The il­lu­sion of pro­tec­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The gov­ern­ment con­tin­ues to in­di­cate that its mes­sage when it comes to protests is that any­thing goes, re­gard­less of the means, lo­ca­tion or con­se­quences. The left­ist-led gov­ern­ment ei­ther does not un­der­stand that provoca­tive tol­er­ance of such be­hav­ior only leads to more un­con­trolled es­ca­la­tions of vi­o­lence and ten­sions or it is be­ing held hostage by cer­tain po­lit­i­cal ob­ses­sions. What­ever the gov­ern­ment’s po­si­tion may be, it would be good per­haps for the po­lice to be given an ex­press man­date to stop pro­tect­ing the Par­lia­ment or other gov­ern­ment build­ings, so as not to cre­ate the il­lu­sion that they are pro­tected.
