I could not resist yesterday's wordless post!
While the Parliament was voting for the new more strict measures of the Europeans (and lots of the members of parliament were refusing to vote for them and getting resigned or sent out by their leaders) the city centre of Athens was getting burnt by the KnownUnknown as they are called! Who are they? Protesters? Definitely not! There were thousands of people protesting outside the Parliament! Who are all these who broke into shops, stole lots of things like mobile phones and then burnt shops, banks and old cinemas? That destroyed all those beautiful aristocratic buildings that were a hundred years old and survived two World Wars? It is such a pity!Modern Greece eats up her children and her children destroy their country!
Thank you all for your comments. I slept very late last night watching the news and fearing that more riots will break out.
This morning the markets were happy that our Parliament voted for the new measures! Is that why all this is done? For the markets? And what about the people? Does anyone think of the people?There are already too many unemployed and homeless people in Greece. This number will rise since salaries and pensions will again be cut down and prices of services and products will go up! Who wants the Greek people poor , hungry, angry and devastated?
My friend Ian from England showed me this great blog of a British teacher of English living and working in Greece. He is also a photographer. He has followed the riots and has great photos for you to see.
Hopefully...we will survive!
