George Symeonidis, Artemis Stathakou (Greece) – “Refugee”, 2015, 04:08
In ancient Greece, hospitality was a great virtue and god Zeus was the protector of the foreigners. In this ancient culture, a refugee treated as a holy person. Today, there are more than 60 millions of refugees in every part of the globe and in apathy we see them struggling for their lives in our TV screens. They are trying to save themselves and their families from a capitalist, western-made “crisis”. Power industries are looking for big profit, that means militarization of national economies and war… the exploitation of the workers, to make them slaves and looting the wealth of their countries.
