Betreffend Krawalle in Griechenland

Brandgeruch und Tränengas überall

Die Medien ausserhalb Griechenlands berichten allerseits über die Krawalle der letzten Tage hier und den von einem Polizisten erschossenen Jugendlichen. Ich selber habe natürlich keine Informationen aus erster Hand, denn ich werde ganz sicher nicht losziehen, um mir die Krawalle anzuschauen. Eine Freundin von mir war allerdings zum Zeitpunkt der tödlichen Schüsse ca. 50 Meter vom Tatort entfernt - natürlich ohne etwas direkt mitzubekommen.

Was ich zu den Berichten der deutschsprachigen Presse beitragen kann sind einerseits ein paar Hintergrundinformationen, andererseits einiges, was hier in den Medien gezeigt wurde aber in den Agenturmeldungen nicht auftauchte.

The Dam Breaks

Go read it at Bollybutton's

Bollybutton has a very good post titled The Dam Breaks about what's happening with the riots in Greece, the reasons, backgrounds. Instead of writing something myself, I want to point you there. Go read it.

Athens Protests Information

Some good writeups, but not by me

Some people have written very well and very well thought articles about the riots and protests here in Athens, that were sparked by the murder of a 15 year old boy by a policeman. Myself I'm in no writing spirit currently, so I'll recommend some other stuff. In my last post I had already recommended The Dam Breaks from Bollybutton. Now she has added an account of her own visit to Athens' burnt center, titled Sights and Sounds of Athens.

Then we have Panagiotis article about some of the psychological backgrounds, both of the policeman with the nickname "Rambo" and of the society of parents: St. Nikolaos Night: No regrets.

There are probably a lot more. Thoughtful pieces by people who informed themselves, double checked their sources and their conscience.
