    From Grexit Unto Grexodus

    in Current Events

    The Grexodus is real.  It has been triggered by a financial crisis.  So will yours.


     


    The Greek diaspora is massive – proportionally greater even than the British.  The free movement of people is a hallmark of any progressive civilisation.  But when austerity measures have cast more than half of young people into unemployment, the loss of more than 150,000 graduates from a population where only five million are available to contribute to national wellbeing does not bode well for the future.


    The figures are stark.  Classically just over half the Greek population is not available to work; this proportion of children, pensioners and those in poor health is little different to other countries.  So, of around 11 million people, the entire economy must be supported by around five million – but only 3.6 million Greeks are currently employed.  1.4 million are without work. Nearly half of those (0.64m) are aged less than 35 years.


    Estimates of the scale of the Greek exodus vary.  Some counts suggest that 75% of the 200,000 emigrants since 2010 are graduates – a brain drain that hardly encourages investment in new start-up enterprises.  Add to that the lack of bank funding for small businesses and the ever-tightening noose of welfare cuts, and it’s no surprise that well-educated young people are flying out.

    THE FINAL WAKE UP CALL: INDIGENOUS INDEPENDENCE -

    in Culture

     


    Brought to you by Abruptly Wake Up the Sleeping


    For over four hundred years the Stolen Afrikan in AmeriKKKa has been robbed of the ancestry, their Afrikan spirituality, their science and their Story, they have been uprooted and are quickly dying.


    The results of governmental institutional racism & genocide are chaotic; single parent households, unwed mothers, incarceration coupled with mis-education and the under educated have practically destroyed the black family. Their right minds are being destroyed with religion, drug addition, the prison & education system.


    The continuous bombardments of the court systems manipulation and negative media influence have taken a toll targeted on black children, men and women.


    The Black Lions are here to help our women experience the presence of a man so they do not try to defunct his true nature.


    The Black Lions are here to take back our communities, businesses, families & kin our children and our women.


    ...Maybe then our black women will discover that A Black Man was all she really needed in the first place.


    We need our women by our side in the revolution.


    Society has brainwashed the black women into believing that they don't need their black men.


    Our women don't believe this because they refuse to see their own reflection, which is their black man because society has convinced the black females to destroy the only true hope for their survival....The Black Man!
