Teenage Riots in Athens (Part 3/3)

Teens in Athens, Greece take to the streets with rocks and molotov cocktails to protest the government and its large-scale austerity measures. The Greek parliament meets to vote on proposed austerity measures while outside their society polarizes itself. All pretences of togetherness vanish as the lines between authority figures and protesters are blurred, leading to street battles and, ultimately, one man’s death.

  6. Do you think ppl here are sleeping 24/7 in contrast to USA? Sure the violence isnt solving anything, i am not defending that, what i am saying is the people actualy have little fault in all this, and they are the ones that will pay.

  7. Sure dude thats true. But the current crysis has almost nothing to do with working hard or not, its far more complex and money oriented than that. We greeks are certainly not the hardest working ppl, but that has little to nothing to do with this.
