Athens protests: Syntagma Square on frontline of European austerity protests



Guardian Athenians used to stop off at Syntagma Square for the shopping, the shiny rows of upmarket boutiques. Now they arrive in their tens of thousands to protest. Swarming out of the metro station, they emerge into a village of tents, pamphleteers and a booming public address system. Since 25 May, when demonstrators first converged here, this has become an open-air concert – only one where bands have been supplanted by speakers and music swapped for an angry politics. On this square just below the Greek parliament and ringed by flashy hotels, thousands sit through speech after speech. Old-time socialists, American economists just passing through, members of the crowd: they each get three minutes with the mic, and most of them use the time alternatively to slag off the politicians and to egg on their fellow protesters.


So it looks like a revolution is due in Greece. The people have had enough and I can't blame them. The country is going to fail and fail hard eventually. These bailouts are only delaying the inevitable crash and pissing off the people of the country even more.

Don't think revolution will happen anytime soon. It would take a hell of a lot more for a revolution to be sucessful in western europe. Greeks are still far off from the tipping point.

But when their country goes to the dogs because of whoever has power then there is going to be a desire for a revolution.

Not sure what historty book you think you are reading, but...

Greece, just like a number of nations (Ireland, Spain, Portugal to name but three) have been spending huge sums modernising. Creating a first world education and health system costs a few quid.

These nations have been caught out. Blame the banks if you like. Blame the politicians who promised change. Blame the voters who demanded change. These nations have noone else to blame but their populations who celebrated when times were good, and wanted things to be even better. Now things have gone sour, they blame everyone but themselves.

Regards

Man, NOTHING happens in the financial sector without it being worked out loooong before. You think the Euro banks and IMF didn't know Greece wouldn't be able to keep up with other Euro countries ?? They knew that !! And they also knew they'd find themselves in this precise predicament. All this rioting and upheaval would have been foreseen. They can see it right now and still want harsher austerity measures before they approve Greece's next loan. How would you feel if you had to buy thinner sliced bread and your fridge is half empty, just because some fat pig bankers are slobbering over endebting your country for the next 300 years. I think the European bank was started by the IMF with this exact idea in mind. Ensure it's existence by the enslavement of the less fortunate. The Greeks have the right to defend themselves, as this is an enemy invasion without uniform. I think they'd be stupid NOT to riot....it's the least they should be doing.

I'm from one of those nations. For each € spent moderninizing, two went to someone's pocket with no return whatsoever. Quick example, millions were sent from the EU to re-train textile workers and change textile industries into something else. The money was pocketed by the owners, whilst the workers whistled to the side because they did not want to have any after work tuition and re-train into something else.

People have a huge share of the blame in the sense that they failed to keep a check on the so called 'politicians', in reality nothing but petty criminals, they also failed to assume leadership of their own lives, and got dragged into a life style that was being dictated by freely available credit, most gently provided by middle-men institutions like Visa and Mastercard, with the beneplacit of banks that were being criminally managed (like HBOS, RBS, and many others).

People are again failing in their role of keeping politicians in check and recalling thropugh whatever means are available.

Times are a changin'...indeed. The battle between good and evil has begun. What side will you be on? The bankers and their corrupt croney system of control smothered in dehumanization,eugenics and a culture of death and deception? I will be on the side of humanity and who yearns to break free of the chains of slavery and fulfill our destiny as a species.
