EU Threatens Greece May Lose Airspace Control

EU Threatens Greece May Lose Airspace Control

    by -

    Greek Air Traffic Control Association (GATCA) sounded a note of warning to Greece. According to a European Union report, Greece may lose control of its national airspace if the Greek government does not compromise with the Europeans’ demands.

    GATCA characterized the Hellenic Ministry of Finance’s strategy as “inexplicable,” with the belief that Greek control over its own airspace is in jeopardy.

    Greece earns money from its airspace, which the government uses for investments, training, equipment and payment of wages. Now, the EU is asking for this money.

    What happens if Greece refuses to satisfy their demand? Airspace control may be lost, and neighboring countries (such as Turkey and Italy) would be glad to claim it.

    “EU marked the plan for profits as ‘unacceptable.’ [Profits] which Greece had sent the Europeans,” said President of GATCA Spiros Rolakis.

    No official announcement has been released, so word from the Minister of Finance is highly anticipated.

      The air space over the Hellenic Republic belongs to the nation. The EU dare not try to take it away lest the violence in Athens be moved to each and every one of their capitals. Hellas has had enough of foreign political interference over the last few centuries.

      Without a sovereign currency, Greece has already given itself over to the ECB, this is just mopping up. Who ever is guaranteeing the euro controls greece, it’s a coup by private bankers and their allies in government. Neoliberals will take over all of europe, and the US because our Fed is also led by private bankers. They are privatizing and selling off the commons to each other as they impoverish the population by making them pay for it. This will end only a lot of blood spilled. If you notice they are building garrisons with armaments and spying apparatuses to protect  themselves fromt their own countrymen. This will only end with bloodshed because democracy is dead, unless these multigenerational parasites and their handmaidens are eliminated from the earth for the good of the world, they will find other hosts as they did after   WW2 and even the American Revolution.
