Greek pensioner’s public suicide sparks outrage across the country

His final words were reported to be “I won’t leave debts for my children” before killing himself in Syntagma Square near to the Greek parliament.

He left a letter saying, “I have no other way to react but to find a dignified end before I start sifting through garbage for food.” He also called for young people to rise up.
