Pensioner commits suicide at Greek Parliament refusing to "search for food in the garbage"
I'm shocked and suicide is not a taboo issue for me and I'm planning a post about it but this is new for me and I don't know what to think.
Hi name is Dimitris Christoulas, a 77-year-old retired Greek pharmacist and he left this suicide note:
"The Tsolakoglou* occupation government literally deprived me of any chance of survival that relied on a decent pension, which I alone had to pay for (without any government aid) over the course of 35 years.
Since my age prevents me from substantially resisting this fate on my own (that said I would not rule out the possibility of following the example of any Greek that took up a kalashnikov), I see no other option to a dignified end, before having to resort to scavenging through the garbage for my food.
I believe that the youth with no future will one day take up arms and hang the national traitors upside down at Syntagma square, as the Italians did in 1945 with Mussolini (Piazzale Loreto of Milan)"
[*Georgios Tsolakoglou was a Greek military officer who became the first Prime Minister of the Greek collaborationist government during the Axis Occupation in 1941-1942.]
This is all I have for the moment.
