A quick note on Greece

Today, workers in Greece staged their 11th general strike against the crippling austerity measures being imposed there.

There isn't much more that can be said on the situation in Greece that hasn't already been said. However by the same token I couldn't let what is happening there pass without comment. As such, I will refer people to my post on Greece and the need for "organised lawlessness", and also point people in the direction of the Occupied London blog for the most comprehensive coverage of events over there.

Needless to say, I offer my solidarity to everyone who is taking a stand in Greece. If they fail, the ruling class will know that they can get away with anything to shore up their own position, and we will see attacks elsewhere become more brutal. Victory to the working class!
