25th of March is the date that Greece celebrates
its independence from the Ottoman Empire
listening to the Nationalistic paranoia on the streets today was a strange wake-up call
because in fact Greece has nothing much to celebrate.
Certainly not the fact that we are faced with a dreary election, in which the two main parties participate with their worst leaders in years. An election which is really the last thing a country in such deep trouble needs.
maybe the only thing worth celebrating is the splendid t-shirt weather
which made me take out these 25th January Arab Spring t-shirts bought in Tahrir square,
celebrating the hoped independence of Egypt.
I cant help but thinking that a revolution might be our only hope.
