Greece: Attack on Athens Microsoft Headquarters

On June 27, 2012, arsonists attacked Microsoft's headquarters in Athens, Greece. On Athens Indymedia, a group took responsibility [el] for the attack as an “act of war against suspicious silence and general captivity”. Greek-American startup entrepreneur Eric Thanopoulos-Parks reacted [el] on Facebook: “In its offices, Microsoft incubates Greek startup companies, unsupported at this moment. [...] We were holding our meetings there, sharing experiences, trying to have a progress and make things better. For the stupid ones: Congratulations, probably you made Greece poorer”.
