Cyprus Says NO to Bailout

Today, for better or worse, was a BIG day for Cyprus…

We (the Parliament) voted against the bailout terms imposed by the EU and the IMF…

This might prove to be the tipping point for the current financial (austerity) policies forced to the entire EU by the Germans…

If one (tiny) Nation can say NO, what stops Spain, Italy, Greece, ect…

We’ll have to wait and see…

Here are some pictures and a video I shot today during the protest outside the Cypriot Parliament in Nicosia, as the vote for the proposed bailout was taking place…

  2. Hi Doug,
    Even though I’m not a journalist, this thing happening here right now has the potential of becoming something major, so I wanted to add a first person account on what it looks like on the ground for those like you who pay attention to the coverage by the media…
    Viva Burn…
    Cheers,
    Thodoris
