A powerful doco focussing on Greece, courtesy of Jerome E. Roos at znet. Apart from the conflict scenes, some great shots of the flavour of direct (assembly) democracy in action, beyond parties and politicking.

  1. I agree with you about the flavour of direct democracy being shown here, all too briefly. I’d have liked to see much more about what these meetings are discussing, rather than the “spectacular” shots of fighting the cops. We know the system uses cops to provoke violence and retaliation. It would be nice to get beyond the demonstrators’ slogans to what they are proposing.
