Does the EU Deserve the Nobel Peace Prize? Critics Condemn Role in Brutal Greek Austerity
Democracy Now!
MONDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2012

We spoke Sunday with supporters and critics of the European Union across Oslo as it was set to receive the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize. "When we heard that the Nobel Prize for peace will be given to the European Union, we first thought it was a joke," says Greek lawmaker Dimitris Kodelas of the left-wing opposition group Syriza, "especially because this comes in days when mainly the peoples of South Europe are living with the results of a financial war, and their countries are turning to colonies of debt with deprived citizens and looted national wealth." Kodelas spoke to Democracy Now! at the Oslo Peace House. [includes rush transcript]

Austerity, no attention for it's own citiziens, no respect of the national needs, total lack of democracy... and the EU gets the Nobel... The Lisbon Treaty is also about police cooperation and common economical politics... De Facto a half EU is at risk of poverty or in total poverty, with the 30% of the young persons without a whatever job... and the EU gets the Nobel ...
"Congratulations"!  ::)
