People are angry.
Angry at bad politicians who are stealing their money, angry at bankers asking them to pay off their loans, angry at journalists for being corrupted, angry at “foreign powers” for wanting to destroy Greece, angry at their neighbor for being their neighbor. At some point the reason for all the anger stops having importance and what’s left is the process of setting it free. While thousands of Greeks were taking the streets of Athens and other big cities today to protest the really harsh austerity measures, others were organising a protest against the shutting down of a well known Greek torrent tracker.
The pictures from Athens speak for themselves. A nationwide strike was imposed, and thousands of people were marching throught the central streets, today joined by striking policemen as well. In the meantime, small numbers of anarchists set fire to a couple of cars as well as banks and hotel entrances. Twitter was buzzing this morning with reports about unprovoked use of teargas from policemen which led many old and young people having breathing problems. This happening three months since minister of public protection mr. Chrisichoidis promised that use of teargas from police, which every few weeks make city centers look like the front of a chemical war, will be banned.
It’s not just a financial crisis what we live. Causes should be searched deeper into the sociaty. In case we want to be done with it.
