Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

that "cracking down" on protests that you predicted once the police were fired on by the protesters?  Did a crack down ever occur?  Do the protesters have a real upper hand?  Should I be stocking up on cheese to throw at the police here in the US?  Instead of wasting good cheese like they do in Iceland, I'm thinking of packaging my own feces in cheesecloth and selling the little gems at US riots.  Could be a real $maker!

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

No crackdown yet ? however everything went quiet in the new year, so I guess the pressure was vented. however, there were a couple of events last week that didn't look good, but I was completely unaware about this protest.

things are going to be interesting in greece very soon.

keep to the Fen Causeway

some months ago I stated that I was waiting to see your take on Obama in terms of any real change, any real improvement.

What's your current view?
