Sometimes words fail to describe the sense of disgust that arises when we are confronted with our political reality today. This photo says it all.
This is where we stand today: Greek photojournalist Tatiana Bolari is punched in the face by a riot policeman while covering a protest in Athens. Several members of the media were harassed and a few beaten by the police. I would like to refrain from any further comment about freedom of the press, respect for human rights, and basic relations between citizens and the state in an advanced capitalist democracy. The image speaks for itself.
