ATHENS – Greek pensioners on April 1, as they have for almost five years, protested again in the streets against relentless benefit and health cuts.

None of the demonstrations have deterred any government administrations from imposing austerity measures on orders of international lenders although Prime Minister and Radical Left SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said he won’t anymore, which is what previous Premier and New Democracy Conservative leader Antonis Samaras said before he did anyway.

The pensioners, who have seen cuts of 30 percent and more in benefits and lump sums while having co-payments raised for medicines in a Socialist society where hundreds of thousands of people have no health care are also upset many lost huge amounts in their holdings in devalued Greek bonds.

All the protests have been in vain and been ignored by several governments.
