Though violent protests in Greece are almost over, students are still showing their anger through other means.
Yesterday they interrupted the news bulletin in TV to send a message and to denounce publicly Alexander’s Grigoropoulos death.
Also they have put a banner in Athens Acropolis signalling a worldwide demonstration for tomorrow.
It seems that civil protests are starting now to have more importance rather than violent acts.
It’s not only the death of a youth in a policeman hands what have taken all these problems out at that time. Also there’s the right of the people to demonstrate, and the necessity of breathing and feeling free in a oppressive world.
Let’s remember the always-healing Bob Marley’s words:
“Why can’t we roam this open country?
Oh, why can’t we be what we wanna be?
We want to be free.”
If you’re reading that, I’ll meet you tomorrow at 3 o’clock, at the roadblock, with the forces of victory.
And, again, like Bob says, if the policeman asks you for it… “Hey, Mr. Cop! Ain’t got no birth certificate on me now.”
