Greece: What The Banksters Have Wrought

In this traumatised city, perhaps the most alarming conversation I had was with Christos Christou, a surgeon and vice-president of aid charity Medecins Sans Frontieres in Greece.
His group is finalising a report into the impact of the financial crisis. It is worried by the growing numbers unable to access healthcare, and watching with alarm the rise in infectious diseases, the increase in mental health problems and the return of malaria after an absence of nearly 40 years.
‘It is very worrying — we have to work out our reaction,’ said Christou. ‘We have not yet seen a humanitarian crisis here like in Sudan, but we have to be ready.’
This is a profoundly alarming scenario, conjuring up images not seen in modern Europe outside of war zones. ‘Even two years ago I never thought I would see these sorts of things here,’ he said.
