Main opposition New Democracy (ND) Europarliamentarian George Koumoutsakos, addressing a European Parliament plenary on Tuesday, noted the dimensions that the movement of protesting citizens has taken on throughout Greece.
Koumoutsakos noted that Europe is obliged to listen with great attention to the voices of the citizens, stressing that no policy is viable without the support, or at least the tolerance, of society.

"We are obliged to listen to the Belgian finance minister when he said that, in Greece, we must not exceed the measures that society can endure, because development is not recorded, and the country does not recover," Koumoutsakis warned.
