Europeans are starting to realize how sombre the situation is for the Greek people and sympathize with their plight, says Dimitris Papanikolaou, academic from Oxford University. The austerity measures imposed on Greece have done little to get the country out of debt and a lot to dismantle welfare provisions and workers' rights. The fight to prevent this, he says, is not Greece's alone - the Europe we joined is a Europe that ensures the minimum of dignified life for everyone.
