This "Athens Violent Riots Trailer" highlights the fantastic shots Paul Hodge took of the violent Athens Greece riots/protests.
To get this amazing footage, Paul exposed himself to great risk of harm, was tear gassed, hit with stones and escaped from his hotel which was set on fire.
The Trailer summarizes Chapters 30-42 of Paul Hodge's video book "How to Go Solo Around the World in 24 Days". These Chapters chronicle Paul's coverage of the October 19 & 20, 2011 Greek National Strike and the protests/riots which took place in the Sindagma Square/Parliament Building areas of Athens. The strike/protests were intended to make the Greek Parliament not approve legislation which would reduce the size of Greece's bureaucracy and cut retirement, health care and other social service benefits. The Parliament's vote was on October 19 & 20th and the legislation was passed.
For more fantastic detailed video coverage of the Athens riots, see Paul's video book's Chapters 30-42 which accompany this trailer.
"How to Go Solo Around the World in 24 Days" is the "first ever" video book to instruct viewers as to how to go around the world solo. By providing the viewer with detailed videos and commentary of his recent 24 day World adventure, author Paul Hodge, who has twice adventured around our planet, shows what it realistically takes to plan and successfully execute this life changing "bucket list" achievement.
