Are riots really the best way to protest your disagreement with your politicians? Please check out these pictures of the riots from the signing of the austerity bill.

Check out this site for a slideshow of the photos.

I say no… businesses are constantly destroyed, livelihoods in danger and people are killed all the time. We must as a society speak out against corrupt politicians but riot after riot will not do the trick. 

Riots are a great tool to use to get the world attention in order to address political injustices but everyone knows about Greece! Every country is aware of the problems in Greece…

Although the riots provide some entertainment value they are dangerous, naive and ineffective. 

 

Look to Jeff’s articles on the austerity bill to see why the riots are occurring!
