The Griots

"I was .. out walking toward Lycabettus, crossing for one more time the empty ''bombed'' streets, and the looted stores, having the most confused feelings. As the words of Mao ''Great unrest excellent condition'' suddenly hit my mind..." [1]

"What we face in Greece, it is not a simple reaction to the murdering of the young student Alexis Grigoropoulos, but something that we could describe as a general exegersis, somehow simular to what happened in Los Angeles in 96 or in Brixton in the 80's." [2]

"a group seen by an overwhelming majority in society as monstrous has itself labelled other people as monsters who can be attacked with impunity." [3]

I found the Foldedin Blogspot. Very interesting, though some of the translation was odd. The visuals are fantastic. We appear to be entering a new era, or will this fizzle out like '68?
