"unkempt dirty thugs" !!!!!!!
I mean, one feels like reacting angrily to such posts, until one suddenly stumbles upon phrases like this.
Life is beautiful; and it has humour, too :-)
A happy Sunday to everyone.

Two points relating to the message below:
• One questions how the announcement below is fitting for this list, as it is exclusively political in content for all its righteous indignation.
• If it is a fitting announcement, then this indignation is quite selective: for a number of years in Greece (Left-)Fascist violence has been continuous, murderous and has been given cover by SYRIZA, the major opposition party. This violence has included the burning of bookstores (and the beating of their employees by unkempt, dirty thugs), bombings and arson (and subsequent destruction of some of the oldest buildings of the center of Athens), and of course the murder of three Marfin Bank employees, in a fire that was deliberately set. Which brings to mind Heinrich Heine's distich, "Where books are burned, there they also will burn people."

interesting discussion with Neni Panourgia, an anthropologist who

The discussion will focus on the rise of the Neo-Nazi party of Golden
Dawn in Greece as well as in the diaspora and the protests planned in
Europe and in the U.S. on January 19 in solidarity with the
ATHENSANTIFA19JAN call for an International Day of Action against
