Forget the funny money, this is war against the people. And not just the people of Greece, although they’re currently in the firing line. On this week’s episode of Behind the Headlines, we’ll be looking at the context that is woefully absent from the utterly inane mainstream media narrative surrounding ‘the Greek debt crisis’.

The euphoria of last week’s resounding ‘NO!’ to austerity in the referendum has quickly given way to bitter acrimony in Greece, following the resignation of maverick Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and the apparent capitulation of Prime Minister Tsipras to the EU’s demands for the imposition of austerity measures.

How did this situation come about? And whose debt is it really? Will Greece be forced out of the Eurozone currency? What might happen if it does? Do Eurocrats and European leaders even understand what they are doing? And what is Washington’s interest in this apparently intra-European affair?

All this and more this Sunday, 12th July 2015, from 2-4pm EST / 8-10pm CET.
