I wish I could understand the language.
I know enough to know though, this is not good.

Pretty disorganized riot. No beer tent, no brat and hot dog stands, not even any porta-potties around. Could have used some live music too.
Why do riots have to be so disorganized?edit on 21-3-2013 by rickymouse because: (no reason given)

What is most telling is that here, in the US, this is barely reported (outside of new media). The LameStreamMedia is all giddy over our Dear Leader visiting Israel and whether of not the Easter Bunny will make a White House appearance, the closing of Cypriot banks (with New Zealand close on Cyprus heels) nothing much is said.
As I have said on other threads. Cyprus is geographically small. A great place for a "trial" run on bank closures.
