The End of an Era Is Now! ‘Monday Demonstrations’ Show: Germans Demand Jobs, Recovery  

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche

The chairman of the Civil Rights Movement Solidarity party in Germany (Büso), issued this leaflet under the title “Get Rid of Hartz 4! Germany Needs 8 Million New Jobs.” The upsurge of demonstrations against the Social Democrat-led government’s austerity program, in a nation already convulsed by unemployment, shows that Germans are ready for the LaRouche program: physical economy and high-tech development, instead of radical ecologism and free-market misery.

by Jeffrey Steinberg and Michele Steinberg
