In­dif­fer­ence to vi­o­lence

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Those who re­sort to vi­o­lence and ex­treme forms of protest are get­ting in­creas­ingly out of con­trol. Nev­er­the­less, they have ev­ery rea­son to dis­play this kind of be­hav­ior. The rea­son is that the Greek state al­lows them to act with im­punity and leaves the prop­erty of the pub­lic and of in­di­vid­u­als un­pro­tected, ap­par­ently in­dif­fer­ent to such phe­nom­ena. The re­lax­ation of se­cu­rity mea­sures in vi­tal ar­eas around the Greek cap­i­tal has led to un­prece­dented ac­tiv­i­ties next to the Pres­i­den­tial and the Max­i­mos man­sions, for in­stance. This is a slip­pery slope that will never come to an end un­less there is some rudi­men­tary po­lit­i­cal willpower to im­pose law and or­der.
