The reaction to the Greek government’s decision to shut down public broadcaster Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT) on Tuesday, is continuing. Today, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has called on the Greek government to reopen the channel. The Greek government said the closure was necessary to meet the country’s debt bailout obligations. It is the latest move in austerity measures aimed at leading the country out of recession. The European Broadcasting Union called the government’s action “anti-democratic” and “unprofessional.” In April, Greek parliament passed a bill which would cause 15,000 state employees to lose their jobs by the end of next…

“I thinks it’s fair to say that economic hit-men have produced the world’s first truly global empire…” Such was the response of author and activist John Perkins when defining what an economic hitman is in an interview with the Progressive Press on Tuesday. Perkins, an internationally acclaimed writer and advocate for global sustainability, goes on to point out that in the modern age of economic colonialism (in which empires are established through economic force as opposed to military domination) that the modern empires are not those of governments, but corporations. Under the auspices of supporting and developing infrastructure, Perkins claims the…

Honeywell CEO Taken By Surprise By Anti-Austerity Activists

When Honeywell CEO David Cote arrived at Saint Anselm College, he had expected a warmer reception. As the host of Monday’s “Fix The Debt” campaign event, Cote, whose company has come under heavy scrutiny by corporate watchdogs and tax advocates for its use of offshore tax havens, spoke only for three minutes before activists from the “Flip The Debt” campaign interrupted him with a message of protest, before being escorted out by police. “Fix the Debt claims to seek bipartisan solutions to reduce the deficit, but Fix the Debt is nothing more than a CEO lobby whose real objective is…
