The Greek Saga: Barnard farmers beat police

This, if anything, a rally in the capital of the farmers (in front of the Ministry of Agriculture), enraged after a new round of tax increases.

And this is only a miserable start. The experience of the previous collapse of the financial globalization 1345-year (then, globalization has covered the whole world, but only Europe) hints that the fun is just beginning. I recall how it looked - certificate contemporary events, Giovanni Villani:

... Meanwhile, the fighting near the palace did not cease, day or night, and continued siege searches Duke officials. Was arrested guardian of the notary, guilty of murder and crimes against the family Altoviti, it slashed to pieces. Then he was caught Messer Simone da Norcia, a former commissioner for financial affairs of the commune. He was tortured innocent and the guilty and condemned many citizens. He suffered the same death. At the gates of Santa Maria people of the drain was torn to pieces by one of Naples notary named Filippo Tertsuoli, captain of the ducal guards, vicious and evil people. Sulfur Arrigo Fairies, engaged in tax collection, identified and finished off when he made his way from the church to the gate of the Servite San Gallo, a monk in disguise.The boys dragged his naked body all over the city, then hung by their feet and the belly crosswise as rips pigs.This was the end, prepared him for his hard work in the invention of new taxes, as well as others for their cruelty ...

... On Friday, the first of August, at the dinner hour, the Burgundians seized the Messer Guglielmo d'Assizi, guardian of the tyranny of the Duke of Athens, and his son, M. Gabriella, eighteen years of age, which the Duke recently knighted. The youth who participated in the crimes and the torture of citizens, first pushed out of the front of the palace in the hands of the enraged people and the crowd of friends and relatives of the victims, executed by his father to strengthen the suffering of the latter. Son and rend to pieces in place, the same thing happened with itself the guardian, who was thrown out of it. The remains of their pilfered on the spears and swords throughout the city.Avengers captured a ferocious and wild impulse that devoured some bloody scraps ...

... All the palaces and houses of Bardi from Santa Lucia Square Old Bridge were cleaned looted the common people two days and lost all furnishings and utensils; even neighboring houses it was impossible to defend from popular fury. Ransacked houses set on fire, and the fire burned twenty-two large and rich houses and palaces. Damage by fire and looting damage was estimated at sixty thousand gold florins. So popular anger put an end to the struggle between the people and the Bardi, the cause of which was their great pride and commitment to excellence. Hostility to the Bardi has generated so irrepressible thirst for destruction, which carried away from their homes, even with the roof tiles and useless objects, but not that expensive stuff. Not only men, but also women and children could not stop and stop the robbery ...

...Let the reader only imagine the abyss of money and valuables lost our citizens, of greed have entrusted their kings and rulers.About damn and greedy wolf, full of vicious greed which reigned in our hearts and blinded by insane people, who give their and other people's property in the power of the mighty in the hope of enriching!Because of this, our country has lost all influence, and citizens were left without means of livelihood, except for some of the artisans and usurers, their extortion selects the last crumbs of the residents of the city and its environs. But not without reason secret ways overtakes communes and their citizens God's punishment, and the punishment for sin is Christ himself proclaimed: "Die in your sin, etc." In this pretty, and so, perhaps too extensively written about this subject unworthy.
