December 2009 protests[edit]

maybe add a section about the protests that turned to rioting on the anniversary of the shooting. these protests and riots are currently ongoing —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.168.198.40 (talk) 09:10, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Patronizing title[edit]

They are violent protests. Calling them riots is borderline racist. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.74.254.99 (talk) 17:36, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Should be renamed to 2008 civil unrest in Greece just like other articles. [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.10.51.21 (talk) 00:36, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Too much of the article reads like PR material for the Greek government and the Greek media. Anyone involved with Indymedia and other alternative information networks were able to learn pretty quickly how biased the Greek mainstream media were in favour of the police, initially reporting every lies the two officers used to justify their actions, until a youtube video was released which showed the officers weren't attack by a gang of youths. It was known one Greek broadcast TV station doctored that footage by adding sounds of bottles breaking to aid the police defence. And, also, there was no mention, explicitly, of the role the Golden Dawn played in attacking demonstrations violently, often with support of the police. There were photos taken that show members of the far-right organisation standing among the ranks of riots police, unimpeded after they were photographed standing on a rooftop throwing rocks at demonstrators.---58.169.225.27 (talk) 09:23, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

"borderline racist" I am pretty sure you aren't really aware of what the word "racist" means... 194.219.210.36 (talk) 17:25, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
