Greece: another ‘Z’ ?

Readers may remember what happened to a democratically elected popular government in Chile in 1973 - the Generals coup and the subsequent economic hardship inspired by the Chicago School. Greeks already knew this lesson because a left wing parliamentarian, Grigoris Lambrakis, was assassinated by extremists because he had called for Greece to disarm and withdraw from NATO. What followed is deeply disturbing and a worry to anyone in solidarity with the Greek people in their current struggle. I have included a review of the film written in 1969
The film "Z" is about one of these things: about the assassination, six years ago, of a leader of the political opposition in Greece. It is also about all the rest of them. For Americans, it is about the My Lai massacre, the killing of Fred Hampton, the Bay of Pigs. It is no more about Greece than "The Battle of Algiers" was about Algeria. It is a film of our time. It is about how even moral victories are corrupted. It will make you weep and will make you angry. It will tear your guts out.
