Earliest political memory of the day #72

Athens 1980s.

I grew up in the Exarcheia neighbourhood of Athens. There was always something going on. The police. The anarchists, Fires on the road, The Chemistry Faculty building on Solonos St occupied. Tear gas. I found it intriguing and wanted to know more. Its taken over 30 years to discover the meanings and dynamics but the experience has left me with a lifelong fascination with politics and culture.

 

Any thoughts?
