    Seven months after the devastating forest fires that ravaged the prefecture of Ilia, SE Greece, the fire-stricken residents have requested procedures for receiving the financial aid that will allow them to rebuild or renovate their houses and restore damage to their properties be sped up. SYN (Coalition of the Radical Left) President Alexis Tsipras toured Wednesday the fire-hit areas and blasted the Government for "dealing with the problems of the fire-stricken prior to the elections." The problems in Ilia remained, stressed Tsipras, further arguing that such a disaster could not be dealt with "aspirins." Addressing TEI students later on, Tsipras argued that the problems plaguing Greeces tertiary education were still there, despite the fact that last years students struggles had been victorious. "The Government has not learned from that defeat," added Tsipras.
