I fear. I fear because you have no idea how angry we are and our anger has no outlet when police forces attack you as you reverently place a flower on the grass where the body of the 77-year-old pensioner who took his own life lay yesterday in Syntagma Square, just meters away from Greek Parliament.
His death was not the first. There have been many more these past two years, but the media always played these cases down with a peremptory «mentally imbalanced» name tag on each victim’s toe — if they happened to mention the incident at all, that is. Yesterday they couldn’t hide it. It was early in the morning and there were many passers-by; it was outside the parliamentary building; it was in the center of Syntagma, the square all eyes have turned to ever since this maelstrom started three years ago, where all protesters have gathered and been clubbed by batons every single time because they want to exercise their democratic right to voice their feelings.

The Greek Prime Minister’s new government faces a vote of confidence in parliament today after George Papandreou reshuffled his cabinet last week with insurgent socialist MPs and street protests opposed the latest austerity measures.

My site was down this morning. Problem solved in 5 minutes. For me that was the big “UP” or better say, the big “DOWN” today…. The new Pan-European appointment for Indignant Europeans is on the agenda, this Sunday.
