Pre May 5th[edit]

There were protests and striked in the lead up to yesterday, some mentions of that needs to be expanded upon. I've madet he section, but asked for an expansion.Lihaas (talk)

Greek austerity measures[edit]

Shouldn't there be an article specifically for the measures themselves, explaining them in detail? That makes sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ItCanHappen (talkcontribs) 23:47, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Hm, I think that the best option would be to incorporate them into the Greek financial crisis article. BBC has a nice overview of the measures here.--Philly boy92 (talk) 16:31, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
And which article is that? I wanted something to link to from Gasoline and diesel usage and pricing‎. The crisis affects our gas prices.Vchimpanzee · talk · contributions · 16:39, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
Vchimpanzee, you could try the European sovereign debt crisis article. Gfcvoice (talk) 04:15, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
And how about more discussion on the specific items that the protesters are against? Possibly it is just a truth with the movement, but reading this article it sounds like their whole philosophy is to make somewhat childish but catchy and easily repeated phrases. What specifically do they think is unfair (for instance, do they think loans given the country were appropriated by corrupt government officials, which is why they don't want to pay them back)? As it is, from the outside, their concerns are unknown and people often put it down to the freeloader's feeling of entitlement. A cogent listing of their complaints, with supporting evidence of legitimacy, would go a long way to helping people understand.24.85.252.83 (talk) 20:58, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Major revisions are needed[edit]

After all, the protests were partly repsonsable for the resignation of the Papandreau government and have been ongoing since....Ericl (talk) 15:40, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Title is wrong. Says 2010–2011. Needs to say 2010–2012[edit]

The strikes and mass demonstrations continued on Feb 7 2012 despite downpours in Athens.

How about 2010s? it could go on for years.Ericl (talk) 22:29, 12 February 2012‎ (UTC)

Commentary[edit]

Greece has problems and officials say the handling is being maturely attenuated. Virginia (in the USA), has 1,500+ people living in tents in poor conditions and no access to courts (or dental care): plenty of access to being arrested. Incredible if you look at urban sprawl of VA using google. Here radio people, ie "Mark Levin" has said "it's not whether unionized government is inflating us all taking advantage of numbers: it's what citizens can do about it or whether it's too late!" -- John Hendrickson debguy

  • Oppose all - if the article is being maintained it is an uncontroversial technical move to bump up a year on a case by case basis. If the article isn't being maintained then that suggests the subject has died and the title has stuck at an accurate end date. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:36, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment' this is a massively malformed multimove request. Someone please correct it. -- 76.65.128.43 (talk) 03:42, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
