Austerity pushing Europe into social and economic decline, says Red Cross:

“Many from the middle class have spiralled down to poverty. The amount of people depending on Red Cross food distributions in 22 of the surveyed countries has increased by 75% between 2009 and 2012. More people are getting poor, the poor are getting poorer.”

Sad thing is that many will read that and blame the Red Cross handouts for creating poverty and dependance. 

Austerity isn’t working.
