Abstract

Social discord in Greece presented three characteristics that distinguished it from similar phenomena that occurred in other crisis-ridden countries in Europe. Those were: the massive participation of society in protest activity; the specific targeting of the state, its top political personnel, and its material infrastructure; and, above all, the exceptional violence it displayed.
