Athens Mutt Riots

The Arab Spring has arrived in Greece with a vengeance. They're not protesting against military dictatorship, but against the financial dictatorship of the International Monetary Fund. Same difference, you might think. Fat cats grab the dosh and workers lose their jobs. One prominent protester is a stray dog called Loukanikos or Sausage. In mid June, BBC's Newsnight posted a compilation video of her adventures in the front line of Athens protests. I've spotted her since, although not in today's footage. Maybe the stun grenades frightened her off. Click the title link for a doggy protest.
