6 December 2019, location Exarcheia, Athens, Greece

Following a big protest of approximately 13.000 – 14.000 people in the center of Athens against police brutality, commemorating the murder of 15 years old kid Alexis Grigoropoulos by a policeman on that day back in 2008, the greek government imposed a martial law -in practice- in the neighbourhood of Exarcheia, where Alexis Grigoropoulos was murdered, brutally attacking and arresting dozens of people that dared to visit the place of the youngster’s death. Many witnesses and video reports depict the terror imposed by the government of “New Democracy” (ironically enough that’s the name of the governing party in Greece) and the greek riot police using the following tactic. Suddenly they would start running towards people brutally beating up and arresting anyone who would run and if they didn’t managed to catch anyone running, they would arrest people just standing and looking (in the city that we so often hear that democracy was born!). Here’s how democracy works as accurately portrayed in this video.

And here are some more video examples from that night, apart from the video above:

We often hear that cops are here to protect us, that they are just working people like the rest of us and when people complain, condemn, defy or react against police injustice and brutality, then they say that, no matter what, the policemen are the ones keeping the peace, the ones that we turn to when something bad happens to us. But the question is would you ask for help from the thug that just broke your jaw for no reason? And if -according to the cliché narrative- “not all cops are bad”, then why do the “good cops” tolerate and cover up the crimes of their colleagues? And how come their beatings, the infliction of injuries with their plastic bullets, their batons and their feasts, the asphyxiation caused by their tear gas, and the firing of their pistols is considered lawful if you are a riot policeman and you are getting paid to act as a criminal against other people, like the cops in the video above?
