One week of riots in Greece

One week of riots,greece is wrecked :o

ATHENS, Greece A week after the police killing of a 15-year-old boy triggered riots across Greece, young protesters promised Saturday to remain on the streets until their concerns are addressed.

Greek youths taking part in protests every day since the boy's death are angry not just at the police but at an increasingly unpopular government and over economic issues.

Violent protests have injured at least 70 people and left hundreds of stores smashed and looted in the past week. More than 200 people have been arrested.

While most of the protesters have been peaceful, the tone of the demonstrations has been set by a violent fringe. And more young people have been willing to join them than in the past.

Several dozen students held a peaceful sit-down demonstration Saturday in Athens' central Syntagma Square. Early in the afternoon, a crowd of about 1,000 people gathered peacefully at Syntagma and another 1,000 demonstrated in the northern city of Thessaloniki. A vigil is set for the place and time - 9 p.m. local time (1900 GMT) - that 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos was fatally shot by a police officer.

One 16-year-old student at the sit-down demonstration, who gave only her first name, Veatriki, said young people her age felt their voices were being heard, immediately, when they smashed a shop window or a car.

She also said young people want to see the policemen involved in the shooting punished and the police disarmed.

The two officers involved in the boy's shooting were arrested. One was charged with murder and the other as an accomplice. The circumstances surrounding the shooting are unclear.

"We are entering a long period of economic crisis," said Giorgos Kyrtsos, publisher of the City Press and Free Sunday newspapers. "But there is also a deepening social crisis, combined with a weakened state. We are truly at a crossroads."

Kyrtsos, a conservative, was highly critical of the government's handling of the protests.

"This is the only government I remember that has managed to alienate both the rebellious youth and the law-and-order crowd. It has nothing to offer to anybody," he said.

Kyrtsos said the hard-core anarchists "number about 500 and certainly less than 1,000." They are joined in the protests "by an anti-social element, many of them soccer hooligans and by many young people who seek excitement but also feel a diffuse sense of frustration and of not being listened to."

Paris Kyriakides, 32, who described himself as an anarchist, said that attacks against banks, ministries, police stations and large chain stores were decided collectively, in assemblies.

Asked about the smashing and looting of small stores, he said they were "an aberration" in which "the poor and immigrants that are oppressed by the system" joined in.

"In the end, the violence that we use is minimal in comparison to the violence of the system uses, like the banks," Kyriakides said. He added that the protest movement was "a multifaceted one composed of many groups including students, anarchists, anti-government activists, communists, workers and immigrants...all these people who have experienced police violence and the violence of the system."

At the site where Grigoropoulos was shot, messages were posted on a wall. One read: "Those who trained the murderers will regret it." Scores of people came to leave flowers and pin messages to a notice board. A privately made street sign bearing the teenager's name was placed on the corner of the block.

Christmas shoppers cautiously returned to central Athens Saturday, but many shops boarded up their windows instead of replacing the glass, for fear of further violence.

Glazier Michalis Mentis said he had replaced several storefronts twice. "There's been a lot of work for us but it's very bad for businesses in general," Mentis said. "It's very lucky more people were not hurt, because there was so much damage."

This shows why America is full of do nothing pussies. When the government pisses on you in Europe, people roam the streets. But in the US, where the government has basically screwed you over 10 fold, people don't do shit. Seriously, people should riot more. That's what a civilized country does.

No, it's what savages who can't win by argument and reason do. Americans are more civilized.

More proof of what a typical anti-American Euro-moron Muslim sympathizer you are.
