We Are An Image From the Future
The Greek Revolt of December 2008
A.G.Schwarz & T. Sagris 2010 392p 9 x 6
On December 6, 2008, the city of Athens exploded as people took to the streets to demonstrate their rage over the murder of fifteen-year-old Alexis Grigoropoulos, bringing business as usual to a screeching, burning halt for three breathtaking weeks. This is the first book to delve into the Greek December and its aftermath, in the words of those who witnessed and participated in it. Interviews and personal reflections run alongside the communiqués and texts that circulated through the networks of revolt, shedding much-needed light — and dispelling destructive myths — on the real fabric of the Greek Left that made December possible.
