Greek port city of Patras removes European Union flag from town hall, citing people’s ‘hatred’ towards the EU

The more the EU pressures and blackmails Greece, the more pushback the Oligarchs in Brussels will face. The major port city of Patras is one such example.

City officials decided to take down the blue and gold flag of the EU from the city’s town hall, citing the ‘hatred’ locals feel toward the political-economic union.

We see it as an occupied country removing the flag of its occupier.

Sputnik News Agency reports:

Municipal government spokesman Andreas Antonopoulos explained the municipality’s decision, noting that “the flag of the European Union was removed because it is a symbol that people hate.” The spokesman added that “this is due to the fact that the European Union is working against the interests of the people in Europe and Greece’s participation in it is the source of the misfortunes that have stricken our country and its people.”

Greek news service GRReporter explains that the flag was removed at the behest of the city’s mayor, Kostas Peletidis.

The flagholder reserved for the EU flag is now occupied by a flag of the municipality, a deep blue flag with the golden emblem of the municipality, which features the head of Patreus, the city’s mythical founder.

A European Commission official, speaking on condition of anonymity, was quoted by New Europe as warning that “if I were mayor, I might worry that the funding for projects from my region might gradually decrease.” The Brussels-based newspaper notes that Patras has recently received nearly a billion euros worth of assistance from the European Investment Bank and the European Regional Development Fund, and that flying the EU flag is a must for beneficiaries of EU funding.

A lot of good those billion euros worth of EU assistance did for Patras and Greece.

Money that the EU doles out in programs is known by all to be full of corruption and cronyism, never reaching or benefiting the local population for whom those funds are “supposedly” intended for.

I think know-how just causes it to be worse. Now there is a channel to never care, now there is not going to be a opportunity for them to find.
