Greece 26S – media creating visual apocalypse

Article and video published on Huffington Post, UK. WATCH: Greek protests 26S
Article on NY Daily News: Greek protest turns violent during general strike
There are many more examples of this kind of news and photos on the web.

The news reports illustrate violence against police, photos seem apocalyptic. Media have the power to create an imagery of violence or report what is going on and show faces, interview people and why there is anger. A change in news reporting is urgently needed, we need a change to a better world not a visual creation of apocalypse like these photos with policemen on fire!
