  1. I don't know why the title of this documentary is Teenage riots. What does it have to do with teenagers? Apart from this I like its point of view.

  2. This movie has a good reminder to anarchists and libertarians of what backstabbing sellout bastards those commie scum are. Protecting the parliament.Free help for the police.How working-class of them!! Many times i see libertarians+anarchists hangin` out toghether w/these red scum due to an affinity to opposing fascists,but my point is that these people should NOT be trusted.They are against self-management,autonomy and equality. Don`t fall 4 their lies.Leninism is built on lies and theoretical romanticism and we should never forget how different Leninists and authoritarian communists have masacred and oppressed people that opposed their rule. All those icons that so many communists hold dear were assholes and there followers will be assholes as well.If the need is required then it is necessary for comrades in Greece to organize against these red bastards.Run `em over with cabs!

  3. teenage riots does not stand for this documentary, apart from this its very interensting
