My my...it's a really controversy theme...the question:do they support us or not..? My personal answer: NO!

The system is a mess! Everything's sucks! and we are stuck somewhere in the middle...coz.."we are still not mature enough so as to know what we want and make mature choices"...my answer to this...:BULLSHITS!

because we are teens that doesn't mean we are stupid,we can't see or judge morally and correctly...well,i think they just use that so to get rid of us...but they won't...

I think u all know or at least heard about the previous December's incidents..

"The 2008 Greek riots started on 6 December 2008, when Alexandros Grigoropoulos (Greek: Αλέξανδρος Γρηγορόπουλος), a 15-year-old student, was fatally shot by an unidentified policeman. The shooting occurred after an altercation between a police patrol and a small group of youths in the Exarcheia district of central Athens.
The death of Grigoropoulos resulted in large protests and demonstrations, which escalated to widespread rioting, with hundreds of rioters damaging property and engaging riot police with Molotov cocktails, stones and other objects. Demonstrations and rioting soon spread to several other citi es, including Thessaloniki, the country's second-largest city. Outside Greece, solidarity demonstrations, riots and, in some cases, clashes with local police also took place in a number of European cities including Istanbul, London, Paris, Brussels, Rome, Dublin, Berlin, Frankfurt, Madrid, Barcelona, Amsterdam, The Hague, Copenhagen, Bordeaux, Seville as well as Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, and the western Cypriot city of Paphos. Newspaper Kathimerini called the rioting "the worst Greece has seen since the restoration of democracy in 1974".
While the unrest was triggered by the shooting incident, commentators described the reactions as expressing deeper causes as well, especially a widespread feeling of frustration in the younger generation about specific economic problems of the country (partly as a result of the global economic crisis), a rising unemployment rate among the young generation and a perception of general inefficiency and corruption in Greek state institutions.

The youth of today are no different form the youth of yesterday only the date and the landscape have changed and as such we see that there is a broad spectrum of inteligences and motives within the social grouping and the fact that some of the protesters went to peacefully express the fact that they felt opressed showing the world that they are inteligent and should not be persicuted for their age was only sulied by the fact that some just went there under the mask of a protest so they could justify their barbaric desires and as we act when in large groups in what phycologists call gang mentality where in the indavidual looses all sense of self and simly goes with the group decent people with a weak sence of self were also incited into violence creating oppotunties for manipulative people opposing the protest to use todays media coverage of the event to belitle the cause as just youths acting violently to keep their opressive regime intact this is a common tactic used throughout history and is very prevalent if not more so due to the internet bringing coverage to an international audience and as we see from the negative conotations of the photos posted above the damage has already been delt to the cause and needs to be adressed through political streams and protests in an online facility as well as potitions to bring change through the system rather than against it and use the media to show that just like adults not all of todays youth wish to smash society when they see what they belive is unjust

i agree with u dirtysoundboy...as i say history is something recyclable...we have to learn from our mistakes..that's the way to become wiser! but u can't turn ur back to the facts! we always make careless actions..i don't think it's something it ll change but what can we do if we don't have support..if they keeping ignore us...? i don't say,WE,the youth are perfect..there ll always be the ones wanna take advantage of it to bring chaos,others wanna take power,others do it just for fun..but the youths that KNOW what they are doing...it's unfair to ignore them...i m not the kind of person that i ll take a gun and blackmail someone..or i will start up a riot...but if it is necessary i ll do it...when u wanna change the world,the system some actions are necessary...! if u have already took that decision (to change the system,to move on) then u have no other solution but to do things like that..if not shut up and accept the things existing...
