Another week of negotiations in Brussels and the tango between the Greek government and the Troika continues; albeit potentially coming to its climax this Sunday 5th July in the Greek’s referendum on the Troika’s latest proposal.  The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) regrets that the priorities of the Troika during the negotiations seem to focus solely on reducing Greek debt, rather than also issuing proposals aiming to improve the quality of life of the millions of Greeks currently living in poverty.
