ATHENS, GREECE (APRIL 21, 2015) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OF MAYORS HOLDING A MEETING AT THE ASSOCIATION OF GREEK MUNICIPALITIES (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) MAYOR OF MAROUSI AND PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION OF GREEK MUNICIPALITIES, GEORGE PATOULIS, SAYING: "For us this in an undemocratic action, as it was decided (by the government) to remove our funds without informing us, and without any dialogue, something that is unacceptable." MAYORS MEETING (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) GREEK DEPUTY FINANCE MINISTER, DIMITRIS MARDAS, SAYING: "This specific decision has been made. We did not mean to surprise you with this decision, (but) it is a decision that was taken after we saw that numbers in the budget were not turning out the way they should have." MAYOR OF PALAIO FALIRO, DIONYSIOS CHATZIDAKIS, SHOUTING DURING MEETING (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) MAYOR OF PALAIO FALIRO, DIONYSIOS CHATZIDAKIS, SAYING: "This action by the government shows that we are living in the last days of Pompeii. If money is being removed from the municipalities then we should be aware that the state will no longer function." MAYORS RAISING THEIR HANDS TO SPEAK DURING MEETING (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) MAYOR OF NEAPOLIS SIKEON, SIMOS DANILIDIS, SAYING: "This will block all the operations of the local municipality. There will be tragic consequences for hundreds of thousands of families in relation to social services, day care centres, and retirement homes. It will degrade and even destroy the operation of municipalities, and this is why we will oppose this in every way." PEOPLE WALKING OUTSIDE GREEK PARLIAMENT VARIOUS OF GREEK FLAG FLYING ON GREEK PARLIAMENT VARIOUS OF DOGS OUTSIDE GREEK PARLIAMENT VARIOUS OF PEOPLE WALKING ACROSS SQUARE (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) 43-YEAR-OLD GREEK BUSINESSMAN, HARIS PAPACHARALAMBOUS, SAYING: "It causes me great concern because when this government was elected it promised different things, a different kind of policy, and now we see that this other policy does not exist. He (the prime minister) is doing this as a last resort, because he can't do anything else because he cannot agree with the lenders, so he is forced to take the reserves and that's the worst thing he can do." (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) 49-YEAR-OLD GREEK PENSIONER, MARIANNA MATHEOU, SAYING: "Of course this is causing me concern, it is causing me great concern. This should not have happened." (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) 50-YEAR-OLD RETIRED ARMY OFFICER, IOANNIS MEGALIS, SAYING: "He (the prime minister) should have planned better and not to be forced to take money from the municipalities, the prefectures and the (pension) funds. The Bank of Greece is not trustworthy, because we have seen what the Bank of Greece does - it may be a central bank but it's not a bank serving (the interests) of Greece."
