Greece suspends work at Canadian-run gold mine

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The Greek government has temporarily halted work at a Canadian-run gold mine in the north after determining the company had violated some terms of the concession, Greece’s energy minister said Wednesday …..

… According to documents released by the ministry, the violations concern a project to build a copper and gold processing plant, including not carrying out certain tests on the flash smelting process proposed for use. According to the decision, the suspension will be lifted if the company re-submits the necessary documentation and meets the requirements within a year.

Hellenic Gold managing director Michalis Theodorakopoulos voiced surprise at the decision.

“Hellenic Gold has never broken the law. (It) is now at the stage of assessing the ministerial decision, with which we disagree, and which threatens the survival of 5,000 people,” he said, adding that the company would “defend (itself) with all legal means at its disposal.” …..

Watching leftards implode never gets old! 

What does Greece need with 5000 workers when they always have the Troika to bail them out?

    Previous articles have described how that gold mine has been illegally picketed by Greens and far-left activists (ie Marxist-Leninists and Trots) the Greek employees trying to earn a wage being persecuted and assaulted, their houses trashed, the full bit. I could dig up the articles but I won’t right now.

    It is a sad story, but it also illustrates what is so wrong with Greece: a huge proportion of the population basically want communism, and don’t want to listen to the reasons why it won’t work.

    In turn this is because unlike Romania and Bulgaria the Greeks never had to live under Soviet rule, so they have never had communism discredited in the way it has been in those countries. It will take two full generations of abject penury before the current generation of rampant leftists die off and a new generation which is free of the toxic religion grows up.

      It’ll be interesting to see which way Greece goes. The leftist PM has announced his resignation and called for early elections. He is/was a leftist who realized they ran out of their own money and now have to rely on other people’s money, but, then sacrifice autonomy for the reliance!
