    After fleeing war infested Syria less than a year ago, reaching Greece and living for 9 months on the streets and squares of Athens, Syrian civilians camped on Nov.19th across the Greek Parliament demanding to be recognized as refugees of war and given their humanitarian rights and ease of safe access to the rest of Europe. Their protest escalated, and most of them were on hunger strike. With time clicking away dozens had already been hospitalized. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Λιγότερο από ένα χρόνο ύστερα από την φυγή τους από την Συρία σε πόλεμο, επιβιώνοντας στους δρόμους και πάρκα της Αθήνας, Σύριοι άμαχοι κατασκηνώσαν στις 19 Νοεμβρ. απέναντι από την Ελληνική Βουλή απαιτώντας να αναγνωριστούν ως πρόσφυγες πολέμου, να τους αποδωθούν τα ανθρωπιστικά δικαιώματα τους και ελεύθερη και ασφαλή μετακίνηση στην υπόλοιπη Ευρώπη. Κλιμακώνοντας την διαμαρτυρία τους ορισμένοι πραγματοποιούσαν απεργία πείνας. Με τον χρόνο να κυλά δεκάδες είχαν προσκομιστεί στο νοσοκομείο. -------------------------------------------------------------------- an 'absent frames' film, cc2014

          Syntagma Sqaure, the political centre of Athens. Site of many demonstrations against the austerity policy imposed on Greek governments by international creditors, above all the Troika of IMF, European Commission, and European Central Bank. During my recent week-long stay in the city in early May, there were two major demonstrations in the square and the surrounding streets. The metro station Syntagma was closed down both times, whether for security reasons or to make it more difficult for protestors to get there. The German government as the major European power is especially hated by many Greeks, as posters of German Chancellor Angela Merkel dressed in a Nazi uniform and with Hitler mustache make abundantly clear. The soundscape of this video is from one of those demos, the collage of Metro trains reflecting the contradiction between where the country is supposed to go but can't (the mirage of economic growth through cutbacks) and where the country actually finds itself - stuck and not going anywhere. Unlike military power and aggression, economic power remains largely invisible, and its consequences are simply blamed on the victims.

(ATHENS, GREECE) 4 April 2012 Dimitris Christoula's public suicide in Syntagma square triggered the presence of thousands out in the streets again protesting against the savage austerity measures taken by an indifferent-to-its-people government, which have been driving, systematically, Greeks of all ages to suicide. Greece's suicide rate has reached a pan-European record high, with experts attributing the rise to the country's economic crisis and painful austerity measures.

                    More than 100-thousand people took the streets today (Wednesday 26 of September 2012) in Athens, in order to protest against the new austerity measures that the Greek Government is planning to take. After about 2:30 hours in the protest, masked youth clashed with riot police, throwing tear gas, chemicals, stones and molotov cocktails to each other. Πάνω από 100000 πολίτες διαδήλωσαν την Τετάρτη 26 Σεπτεμβρίου 2012 στην Αθήνα ενάντια στο νέο πακέτο μέτρων λιτότητας που είναι έτοιμη να λάβει η ελληνική κυβέρνηση. Κατά τη 13:30 περίπου 500 διαδηλωτές συγκρούστηκαν με αστυνομικές δυνάμεις πετώντας τους βόμβες μολότοφ και πέτρες, ενώ τα ΜΑΤ αντέδρασαν πετώντας δακρυγόνα και χημικά στο πλήθος και...επιστρέφοντας τις πέτρες.
