Greek pensioner commits suicide in Syntagma square

The note left by suicide 77year old man says: 

"The occupation government Tsolakoglou annihilated every trace of my survival which was based on a decent pension for which thirty five years I only (without the support of the State) paid.
Because I have an age which does not give me the ability  individually to respond dynamically   (without excluding the fact that if a Greek took a Kalashnikov, the second one would be me) 
I can not find another way to react other than a decent end before I start looking in the garbage to survive.
I believe that young people without a future, will -one day- take up arms and at Syntagma Square will hang the national traitors as the Italians did to Mussolini in 1945  (Piazza Poreto  in Milan)"

Tsolakoglou was the first prime minister of the Nazi occupied Greece (Hellas) April 1941

It was short before 9 o’ clock in the morning when stunned passers-by heard a gunshot and saw a man falling dead. The man shouted "so I won΄t leave debts for my children" before killing himself.
