Let me tell you just a couple of things:
It’s about complaining, but also it’s sorting out a possible way out, for in the end, in a more simplistic or complex way, we are all complaining.
We fight like a brave, but there’s no human soul that can avoid staring the scenario and not feel anxiety, both for ourselves and for the others. Like in a Stockholm syndrome, we are now starting to blame those who “get money for nothing”: if they make you feel things are not fair, firstly you are too complaining, but secondly and mainly, at the wrong people, for it isn’t them who caused this situation.
If measures are being taken for financial crisis (apparently) not to happen again, then why the hell the markets have still so much to say on our lives? Why do our governments still follow their dictate? Because this financial (and social) crisis has been designed, carried out on purpose and worst of all, is here to stay, for a long time.
Occupying the streets (Wall ones, Sol ones, Syntagma ones), will only result in that: take the streets and come back home for watching the result on TV.
We must demand citizen participation in government. Maybe not assemblies (that would be too complicated to start with), but maybe forming as a first stage, commissions to control, survey and if required, remove our representatives. At once.
But one last thing, this should not to be done for free. Not as a heroic task overlapped with our day to day duties. That’s not the point.
Working contracts will need to be modified, and people assigned to citizen commissions should still be paid from taxes, through their jobs, for the days/months being absent of their ordinary jobs.
Island’s citizens may already have a saying on this.
