My Friend Yanis, The Greek Minister Of Finance | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

#ReturnToFreedom | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

After 2 years of living underground and out of the public eye, the time has finally come for me to get ready for my journey back to freedom. The journey won’t be easy, and will require a lot of work to build widespread support. This is the reason for making this appeal to create teams for the ongoing collaborative effort needed in order to make this happen.

Circular economy could create half a million UK jobs | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
