A GREEK militant group threatened to continue its bombing campaign in a statement published yesterday, and claimed recent attacks against Citibank were in response to the international financial crisis.
The weekly newspaper Pontiki published a statement from the Revolutionary Struggle group claiming responsibility for a failed car bomb attack on Citibank offices in Athens on 18 February, and a bomb attack on Monday on a suburban Citibank branch.
The Pontiki has been used by the militant group in the past to publish its proclamations. In its latest statement, Revolutionary Struggle argued that the American bank was part of a "criminal network of international capital" responsible for the financial crisis.
"warned it will use the global financial crisis to spur a revolt that will end capitalism."
It's gonna be a long Summer.
We like to blow sh!t up. This is today’s excuse.
Can't say another Administration wold or could do better on the International front but this Administration is making matters so much worse by the lack of clarity and seeming unreliability it is continually projecting.
It may be a good idea to target banks on the dole. Let’s boycott and picket BOA, Citi, and other taxpayer plundering multinationals around this country. Maybe their deposits would dry up, and go to small local banks deserving of community support, rather that the plundering scoundrels running the “too big to fail” frauds.
Think of it as what would happen to Citibank eventually if it were ever allowed to be subject to capitalist principles.
Must be foreign graduates of the Bill Ayers school of political science in Chicago.
