Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

German public TV channel ARD, whose morning show I usually watch during breakfast, has a young reporter on the ground, who usually got airtime to say a line or two only. But today, also via satellite link, they interviewed a German-speaking Greek economist (sorry couldn't memorise his name) who got to say all that needs to be said: that the protest is against the austerity programme which causes recession, that the recession also results in reduced tax income and thus no solution to the solvency crisis, that the long-term solution would involve pay rises in export countries, that the short term solution would involve defaults and tax hikes for the rich.
