Athens 2011 and the Greek Revolution. Don’t believe the media.

The media is lying about events in Greece. Read these & support the people.


This is not so much a blog post than a collection of tweets from a good friend who resides in Athens. I’m posting it because people need to know about it. The more people who know about it, the better! So please share, email, re-blog, re-link, whatever.

These are posted in reverse chronological order because that is the way Twitter’s timeline works: the oldest are at the bottom, so start there and read upwards. It’s quite long; please stick with it to the end.

I suggest that if you want to stay informed, follow people who actually live in Athens. The timeline is updated every few minutes. This is merely a snapshot.

The vote in Athens is a Greek Tragedy, keeping the country imprisoned inside an unsuitable currency union and with unservicable debts.
