    A piece of a pamphlet is seen at the front of a Santander bank branch in the Andalusian capital of Seville January 16, 2012. Mass euro zone ratings downgrades are unlikely to shake up investors too much, but with Greek debt talks at an impasse, pressure has been loaded on the bloc to shore up its defences and glimmers of optimism from last week have been firmly doused. The piece of pamphlet reads "Those responsible for the crisis - Seeks". REUTERS/Marcelo del Pozo (SPAIN - Tags: BUSINESS SOCIETY)
