This is what happened in Greece on Thursday when 15.000 - 20.000 university students,employees and high school students gathered in the centre of Athens in order to have march and complain about the new draft of proposed law that concerns the creation of State Private Universities!!!The march was to end at the Ministry of Education!!!The march was turning out well and had almost reached the Ministry where cops were waiting with the roads blocked in order to stop the march reaching the Ministry.The students where not willing to leave without ending the march.Suddenly a group of anarchists (which was irrelevant with the march) intervened and started fighting with cops and throwing them things...Well the cops all they needed was a motive to break the march and they got really mad(it's like they have been told to from before...)The cops payed back with chemicals and sound grenades and made the atmosphere suffocating and the students couldn't keep up with the march and retreated.As the students retreated cops kept hitting them in every way even if they were simple innocent students and even they retreated...!!!!!!They even hit reporters and simple citizens. The march broke into groups with students running around the streets panipanicstriken just trying to save themselves from chemicals and beatting.They all headed towards Metsobeio University where students shelter exists and excludes cops from getting inside.All the roads around the march were closed and blocked by cops waiting to repress the march and catch as many students they could!!!Everyone tried to save himself in every way (even hiding in cafeterias and nearby lobby houses)just because they wanted to express their rights through a march!!!It all seems like this cop reaction was planned from before from the government...
The result was that the march was destroyed by a group of people that isn't even students and all they wanted is trouble...And by thousands of cops trying to show out their authority and strength to simple students.It is sad the voice of 15.000 students to be covered by these sad incidents.We have the rights for free education and the rights to express it!!!
At this moment more than 300 sections of 10+ universities are closed with students trying to be opposed to this law...
We'll keep on fighting to end...

THE END OF THE INTERNET AS YOU KNOW IT


Once again, I've gone way too long without updating this blog. I've been busy with new work projects, and also decompressing after a long time away from home.

Anyway, I'm updating today to help spread the word about something that is going to affect all of us very soon. I really hate to get preachy, but this is important. I've been reading about it in various places around the internet for a while now, but it's really starting to show up a lot, and people need to be informed about it.

Basically, the internet as we know it is in jeopardy. What makes the internet so revolutionary is that it levels the playing field - everyone has an equal chance to create something important, or to make money, or to have their views heard. This is the only form of media with such freedom and possibility, but it may be coming to an end.

To explain it briefly: In a country controlled by corporate empires, nothing happens by chance. When you turn on MTV and see the same three ###### hip-hop videos played over and over again, it isn't because MTV thought the music was good. It's because the big record labels have paid MTV to feature their artists. When you go to the book store, the books featured in the window aren't there because they're good books - they're there because a publishing company paid for preferred shelf space. It's not about a quality product, it's about the biggest marketing budget. This system occurs almost everywhere, from movie theatres to grocery stores, and it keeps big companies in control of distribution, and makes it hard for the average person to accomplish anything unless they go through the corporate middleman. The internet effectively removes that middle man, and evens the odds for everyone. It has a lot of companies - record labels, for example - terrified because their traditional means of controlling the marketplace are no longer applicable.

So now, the big telecommunications companies - the ones who provide you with high-speed internet access - are lobbying for the removal of a rule known as Network Neutrality, which ensures that communications providers give the same quality of service to all of their customers - it's the reason you can't pay more for better phone service. With Network Neutrality gone, companies like AT&T would be free to choose which websites run better than others on your internet connection, based - of course - on which companies pay them more. It would set up a tiered internet where bandwidth is allocated based on who can afford it. Big company websites would run fast and smooth, because they paid for it. Meanwhile, the rest of the internet is left with the junk bandwidth, causing small, non-profit sites like blogs or Wikipedia or yes - GASP! - even Population Paste, to slow to a crawl.

There are a lot of theories about where this is ultimately going - including an interesting idea that what it's really about is censorship and government control, and even that Rupert Murdoch's ever-growing MySpace empire is a trojan horse for the new controlled-access internet. Some of this might be a little far-fetched (or maybe not), but the guaranteed end result of Network Neutrality's removal is that all of us will be paying a lot more for all of the online services we currently enjoy for free.

For a more detailed article about the situation, go here. If you'd like to help do something about it, the best thing is to spread the word. This whole movement is happening largely under the nose of the general public because no one would ever support it. The only people who want this to happen are the telecommunications companies and the politicians they pay to ensure the laws fall on their side. So post about this on your blogs, or your LiveJournals, or your MySpace or whatever. Learn more about it, tell everyone you know. If this issue gets into the spotlight a bit more, it will put pressure on lawmakers to stop it from happening.

At the end of the day I'm not much of an activist, but the internet is a huge part of my life and I'd like to know I did some small part to help prevent it from being destroyed by greed. You can sign a petition that will go to congress - I know petitions usually don't mean much, but it certainly can't hurt.

And really, I promise I'll write a non-preachy update in the next few days. I genuinely apologize for making you think for a few minutes - please get back to watching mindless videos on YouTube and refreshing your MySpace to see if anyone left you a comment."
