About the Greek Protests

I wanted to summerise what this Greek crisis is all about at the very beginning, before it’s too late. Wikipedia says:

The 2010–12 Greek protests were a series of demonstrations and general strikes taking place across Greece. The protests, which began on 5 May 2010, were sparked by plans to cut public spending and raise taxes as austerity measures in exchange for a €110 billion bail-out, aimed at solving the 2010–2011 Greek debt crisis. Three people were killed in the protests of 5 May, one of the largest in Greece since 1973.

Even though things looked pretty bad, violence happened mainly in Athens, the nation’s capital. Major cities, like Thessaloniki, didn’t see much of it.

But everyone is effected by the crisis. How deep is this problem? That’s what the film ‘Greece: Unleashed’ will try to figure out.
