VIOLENT protests against the government’s austerity cuts will make no difference unless parliament is raided, a leading Greek professor has claimed.

Professor Dimitris Dalakoglou belittled the 12,000 people who demonstrated in Athens and the other 6,000 protesters in Thessaloniki, claiming their clashes will not affect the government’s incoming economic policies.

While Professor Dalakoglou acknowledged the protests illuminated the decaying state of Greek society and highlighted the public’s distrust of politicians, but he insisted nothing will change.

He said: “The reality is that unless the people storm the parliament there will be no real difference there. However, what you can see is a symbol and example of what is going on right now in Greek society.

“It is more relevant, what happens outside the parliament than what happens inside, because the government has no consent, and the political parties have no consent, so whatever they vote the society believes that they are all the same, they all are the same policy with a different name.”

The protests erupted a day before a new round of austerity cuts were set to be implemented.

Overall, the bill to be approved on Thursday night entails £4.2 billion (€4.9 billion) in cuts from 2018-2021, according to Greek state media.
