Changing the world, one Greek community at a time

It’s not all demonstrations, anger and gloom in Greece.  In the trailer for the upcoming documentary Made in Greece, Starvroula Logothettis reports that grassroots groups and community activities are popping up all around Greece.  People are coming together to help each other through difficult times, and in the process, beginning new community relationships.  She introduces the community action group Atenistas (which in one example mobilized to clean Stadiou Street; check out their Facebook page), a community clothing swap, a co-op of independent olive producers, and a street party group organizing lunch and community improvement parties.

If there are more groups out there like this, we could use more reports like this, so look out for the documentary!
