Do you think the EU is actually a secret German imperialist plan?

    A small group of demonstrators occupied the Athens headquarters of German industrial group Siemens on Monday, police and company officials said, in a protest against the austerity policies imposed on Greece by its lenders.
    ATHENS: A small group of demonstrators occupied the Athens headquarters of German industrial group Siemens on Monday, police and company officials said, in a protest against the austerity policies imposed on Greece by its lenders.

    About 30 people entered the building in a northern Athens suburb, occupying the Siemens offices and hanging a banner outside the main entrance ahead of a scheduled rally to the German embassy planned for later this month.

    "We are not negotiating with domestic and foreign capitalists," read the banner. The protesters also threw flyers saying: "We won't become a colony of Germany or any other Imperialist power".

    Many Greeks blame Germany for the harsh austerity policies that the country's international lenders have demanded in exchange for 240 billion euros (£172 billion) of bailout funds since 2010.


    "It's a peaceful protest," Siemens Hellas spokeswoman Mari Agaliotou said. "The protesters are expected to leave within the day."

    Greece has a history of anti-establishment protests by leftists with frequent skirmishes between police and youths during rallies.


    Anti-austerity protesters occupied several public buildings in Greece and briefly entered the grounds of parliament in Athens last month, calling for the release of jailed members of a Marxist group.

    The protests are high because people are unemployed and rich people are funding protests for their agenda through these unemployed people.
