For the 12th day in a row, protesters continue to make their voices heard in Athens. There are reports of 50,000 to 500,000 (likely closer to the former) protesting in Syntagma Square this evening, against the government program of austerity measures, and the current political situation.

Protesters have been camped out here all week, similar to the situation in Spain in the run up to their regional elections.

Whether or not they'll have any impact on the implementation of the country's latest

spain has protested before with no results.

will this do any good it seems they are taking a page from the protests in N.Africa Hold out until they give into our demands.

I wonder is this a fakebook protest with a master controlling the people.

or is this really the people coming together for the good of their country?

But is protesting really such a good thing? To me, it always seems to end in innocent people being hurt or killed...

Surely there are more subtle ways these people can come together to subvert the system or to reject unfair laws put in place? I guess its hard for me to say, being on the other side of the world and all...

I recall watching the fall of the wall in 1989. This is how it had to happen then, and this is how real change will have to happen now, I am thinking. People will get hurt, but there is no other way with Governments. The masses seem to be the only way.

Stop buying crap from mega-corporations that rape the resources of everyone on Earth. Oh and they also apply slavery tactics in places like Malaysia and China (and many many other locations). And how much pollution do their illegal dumping practices create? How many accidents have happened? How many nations are being destroyed?

Do you really wanna support that? Stop buying that crap.

The true vote is with our $, if you pay your local farmers market for food, you vote for local fresh produce.
If you pay your local shopping market for food, you vote for international globalization (EG: Slavery and Pollution and War etc).

Stop buying so much gas. Conserve a little more. Try to find ways to stop using it, or alternatives.
Don't use so much electricity. Walk somewhere or ride a bike next time if it's nearby.

The only real way to protest is with your $. You have to stop buying their garbage.

That will stop this crap right in it's tracks. Oh it will be rough sure, but it will work. (Granted enough people followed the idea - critical mass).

Greece has been having protests daily since when, you know what and you know who...

it has been escalating in terms of protests, at first started off quite violent, but its seems the greeks are waking up and not allowing anarchists to play the roles of firestarters and justify a brutal retaliation by government forces.

that imo is gonna be the key to the worldwide protests wich are happening and soon will be trully global

beware of the agent provocateurs

there really should be mass protests in ALL major
cities in the world. The banks have turned the
entire world into slaves and they are waking up
by the millions. One day there will be a world
revolution and it WON'T have anything to
do with a NWO owned by banks and corporations.
I can smell it on the horizon

It smells like FREEDOM !!!

It smells like suppression. While our leaders condemn the brutal crackdown of revolutions in countries like Syria and Libya, they will not spare any means to keep us all under control. The MSM has greatly helped them to make us swallow austerity measures while those responsible for this crisis are left unpunished. As soon as things turn really sour and people feel like having too little left to sit idly by and rise up against those that claim but do not have the people's best interest at heart, they will swiftly deal with us.

Precautionary measures have been taken over the past decades and some of them have been actively implemented during 2000s. However, there is a bigger chance things won't come that far. I reckon that drafting the young men of Western nations and sending them to war in foreign lands is considered a viable solution to prevent revolutions from happening.

Is this a sockpuppet account?

youre exactly right their system of false paper money is crumbling, weather that is their plan or not who knows.

but their new goal is clearly POWER and CONTROL of the masses.

they had that control through money and debt now, what will be the next move.

I feel it can only come to a stalemate and TPTB have no problems shooting and killing unarmed peaceful people only seeking their true freedom not the fallacy of freedom projected by today's main stream.
