Greeks wonder whether the rescue package is a cure...or a curse

In Athens, people have mixed feelings about the multi billion euro rescue package.

While some people have welcomed the deal, others fear the impact it will have on the country’s financial future.

“Everything that has to be done, needs to be done so we can be saved,” said Takis, a pensioner.

Giuseppe, who works in tourism, says that “the government cannot do anything because they are facing a debt and are unable to impose any conditions so they must accept the conditions imposed by the ones giving the loan.”

“The problem is that we have to give money to get the money, they won’t give us any money unless we give back,” said Gus Chamberlain.

“I am worried, very worried. Things will get difficult, for me and my children, I am worried if we will get proper pension,” said Olga.

While the bailout aims to restore economic stability to Greece and the Eurozone, in Athens people remain unconvinced that it is the answer to their problems.
