Greece: teenager uprising, big general strike, but the left parties refuse to give a political solution

After four days of struggle we can now start to draw some first clear conclusions. Without any doubt this movement deserves the title of "teenager uprising". We have here a new generation of tens of thousands of school students erupting in a huge explosion, the biggest for 20 years, if not even more, in Greece. We have clear symptoms of an instinctive revolutionary spirit, and a clear tendency to target not only the present bourgeois government but also the bourgeois state and the capitalist system as a whole.

I also posted an article from the Marxistiki Foni.

It means alot that you print their analysis, being so close to the situation.

I know after the Republican Party Convention was near where I live, how frustrating it's, that militant action occurs without direction.
