Televizing The (Second) Greek Revolution - Three Live Streams From Syntagma Square

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Greece's D-Day has arrived: June 15 may soon be the 2011 equivalent of May 6, 2010 when the reaction to the realization that Greece was insolvent hit the population, together with a peak in hostilities, not to mention the US market flash crashing. In addition to a general strike, thousands are already packing the central Syntagma square in Athens, where MPa have started congregating to commence deliberations on the Troica's mid-term fiscal proposal. Already there has been tear gas fired at protesters who are gradually shifting away from their peaceful posture and slowly becoming unruly. Below is a live feed of the square as well as a link to an English live blog following up to the minute events.

11:30 am Thousands gather at the rally of public and private sector labour unions GESEE & ADEDY at Pedio toy Areos Park.

Athens Metro Station ‘Evaggelismos’ is closed. The metro passes through but passengers can not get on or out.

11:40 Greek media decided to cancel their strike after 12:00 at noon time – Greeks want information on such important day, right!?

PM Papandreou will hold an extraordinary meeting with President
Papoulias at 1 pm. He will reportedly call another meeting with
political leaders to seek consensus for the Mid-Term Package.

11:55 Thousands Boos were heard when the Prime Minister’s convoy headed to PM’s manor.

Protesters hurled eggs, bitter oranges and bottles with water over the riot-police ‘wall’ to the President’s convoy

The rally organized by Greek Communist Party labour union PAME is heading to the Parliament. Estimated more than 15,000 people.

12:30 Tension as protesters tried to push down the ‘iron blockade’. They hurl water bottles over the blockade to riot policemen.

For 21 days the protests were peaceful. However the ‘iron &
plexiglass wall’ seems to have the same effect as a piece of a red cloth
has on a bull.

12:35 Tear gas against protesters attacking the iron blockade – protesters very very angry
Σ?νταγμα 15062011 by cosmogr

12:38 Athens Stock Exchange down -3.65% – It cannot stand the rapid

scenarios about early elections and the unprecedented protests in the
city center.

protesters’ groups

video – earlier: protesters attack the iron blockade

13:10 Big tension at Rigilis Sq – Tear gas – Protesters tried to
break through riot police – Police and protesters chase each other

PM Papandreou meeting with the President ” National effort is needed,
we are in crucial historical moment. National consensus is needed. I am
in contact with political leaders on this. We will continue with
responsibility to bring the country out from the crisis”.

Scenarios speak of the establishment of a broader governement , after Friday, with the participation of all political parties.

13:16 small scale riots hooded, indignants, far-leftists and
far-rights, riot police, tear gas right in front of the Parliament.
Efforts to push away the hooded – provocation to spoil the peaceful
protest???

13:46 Still tension – Indignant Greeks chase hooded Greeks hurling
molotof cocktails. Sticky air due to exessive use of tear gas in front
of the Parliament.

Thousands? It looks moore like several hundred. Not much for a country on the brink.

I suggest the rest of the population is on its way to Switzerland to save their blaggged and stolen proceeds. They should drive to Brussels instead and give it all back to where it belongs!

Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. If these savages try to revolt due to the ongoing economic upheaval, government has already prepared contingency plans destined to cope with this scenario. Educate yourselves about the NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD 51:

"...Purpose

(1) This directive establishes a comprehensive national policy on the continuity of Federal Government structures and operations and a single National Continuity Coordinator responsible for coordinating the development and implementation of Federal continuity policies. This policy establishes "National Essential Functions," prescribes continuity requirements for all executive departments and agencies, and provides guidance for State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector organizations in order to ensure a comprehensive and integrated national continuity program that will enhance the credibility of our national security posture and enable a more rapid and effective response to and recovery from a national emergency...

...(b) "Catastrophic Emergency" means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions;..."

They should take you along. Before the EU-parliament you can explain to all constituents how to steal from the people, set up some random and useless committee for the preservation of some non-existing lake and collect some fine proceeds and early retirement for all your hard work. And yes, do not pay your taxes. That is the greek way.

From an European perspective...this is not unusual fro Greece.Neither is defaulting.The other country that comes to mind is Argentina.As long as it´s teargas and fists and billyclubs -it´s quite normal and to be expected.

You should look for live fire and KIA´s and/or potential military takeover before becoming overly concerned.

After all the Greek way of love is equal to Mexican cornholing...

Its government debt not personal debt.

They're all a bunch of fucking hypocrites, just like you. People always get the leaders they deserve. For decades Greek and other European working classes were grateful for all the entitlement programs, social safety nets, special status for unions, crony jobs and special arrangements that kept the "neoliberal agenda" out of Greece (and the rest of socialist Europe). They wanted politicians who could "get things done for the little man". Nobody ever asked how it worked. Any European politician who tried to point it out, anyone who dared to argue for sound money, austerity and reform at a time when it might have worked, was widely derided as a lunatic, a neoliberal fanatic, an anti-social element "who wanted to go back to the 19th century" etcetera. In fact, Europeans STILL haven't learned the lesson about what kind of politician is to be distrusted. They don't WANT to learn. Unlike in the US, the opposition in Europe today consists largely of commie and fascist fucks who will go well beyond PASOK in their misgovernment. And unlike in the US, the ones who are really going to get screwed, the middle class, are not the ones you see in the street. So go play your violin elsewhere.

I've heard the same shit all my life. Everybody tried to get everything from the government and everybody avoided paying taxes. In personal debates, you'd hear about "how everybody else is doing it too". If you didn't get what you want, you'd go to your uncle who was a friend with the brother of the local political alligator. Now the stench is all in the open and "the people" feel that they have been screwed by corrupt politicians. That's just pathetic and that's why they'll keep digging their own grave by voting for worse and worse politicians. It's too bad for the few who tried to make and save some money the honest way. But once again, those are not the ones you see protesting in Greece.

That's why Greece is first and worst. In that country, more than in any other, the "good" guys are much less than 95%. Again, there is scarcely a country in the European Union where the little guy was so eager to play the game in his own small way: I think the informal economy and abuse of government benefits were even more widespread than in Italy or in Belgium. Still if they had confronted the unions and privileged groups (government workers, teachers & selected professional groups, professionally unemployed, in short the kind of people who are out striking and protesting austerity today) and cleaned up their own act say a decade ago, the protest would have been equally violent but EU-style austerity might have actually had a chance of working. If you can't understand this aspect of the story (and like I said, my fear is that many Greeks don't want to get it), you can never fully appreciate the situation Greece is in. For one, I think this sets Greece apart from a less socialist, pseudo-market country like Ireland or Iceland, where the benefits from the boom years really did flow disproportionately to the financial sector, but where the population is coolheaded, less corrupt itself and more likely to really do the right thing. Part of which sadly IS to "suck it up and cope", if I may paraphrase our dear old friend Charlie Munger.

Yes! many Greeks were living high on the hog working for the government, but the rest in the private sector were struggling. Don't paint everyone with the same brush.

Yes! Greeks don't pay their taxes as a protest because it goes to the non-productive gov. sector. Americans don't like taxes and the 16th amendment was voted on during Christmas by traitor politicians.

Greeks have brought democracy to the world and now are showing the world how to dismantle an oppressive corrupt government.

Austerity! Try to take away the iphone from your teen daughter and that's what you gonna get. Revolt. You are the one that create the monster. She will hate you for the rest of her life.

Americans and others should learn from this. I am sure that most zerohedgers do understand what's coming to the US.

Be pationate for the right causes. keep politicians, bankers and all in check. If not, revolt.

Note to the Greeks: Default, default, default join Iceland. Fastest growing economy in the planet by just fishing.

I agree. I used to feel major anger towards the banks and politicians but now mostly feel it towards my fellow Americans for allowing the banks to steal with abandon and for constantly reelecting the same cretins to local, state and federal office, e.g. Harry Reid - Thanks Nevadans...You can't blame a wolf for eating your sheep because after all, that's what they do. You blame yourself for not getting rid of the wolf so it can't eat your sheep to begin with.

Let's not even talk about the fact that Americans don't give two shits about anything except for Final 4, football, Lady GaGa or retarded social issues such as gay marriage or abortion. A banker can literally steal the treasury blind and that seems to be acceptable to most Americans but tell us that we can't marry our gay lover or terminate an unwanted pregnancy and absolutely NOTHING will motivate us faster than that to get off the couch and march on our state capital. Americans are ridiculous and I am included in that generalization myself. We ALL deserve what's coming to us.

Nevada resident here. I voted for Tarkanian in the primary. I think most wanted Reid gone and would have gone the route of choosing a Sandoval ( fiscally conservative-governor) type figure for the Senate. Unfortunately, Angle didn't present herself very well, and that put some independents in the Reid camp. that and the unions went all-out in driving people union members in droves to the polls. I voted for Angle anyhow, and sandoval, and the conservative representative in the US House (who won).

Political situation in this state does stink, but on the ground it seems like it's starting to shift toard limited govt and fiscal conservative. more the latter, which leads to the former.

Whereas in the US, the electorate make careful, finely balanced, evaluations of the merits and demerits of each candidate and elect only the finest and most competent representatives with the most well-thought out and viable policies?  Or do they just vote for the candidate who promises the most 'Hope and Change' and the largest handouts to each voting constituency?

If the bomb ever blows up in Europe, the politicians that will benefit most, will likely consist of an increasingly "colorful" series of communist or nationalist moonbats. The kind of populists who blame it all on the banks and especially on the previous populists. People here don't want free market reforms, they want a Fuhrer who can make Big Government work and they will give him all the powers he requests. If the bomb explodes in the US, at least there is a Tea Party, a libertarian party and a guy like Ron Paul. I can see a future where the US population simply REJECTS the idea of Big Government, instead of trying to make it work. The US will go back to its basics of limited government. The day I see top-level politicians like that in Europe, I'll change my tune.

Listen - the "Europe=Socialist, US = Capitalist" dichotomy is as false and manufactured as the Dems vs Repubs distinction.  Sure, there may be some differences, but you'd have trouble sliding a cigarette paper into the gap between both sides.  

Contrary to what proponents of this paradigm would have you believe, Europe is not a hotbed of rampant socialism any more that the US with it's millions supported directly or indirectly by Government spending is a capitalist paradise.

You will not find a more committed small Government libertarian than myself, but I see no politician or party in the US with a snowball's chance in hell of rolling back the state.  Unless you call $38 billion of 'Cuts' in a $3 trillion budget a meaningful cut.

Well of course nothing is black and white but it's certainly not a manufactured difference. Even today the public debate in the US is already infused with the right kind of ideas. Of course they won't be put into practice until some real disaster strikes, but as a libertarian you'll have a fighting chance in the US that just doesn't seem to exist in Europe. A Tea Party in Europe, regardless of whether they can avoid disaster or just clean up the debris afterwards, seems completely impossible here. When it comes to "outsider" politics, there's mainly various breeds and blends of communism and nationalism -- at least in Southern Europe, which is what we were talking about here.

Northern opposition parties like True Finns, Geert Wilders or Vlaams Belang are "outsider" enough and eurosceptic without being "crazy" or coming straight from the gutter. But even they are often ambiguous on fundamental economic alignment. They don't walk the walk, but they don't even talk the talk either. If you're like me (a European libertarian), there's really no match. European liberal parties (which used to be more like American libertarianism until a few decades ago) are all but dead and like I said, most serious right wing parties are fairly ambiguous on their support for true free market politics.

"You are fucking delusional mate."

Hey Quintus....What have the Greeks produced the last 150 years where their profits exceeds their expenditures?

Their dependent generational mindsets are under the delusion caused by the sick notion that mothers tits (statist government) will not run out of milk. Like any dependent child these Greek adolescents need to be weaned so they can go out into the world and learn how to produce something of value make a profit and earn their keep as all mature healthy adults try to do.

Victim and dependent mindsets never recover because the projection of blame is never on themselves which is the first place they should look. The Greek predicament is what the minds of it's people have caused and as a result of the peoples decisions they are feeling the pain of the consequences of their dependent childlike decisions. So go out there and take responsibility and create and produce and make a profit rather than acting out like a whining spoiled dependent child.

When one or many do the footwork they generally recover.

why am i a fucking hypocrite? Look, you seem like the kind of person who could flip out at any moment and go on a shooting spree so ill try to make this so simple even your tiny little brain will have a chance of understanding.

It takes 2 to tango. A borrower and a lender. are you still with me? havent confused you yet have i? Now, When bad loans (loans that never had a chance of being paid back) are created its becuase the borrower borrowed more than could afford to pay back and also becuase the lender lent more money than they should have. Both are at fault so both should wear the losses. The greeks are prepared to do what needs to be done but the lenders beleive they are "innocent victims" and should wear no losses at all despite the fact they are equally responsible. Thats the part most decent people disgree with, including me. I hardly see how this is hypocritical. Have you got that? good, now fuck off back under the rock that you came from.

Hmmm you seem quite the expert at this thing. Except my beef with these protesters is that the vast majority of them are not at all prepared to do what it takes. Most of these protesters understand the bit where they don't want to pay back their creditors; that's good. What's not so good, is that they don't understand all the other bits about reigning in government, rebuilding the tax base, reforming the labour system, unwinding the cradle-to-grave social system, etc. You know, cleaning up their pigsty. That's because a lot of them come from communist and nationalist backgrounds.

Anyways, this is my last response to you, because aside from being an obvious expert, you are also a moronic piss ant. If you were a German in the 1930s, you'd be ones of those guys wearing a Brown Shirt and saluting the new Fuhrer who you believe will lead the decent masses to a glorious liberation from their parasitic plutocratic overlords who caused the Weimar republic to collapse.

Very interesting exchange all around. Tight, angry, pissy, bitchy. Just like a group of anonymouse men. 

But, to the point, People do not get th egovt. they deserve. Governments, especially Demoncrazies have been "arranged", "Bought" or simply stuffed since they began. People are getting exactly the governments that the Model says they should have for that 2-3-4-5 years, whatever the local requirements.

The macro control is actually frighteningly tight as any boundary pusher (like me) who has suffered at the hands of that control knows only too well.

I kinda agree with HJ here.  Both are at fault.  Fine, the Greeks (in totatility) are ALL lazy Socialist bums.  Fine, we accept that premise. (I think there's actually more gray and tend to avoid broad generalizations of humans)  BUT WHY WERE THE GODDAMN FRENCH/GERMAN BANKS LENDING TO THEM AD NAUSEUM?!?  BOTH SHOULD SUFFER NOW.

Even the Chicago South Side drug dealers know when to cut-off a client before it's too late.  Don't need to calculate VaR or Probability of Defaults for that.  Dumbass bankers.  The onus is on the Distributors of Credit (just like blaming the U.S. borrowers for the housing bubble is a completely baseless argument).  IT'S THE BANK'S FAULT.  Borrowers will almost always take as much as they can get.

For f*cks sake, don't they have an acronym for this in banking?  K.Y.C  "Know Your Customer"  hahahah, go hire some more MBAs you genius bankers.

 

Edit:  I left out the Regulators.   Perhaps part of the problem is the decentralized banking regulation in Europe (a similar problem in USA).  What exactly are these regulators regulating?

DUH they did that on purpose. This way, they transfer their assets (loans to an insolvent clique of usurpers at the head of the greek society) to the public debt of the german people, who are scared into doing this with threats of a "systemic collapse". Hell it worked in the "land of the free" so why not in europe they figured. Until this week, it did work. Right now you see politicians backpeddling on their previous dumb mistakes. A capitalist market MUST allow settlement. If that means paying off on stupid mistakes, so be it.

"The Greeks (in totalitaity) are ALL lazy Socialist bums"

Right... what a simplistic idea. Did you pick that up from the WSJ teleprompter? I guess those thousands of years of culture in the US of A spawned a much better organisation to run society? In reality it's in the USA where losses are "socialised". Your people didn't even figure out yet, they've already been enslaved.

Instead they're still listening to idiots like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9pTxdCAffM

"Equality of misery"? On ZeroHedge, we read about some guys in a bankrupt country protesting their government or even throwing a Molotov cocktail at parliament, so we automatically think they must be the good guys. Because governments are always bad and "the people" are always good.

Truth is: at least in a country like Greece and also in my own, a major problem that needs to be tackled IS in fact the irresponsible mentality of the inhabitants. Especially the unionist cretins you see protesting today. The cheap credit provided by the eurosystem had different consequences in different places. In Greece and other PIGS and Belgium, the borrowing was much less related to chronic military overspending or to "acute" causes, such as cleaning up a housing bubble or bailing out an insolvent banking system. More than in other places, the debt is related to the cost of an unsustainable system of social entitlements. These countries were slowly tearing themselves apart even before the euro, just look at Italy's pre-euro exchange rate to the Deutschmark. Having access to cheap loans in these countries allowed insolvency merely to be postponed. The situation cannot be resolved only by default or even by leaving the euro and going through a fixed devaluation. Those are only technical (and by now necessary) measures that buy more time. What is also needed is true austerity, giving up privileges etc and that's precisely what these retarded hypocrites are protesting against.

Only abroad for some reason. Even back in the Great Famine, there was little resistance to having to export food commodities and survive on a staple that was rotten to obey the Corn Laws AKA 1st Malthusian Experiment.

The resistance developed in force when Irish survivors of the 1840s Great Famine emigrated to the US and became very politically organised and created wealth. Thats how the Fenian movement developed.

Today the people are still full of Apathy here and accept the new version of the Corn Laws, viz. the European Union.

IRA was probably funded by the British government and was filled with MI5 agents. This is the way things work.

a lot of times when you have organizations like this, you will have true blue believers. people that are authentic, that truely believe in what they are fighting for. the system uses people like this to achieve their overall goals. so take for example. some true blue believer, decides he is going to bomb something, the british intel people stand by and let it happen. because? it serves their purposes. when your enemy is doing something that helps you, then you let them. sometimes the agent provocateurs don't have to do anything to have their goals achieved. sometimes of course, they have to make it happen one way or the other.

the same thing happens all over the world. arabs, for example, sometimes probably wonder why nothing good ever seems to come their way. there is a reason for this.

State sponsored agent provocateurs being given big sticks by the police. Note - the provocateurs are more than likely police themselves. They are trying their best to make the protest turn violent so they can easily descredit it.

this little clip provides anyone with a bird's eye view of what true resistance looks like and the inherent cost involved. The cities are reduced to ruins and people are displaced and killed and  they go hungry. This is what wars for independence look like ladies and gentlemen. make no mistake about it. it is not pretty. it is costly and liberty is not cheaply won. Are the greeks ready to pay such a cost? I think not.

Like us, their men have been feminized and their culure destroyed and they are happy with the crumbs that fall off of the tables of their slave owners.
