Belief…What are you stupid enough to believe in…?

This is long overdue to be fair, I’ve had some issues boiling over for a while but hadn’t had the chance till I was inspired writing a little reply to another post on things you believed in but don’t anymore, and out it came…

…Zip…

So, I used to believe in the the Health sector, in Politicians and in International Organisations who falsely lay claim to acting in our interests, in NGO’s and people who all claim to want a better world – only to find that most of these people when given the chance on a plate to do something positive, rarely will and are more interested in their title rather than the cause.

I used to believe in people helping you when you were in need, people acting in the interests of right over wrong and in the principals that I remember my Grandparents instilling in me whilst growing up, only now to find that so many people who put themselves in a position whereby they can do something positive usually turn it to their advantage and trample over those who genuinely seek to help, or who then could potentially expose their ignorance and incompetence in matters which they themselves should be involving their sorry asses in.

I used to believe in the mental security that raising awareness and highlighting problems, major problems would be embraced by the public and that through action rather than words people would all help make the world we live in at least tolerable for many, not perfect – just tolerable, enough to know that there is some good in the world but I was wrong so it seems, this at some point changed and nobody told me about it…

I came to Greece in 2008, thought a change of scenery would be good and ended up working for an NGO which I thought was helping society, since I have come across the most vile and blatant malpractice possible, scum on a level I never though could exist and corruption and morally devoid/unethical servants to the cause who manipulate and abuse the Health sector for their own self gratifying needs. Whilst they are allowed to do this, to lie, steal and abuse the lives of those who object, it affects lives.

Its only when your involved in something like this whereby the matter truly is real. I remember walking or scurrying to work through the centre of Athens when the Riots broke out two years ago and though to myself through tear gas strained eyes, Wow, that’s not like on TV… It’s pretty hairy, even for a hippy like me!

So I come to Greece, I look for work, get offered several positions across the Islands but turn the best one down at the bequest of the President of the NGO. So, Contract sorted, witnessed and ‘ola kala’ as we say in Greece (all good), onto better things so I thought…

I was new to this sector and have little interest in Health matters normally other than to try and live life, avoid being hit by Greek Taxi’s and to do my little bit where possible whilst I still have time on this Planet, but my hopes were shattered by the sector, the organisations who all sit back and allow this type of mistreatment of its public, and the Ministries who allow it- all whilst being run by the Government, International Organisations and the so called people we vote in, who then allow this in the first place and do nothing when it’s revealed…

Since, having had money I first needed to survive whilst being lied to, never paid properly and then treated like sh*t, It was then stolen from me due to these bastards when I first came to Greece and refused to commit fraud for the President of the NGO… Is it me or is that a bad Idea anyway…?

Possibly a bad mistake I guessed at the time as they then changed the locks and have tried to claim that my contract is a forgery, the same one a witness testified to us both signing, which depending upon which of their lies you believe, I either then planted on the organisation months after being locked out and having no contact with them, or another member of the board signed it, then planted on me so I could then plant it on them, or one which was for half the time stated which we did sign, I just decided to work a few extra months for fun, as you do… Damn I’m good…

So I’m unable to still get many of my possessions over nor get anywhere or see anyone for this duration I then discover they’ve stolen my Insurance, my IKA, and not paid my Taxes.

They slander me for exposing them and months after I leave and fight for my rights, the morning of my tribunal against them they then bring out an illegal court case against myself for claiming that the Broadcast on SKAI radio was wrong and that my accusation of them being under Investigation by the Ministry of Foreign affairs was a lie. Hmmm, a lie…

So, even though they had been notified about an Investigation into their affairs which they claimed was false and wasn’t happening, they were then found Guilty of and highlighted for defrauding the state, illegally claiming to be Doctors and many other activities which are still ongoing, by an Investigation which was under way at the exact same time i stated, for financial Irregularities which turned out to be worse than first previously thought… Oops…!

Their court case served one purpose, to delay my tribunal against them whilst making it impossible for me to claim any benefit in the meantime, hoping I’d fold and have to give up while my dispute was ongoing. No, so I starve for three years, and still am fighting every way I can to survive and to inform people to the genuine facts unlike the horsesh*t these maggots spread. – I lose my house, I watch my health deteriorate each day as it seems I alone fight this problem and I do all I can, in myself, in my work and my hope for the future still.

I wait eagerly for another tooth to drop out through malnutrition whilst they laugh it up, another day at the office robbing and stealing from us all while they abuse further the resources at their disposal willingly decieving all they can, still living the lie they created ten years ago. After all, pretending to be Doctors is a full time Job in the Greek CDC so it seems, certainly at KEELPNO anyway.

It’s not to say it doesn’t happen elsewhere too, but I know elsewhere wouldn’t have them f*cking over innocent people while they were known filth, liars and scumbags who hide behind other parasites in their pursuit of longevity in a cause which is so far exposed it’s laughable.

I in the meantime, not being content with having to suffer abusive treatment by the Greek CDC who are the ones responsible for allowing this in the first place, who then allow their staff to run a hate campaign against myself and others after the threats made by their staff failed to achieve anything other than to p*ss me off, refuse to even investigate or react to the many serious issues about their staff and organisation. Etsi…

First, I turn to the people I thought I knew who don’t seem to give a f*ck, the Politicians whom many all knew of this and seem to believe this is common practice and not really a problem, then the press who daren’t report on it, many for fear of upseting their connected ‘friends’ or family, or because I’m just some Johnny forigner, having seen what is allowed and having spoken to many of them, I know it’s not that, many supported and helped these people achieve what the have, after all, a criminal you know isn’t as bad as one you don’t.

When this first came to light over two years ago, the editor at SKAI Radio wouldn’t run the full story because of ‘intervention’… Nice. I’m happy to bear the brunt of your misgivings in the meatime, I’ll starve and be persecuted while you fail to address the news, YOUR key f*cking responsibility…

Since it’s in the hands of the Judges but in the meantime I wait, I live off thin air and fictional vegetables, discover new ways of making pasta with f*ck all taste like something other than pasta with f*ck all. The little money I have goes on my cats as they have no understanding of soon, and the precious help of the one or two people I know well enough I have managed to just stay alive through charity, genuine affection or maybe even a profound sense of sorrow for my never ending predicament.

People used to ask me if I fasted for Easter when I first came to Greece but those few who have bothered to get to know me know I’ve ‘fasted’ every f*cking day here so far. If I ever see meat again, it’s got no chance and Inedible isn’t a word I think I’ll ever recognise officially either.

No disrespect to anyone but I couldn’t give a sh*t about your religion, your dietary needs or your medical imbalance, if foods offered, it’s going to get eaten. My dear Grandad used to be able to take the pattern of a plate when he was hungry, I personally think I could now take the enamel off one…

People used to ask me if I believed in Aliens, right now I don’t even believe in meat…

But still I fight on…

I couldn’t righfully express how f*cking pissed off I am at the minute with regards to these parasitic, anally retarded, Vacuous cretins but an eye for an eye as they say. Let’s see who has the last laugh shall we?

I have a future, talent, skills beyond their wildest dreams, hope, possibilities and belief in not just myself but what I know I can do, and this is after all I have been through. The best thing they ever did was to threaten me, I probably wouldn’t have pursued it this far to be honest, I’d won already anyway. I was right and I hadn’t done anything,  I’m not a saint, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t decietfully screw people, threaten and potentially blackmail people unlike some folk…I certainly wouldn’t expect to if I was working for the state either, and if I did I’d expect to face investigations after being exposed for such behaviour.

What did ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ – the Greek CDC do after the president of this NGO who was under Investigation do after being exposed to his actions…? Extended his contract… Well done with that! Subsequently he was the head of their trafficking department, ideal behaviour and standards you want someone to have when they’re dealing with immigrants, after all we know how well I was treated when I came here…

Then there’s the refuge they so often like to boast about! A non legal refuge they had, barren, ill equipped and which housed a collection of immigrants who were largely abandoned by this man and the senior members of this ghost NGO, who were all conveniently never around or prepared to equip or feed them. Gracious attempts on one rare occasion they appeared had the secretary of the NGO forcing one resident to eat food he stated he was allergic to, after he came back from Hospital it was deemed maybe a bad idea and something that he should have respected despite our attempts to convince him otherwise. Allowed for over a month to survive without water, and exposed on TV without being censored was all part of the ‘protection’ these individuals also endured.

Previous members of the NGO including myself and a former volunteer can testify to how their elections are a sham and after they self-elect themselves into the same key positions they then fabricate whatever is required for their farce of a statute. I discovered by accident that my name had been illegally used as an entry for their election committee despite having only been in the country a month or so and not having any knowledge of Greek after pursuing the President to prove accountability of our funds prior to Christmas 2009.

As for the confidentiality they abused, running non protected phone lines for HIV/Aids patients and enquiries, allowing them direct access to caller information, something that they failed to address whilst illegally claiming to be Doctors. We’re not talking just anybody here but the President and another senior Board member… Presenting themselves as Doctors for not only access to funding but for access to key medical data thanks to the head of this sector within ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ itself, nice work if you can get it so I hear.

The real problem is that ΚΕΕΛΠΝΟ oversaw this and were responsible for employing them, giving them their unaccountability and allowing them to run this sector without any respect, moral guidelines or form of ethical conduct whatsoever.

Meanwhile, back in realityville, justice is forthcoming. Their President who two years ago lied and slandered everyone possible in his attempt to cover up the truth showed his support for Justice being revealed, with thanks it now is.

They have lost their reputations, their future is very bleak, time for their lies is running out and then the fun really begins… The first of many court cases are now under way and having lost all I could for three years look forward to seeing what little they have left being taken by the authorities as they are properly exposed for what they are.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs took the first step and started the Investigation after being informed and the judgement was obvious. Fraud, malpractice on every level and other activities which were handed over to the respective legal bodies followed. Judgement imminent on many of these matters, but still their lie goes on…

This NGO and its staff who mock the ongoing ΣΔΟΕ serious financial investigation, and who ridiculed the Justice system for so long can claim persecution all they like in front of the Judges and explain to them why they have abused their positions as they have for so long.

Still they slander and damage those who seek to show the truth about this Organisation and sector which is what hurts, and still they pretend they have done no wrong and that they are the victims…

Not yet sh*t for brains, but you will be. You can count on that.

Life… Thank god for just the one!

When I came to Greece I fell I love with it, I stayed in Exarheia and was subjected to what I believe to be the best and the worst of Greece. Its a hard country to adapt to, the language has your mouth having a nervous breakdown, the system is so wrong it needs to be taken outside and shot, and the problems are evident in many things but that’s why in many ways its so great. It has hope. It has promise and we all have the ability to actually try and achieve something good, as so many don’t.

I still believe in what it could be like here and I’m always humble enough to still say I’m learning, but while I have hope for myself and what I do somehow, I will never believe in anything ever again…

About Simon Rawicz

Hmmm, It is about me I suppose... Work hard die young seems to be the motto life's going to write on my coffin well before we agree on terms and conditions. I'm a 2D/3D Artist/Designer and Multi-media specialist by trade, I play guitar and write songs when I'm not wanting to vent my anger out on the system. If I occasionally do get time to do anything else I'd like to know about it... Meanwhile to free my mind of the many demons that stalk me, I write stuff, your reading it so I don't need to tell you any more than that surely...!

One Response to Belief…What are you stupid enough to believe in…?

  1. Reblogged this on The world according to fckdup athens. and commented:

    Coming up to 4 years and what’s changed…?

    Not a lot, the court system is bogged down more than it was previously, the afore mentioned people still masquerade as something they are not and still few people care to do anything to make the system help them as they plead poverty, complain about social injustice and blame the Germans for the problems naw facing a Country which allowed this systematic abuse of the economy to prevail.

    Blame them for the War, not the current state of Greece. Ignorant greedy halfwit petty minded scum did this to Greece.

    The loan Shark turning up on the doorstep was inevitable…
