Congress: Oppose IMF Assault on Greek Democracy
Oppose what the IMF is doing to Greece by making a public statement against the hardline austerity demands and dangerous brinkmanship of the IMF in its debt negotiations with Greece.
Why is this important?
Greece is experiencing a financial crisis imposed by the hardline austerity demands and dangerous brinkmanship of its official creditors, especially the International Monetary Fund [IMF]. The IMF is a US-taxpayer financed institution. President Obama  and US Nobel-prize winning economists Paul Krugman  and Joseph Stiglitz  have criticized the IMF policies which have led to this crisis, which is coming to a head this week with threats that Greece may be forced to default on its debt and leave the Euro if Greek voters don’t approve new austerity demands, including cuts to public pensions and raising the retirement age.
Urge your Representative and Senators to make a public statement against what the IMF is doing to Greece by signing our petition.
1. “Obama joins ally list on Greek austerity relief,”
2. “Greece Over the Brink,”
3. “Europe’s Attack on Greek Democracy,”
