1 February 2022 by Joseph Tomaras in Politics
Alexis Tsipras, ready to return to the Prime Minister’s office this time with an absolute majority, was assassinated in the early morning local time Monday 31/01/2022. Our correspondent offers a prismatic timeline of the aftermath in the eyes of the Greeks.
@SirensBureau: With new snap elections in Greece, will SYRIZA finally win a majority government?
TR @ekloges24 Official estimate:
SYRIZA 160 seats out of 300
Other parties 20
TR from German: “@faznet Can a SYRIZA majority government survive? Can Europe survive Greek left-radicalism?”
TR @ergatikidrasi Going to SYRIZA victory rally tonight at Syntagma. Viva Alexis!
TR @ergatikidrasi I can’t believe it. They shot him!
TR @o_anarxos @ergatikidrasi: Who?
TR @ergatikidrasi @o_anarxos: Tsipras, of course!
TR @o_anarxos @ergatikidrasi: I mean who shot him?
TR @ergatikidrasi .@o_anarxos: Cops or Golden Dawners. No one knows. Very confused here. Running…
TR @o_anarxos Cops, Golden Dawners, what’s the difference? @ergatikidrasi
TR @riotgrrl_gr There is no difference. @o_anarxos @ergatikidrasi
TR @riotgrrl_gr @ergatikidrasi: What’s happening there? Is Alexis still alive? Are you OK?
TR @o_anarxos Some fucking general is on NERIT [Greek state TV] with two priests, saying he’s dead. @riotgrrl_gr @ergatikidrasi
TR @ergatikidrasi @riotgrrl_gr: Cops are rounding people up on the square. I got out of there. DM for more.
TR @riotgrrl_gr @ergatikidrasi: What the fuck? No one else would have been there with weapons.
TR @ergatikidrasi @riotgrrl_gr: Of course. Provocations.
TR @riotgrrl_gr I heard Rena Dourou calling for general strike. Can’t get on NERIT of course.
TR @o_anarxos @riotgrrl_gr: Fuck NERIT up the ass.
TR @o_anarxos Greeks, get off your asses and turn off your televisions. This is real struggle.
TR @rizospastiko Another coup. So much for being part of Europe.
TR @o_anarxos @rizospastiko: This is Europe’s fault. The orders written in Frankfurt.
TR @rizospastiko @o_anarxos: Of course. We need the Europe of the peoples to come to our aid.
TR @o_anarxos @rizospastiko: KKE jackoff. Where were you when the last 4 left governments fell? Get on the streets tomorrow or be quiet.
TR @rizospastiko @o_anarxos: Provocateurs like you are objective fascists.
TR @o_anarxos @rizospastiko: You objectively have your head up your ass.
TR @ekologistiki We finally had a chance to make real change in this country. I cry for Greece.
TR @ergatikidrasi They will not pass!
TR @riotgrrl_gr In the morning, no work, no school, nothing. This is the Troika’s last gasp.
TR @ergatikidrasi Golden Dawners on motorcycles trying to enter Exarheia. All out to protect the squats!
TR @XrysiAvgi88 All you leftist scum are done. We have a list. @riotgrrl_gr @ergatikidrasi @ekologistiki @o_anarxos @rizospastiko
TR @o_anarxos @XrysiAvgi88: So do we. You first, Nazi scum.
