I spent some time talking a protester at the Occupy camp I was at and he'd recently come to the United States from Greece. His other half was an
American who did refugee work in Africa which is how they met and he came here. He'd been in some of that unrest over there and may have been at the
one in the video for all I know. If that's a year ago, the timing would be right.
Anyway, he'd said the Greek cops were far far worse than anything we'd seen here and were just outright sadistic. He'd also said the videos don't
capture the true sense of being there. It's worse. I found the discussion with him and the insight into the tactics and experience of the European and
Greek authorities very interesting and useful.
I hope the Greeks find a way out of the mess they're in without losing everything in the process. Their hole is very deep for such a small nation. The
problem is, their nation is so very important in historical and cultural terms. It isn't like some bush republic in Africa the world can blow off
