On 6 December 2008, the policeman Epaminondas Korkoneas killed Alexandros Grigoropoulos, a 15-year-old student, in Exarcheia district of central Athens. The unjust murder of the young student by police resulted in large protests and demonstrations, which escalated to widespread rioting, with hundreds of rioters damaging property and engaging riot police with Molotov cocktails, stones and other objects. A new wish jumped up from the ashes of those nights, “Merry Crisis and a Happy New Fear”, opening the Pandora’s box of the Greek economy and the unstable political situation of the country.
