An accurate take on the current situation in Athens

20/06/2011

A few word to address the current situation in Athens:

 

SAFETY

In recent months there have been numerous reports regarding the rise in crime in Athens and safety concerns.

As per usual these are blown a little, out of proportion by the media. Athens is no more dangerous, in fact is less dangerous than cities like London or New York. As with these cities, if you avoid the shadier areas especially at night that are far from the tourist sites and the main part of Athens, then there is nothing to worry about. Of course one should always look out for pick pockets and scams just as every other city in the World, Unfortuantely there is a lot of negative hype surrounding Athens at the moment which tends to paint a less accurate picture of what is actually going on here.

 

CIVIL UNREST:

The civil unrest that occurs in Athens is in the form of protesters rioting again Police and state property. It is not the type of riot where random attacks and muggins happen on by standers and 3rd parties as one would expect in cpountries like Nigeria or Venezuela. The only risks posed are being hit by a rock or being tear gased which would only be the case if someone purposfully stood on the front lines where all the action is going on. Whenever unrest takes palce it is limited to a very small section of Athens and is neutralised within the space of 3 hours each time. It is easy to avoid danger in this case. DONT GO TO THE FRONT LINE OF THE RIOTS AND THROW ROCKS AT THE POLICE.

 

Hope that helps
