On February 18th an open letter was posted to the website of PPGR from ‘The Monetary and Financial Policy Working Group of the German Pirate Party to the Greeks’. The open letter had the title “Greece: Hope for Europe.” This letter prompted a response from Thanasis Gounaris, Chairman of the Board of the Pirate Party of Greece and representative of “Pirates in Education” in the Greek Teachers’ Federation.
Gounaris contacted Pirate Times and stressed that there is no such prospective, unless we overcome the humanitarian crisis happening in Greece for the past five years. This has been concealed systematically by media in both Germany and other countries, showcasing negative comments and reports on Greek people.
“Greece cannot be the hope for Europe as long as children starve at schools”, said Gounaris, the Head of the 165th Primary School of Athens. He is forced by the circumstances to feed 400 pupils daily, assisted last year by Athens Municipality and this year by the Institute “Prolepsis“
