Riots in Athens

Some really amazing shots in this photo journal.
2008 Greek riots - The Big Picture - Boston.com


On the night of Saturday, December 6th, two Special Guards of the Greek police clashed with a small group of young men. The exact details of what took place are still unclear, but it is known that one of the Guards fired three shots, and one of those bullets caused the death of 15-year-old Alexander Grigoropoulos - whether the injury was made by an accidental ricochet or deliberate shot remains to be determined. The two Guards are now in jail awaiting trial, the shooter charged with homicide. This incident sparked an immediate and widespread response in the form of angry demonstrations and riots in many Greek cities that have continued at varying levels to this day - though dimming in intensity recently. Alexander's death appears to have been a catalyst, unleashing widespread Greek anger towards many issues - police mistreatment of protesters, unwelcome education reforms, economic stagnation, government corruption and more.

Don't want to hijack this thread but I've seen the same kind of photos from the Mumbai attacks.

Its crazy seeing the escalation of these riots. I can remember sitting on those stairs in the pics every night for a week, watching the kids hang out and skate the steps. Some of the people I was with would ask the kids if they knew where to get marijuana and they became so intimidated and afraid of the question, so to see this type of lawlessness is unbelievable.

John, we really should get a team on the go. You photograph, I write, Blake makes sure there's a killer afterparty waiting for us when all is said and done.

/\ Yeh I checked those out today at work. Some very powerful images.


A Kenyan boy screams as he sees kenyan policeman with a baton approach the door of his home in the Kibera slum of Nairobi 17 January 2008. Hundreds of police who had earlier clashed with supporters of Kenya's opposition leader Raila Odinga at the entrance of the slum moved into the shantytown and did a house to house search for protestors. (WALTER ASTRADA/AFP/Getty Images)


Prolly doesn't mean the same thing over in Kenya, but the address is 187.

You'd be surprised. North American rap has had an impact on the most random cultures.
