  7. ============================================================================================
  9. Greetings world, this is the first press release by #OpGreece. We want to raise awareness of the critical situation in Greece, and about our existence. We want to raise the awareness not only of Greeks within Greece, but Greek expatriates, you who are of Greek descent and the entire world.
  11. We all saw the UC spray cop right? And the Tony Bologna spraying of young women in New York Yes? Well if that shocked you, here it is a daily routine. Greek citizens who peacefully protest receive this treatment almost EVERY week yet no one is responding to the acts of violence happening in this country.
  13. Last month Greek police sprayed disabled people in wheel chairs, two months ago they attacked civilians who were only protesting peacefully - just walking and not even shouting - The police were throwing tear gas and stones and hitting them with sticks and iron rods.   Three months ago the same thing and even hit reporters and whoever held a camera.
  15. Now, as we write these words, the internet is being threatened by Makis Voridis, a person who in the 70's and 80's belonged into a group similar to KKK and is currently a member of the fascist party in Greece. Voridis is now in charge of the internet. A week after his "election" (he was elected by politicians and not by the people), blogs for freedom of speech were shut down, accounts on Facebook - mainly activists, anons, anarchists, communists and trolls - were deleted. Now Voridis and his cronies are planning to censor all the ISP's so they will know when an "act of terrorism" is being generated by the public. Any political discourse that is not their flavor of fascism is considered "TERRORISM"
  16. So yeah, this is Greece right now.
  18. We need your help!

  57. So what is really going on in Greece right now? Why all this violence?
  59. It all started when the ex Prime-Minister of Greece George Papandreou started to cut off the people's payments and adding more austerity measures. The media helped spread a propaganda as if the people of Greece really had to do something with the money the government used for their own benefits.
  60. NO. The Greek citizens have been poor for almost 2 years now and they're getting poorer day by day.
  61. The government spend this money in luxury products such as cars, houses and land.
