves, but desperately need assistance with the long term sustainability of their agricultural community after losing most of their livestock and olive groves. Insurance in Greece is almost nonexistent.
It takes around 6 months for new grass and crops to grow for feed. And since most of the animals and herds are free range – there is little land left for food.
I believe that IFAW, along with local agencies in Greece who are helping to lead the feeding and treatment of injured animals, can assist a great many animals and help rebuild the shattered lives these fires have left behind, but we cannot do it alone. Please give what you can today to help.
After delivering food for his surviving goats, I pull away from the older gentleman who lost all but one of his sheep as he waves both hands in the air and shouts “I will fight.” With your help, he can.

 

With hope from Greece.

P.S. Despite a break in Greece's prolonged heat wave, there are now fears that heavy rain could cause floods in areas left exposed by the devastating fires.

 

In the article above they say nothing about all the homeless Dogs. WHY?
In Greece -  "Mans best friend is his own brain and not the Dog"!

The wildfires that have scorched southern Greece, killing dozens of people, reached the ancient city of Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic games, an official said Sunday.
I feel it´s good with that wildfires. Hopefully it will kill all those dogs with their poor and bad life in Greece. It is a shame for all the hungry and homeless dogs!  You find them everywhere in Greece.
Greece has a very bad and stupid goverment / administration. They hate dogs!!!

If the Greece people could learn to take care of their dog´s, then I know they will get very much help!

 
 

Twice a year the animals on this ireland are feeded. Unfortunately the food contains a very strong poison are pieces of glass. The starving animals wolfe down the food and when doing that they cut their throats or they swallow it and then dies slowly because of internal bleeding and the stomach and their intestines are etched. The local inhabitants find the animals laying in grotesque positions. These things happen all ower in Greece.

  På øen lægges der 2 gange årligt en masse mad ud til dyrene, desværre indeholder maden en meget stærk gift eller glasskår. Således vil de sultne dyr kaste sig over maden og enten få skåret struben over eller dø langsomt og pinefuldt af indre blødninger, hvor maven og tarmene langsom ætses op. De lokale beboere finde dyrene i grosteske stillinger hvor man kan se de har lidt slemt. Dette sker overalt i Grækenland.

The thick rope, strained with his blood and tightening his neck, were attached to a ceiling.
His heartless owners left him suffer even as the rope got into his flesh, causing
him discomfort and pain.

And they say: Man´s best Friend!

They all forget to feed their dogs!


Comments to the above:

The one on the dogs of Greece is something that touched me. I was in Greece in March 2007  and this wonderful dog became our tour guide  protectiung us crossing the streets and when we went to the beach, it made sure we went to the right place... That dog was beautiful and someone told us he belonged to a Canadian living there but we never met him.

I did not see any dogs running wild in Italy so wondered what was the difference..

The local dog patrol  has a lot to do shooting haphazard chosen dogs. The problem is that they are no good marksmen. manu hurted and whining dogs are thrown  on the truckbed awhere they will bleed to death. Other dogs shuffles away - exposed for a painful fate. Shooting, hanging,put to death with electric current or drowning are just some of the cruel methods, which are used to control population of ownerless dogs.

 Den lokale hundepatrulje har travlt med at skyde tilfældigt udvalgte hunde. Problemet er, at de ikke er gode skytter. Mange sårede og klynkende hunde bliver smidt op på ladet af en lastbil, hvor de langsomt bløder ihjel. Andre slæber sig væk i mørket - overladt til en smertefuld skæbne. Skydning, hængning, aflivning med strøm eller druknedøden er blot nogle af de metoder, som  bruges for at kontrollere bestanden af herreløse hunde. Der udlægges og mad til hundene, fyldt med knuste flasker, så hundene ødelægger deres tarme.

G
reece to ban smoking in all indoor public places

As if they were not poor enough already!

They resisted until now... but of course as they go on smoking... this is nothing than a new tax...


Greece, a nation of heavy smokers, is to ban smoking in all indoor public places from 1 September because a partial ban enacted last July failed, the health minister, Marilisa Xenogiannakopoulou, said today.
Last year's ban was largely ignored because of exemptions for small bars and restaurants, complex rules and the failure to crack down on offenders, and Greeks routinely light up cigarettes in taxis, larger bars, or even at work.
"There were problems in the implementation of the law, there were grey areas and contradictions," the minister said.
"We had to bring in new legislation ... From 1 September 2010, Greece will fully ban [smoking] in all public places."
Casinos and bars bigger than 300 sq m will be given eight months to apply the law, she said.
More than 40% of Greeks smoke, making them the heaviest smokers in Europe, and nearly as many are exposed to smoking at work, according to a European Union poll.
Smoking-related diseases kill about 20,000 people a year, costing the country an annual €2.14bn (£1.8bn), the health ministry said last year.
Bar and restaurant owners had complained last year's law was too complicated and was hurting business.
Some restaurant owners who had originally implemented the law put ashtrays back on the table after losing customers.
The government will publish a draft bill in the coming days, Xenogiannakopoulou said.
Last year's ban, agreed under the previous, conservative administration, imposed fines of up to €500 on smokers who broke the law, while bars and restaurants risked losing their licence.
Smoking is also becoming more expensive in Greece.
The government agreed in talks with the EU and the IMF earlier this month to increase excise tax on cigarettes by 10% as part of austerity measures aimed at plugging the huge budget deficit.

Denmark want all information on Greek fraud.  6th November 2010

How was it possible for Greece to keep large budget deficit hidden in years and thus to participate in the single currency on false grounds.

Denmark will now have the EU Commission on the track in the case.

Greece threw in the spring the euro to its worst crisis ever. A crisis, which has cost billions, and as in all probability,

cause of a Treaty amendment, allowing EU a much greater control, just as it restricts the Member States' sovereignty further.

And so can we not get to know how it succeeded Greeks to cheat the Central Bank

You may fear that the Member States with similar problems will copy the Greek approach?

Or is it rather fears that it will be revealed how Carelessly, the ECB has handled the common currency interests?

Now is the cat out of the bag, and the ECB may as well present all details immediately.
