Editors’ Note: February 12, 2012 was the day the second "mnemoniom" [Memorandum, i.e., austerity package] came before the Greek parliament in Athens.

Thanasis Pafilis of KKE, the Communist Party of Greece, gave a fiery protest speech. Posted only recently (May 21, 2012)  on Youtube, with somewhat rough English subtitles, his impassioned speech captures the anger of the Greek working class at  the right-wing parties collaborating with foreign finance capital to drive down the standards of the Greek people.

May we live to hear such a speech in the US Congress some day.
