Unrest in Eastern Europe

The protests continue in Greece--as have other incidents, including domestic terror attacks staged against the police. (Those only newly following the issue can check out my earlier coverage of the matter, in this blog post, and my subsequent follow-up to it.)

Readers should note that Greece is far from being alone in facing such discontent, Bulgaria and the three post-Soviet Baltic republics (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) all having unrest of their own related to government corruption, economic contraction and yet another round of painful reforms imposed on them by international financial institutions, which you can read about in this Guardian article here.
