Blog reader Theo sent in this picture on the Auguststraße in Berlin.
It is of a very large poster against the bank-bailout which are presently being planned in the EU and satirizing the present state of affairs – Merkel and Sarkozy pulling the strings.
These so-called PIIGS countries are the scapegoat, or have become the sacrificial lamb in the recent international financial crisis. This ‘crisis’ has in fact been caused by the profligacy of the governments and banks in various countries like Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland and Italy – who if one believes the rhetoric have been enjoying a perfectly wonderful time on borrowed money.
However this huge poster shows the other and more logical view – namely that large banks in these countries and other lender countries like Germany + France in fact benefited from this mis-management of public funds big-time and now want the ordinary citizens of these countries and the rest of the EU to pay for their financial mis-management and incompetence.
It is hanging outside the ‘daadgalerie’ – http://www.daadgalerie.de/
