|Tonio, dont le nom a été changé pour la rédaction de cet article.|
Tonio is a public servant, and landlord of a decade of flats in Athens. He mainly rents them to students but doesn't hesitate to diversifie his tenants during this crisis time. As I'm staying in one of his places for the next month, he purposed me to give me a ride from the airport when I'm back in the Hellenic capital town. As my plane landed in the middle of the night, I had answered him it wasn't necessary he made such efforts. To make me get rid of my qualms about having him waiting for me at three in the morning, he told me I would have to pay twenty euros. The price was reasonable so I accepted.

Once I'd embarked, we started talking. When I told him I had left Zimbabwe because I couldn't get a visa there, he reacted fast.
— that's crazy. How can they refuse Europeans to go to Zimbabwe while there are so many African people who live in Europe?
I just said I had luck anyway as I could stay in harare for mor than six months as a tourist. Zimbabwean are not many to get this possibility when they want to visit Europe.
After this first contact a little too conflictual, we finally found a matter we could agree about. Tonio confided me than Greeks massively supported François Hollande. They hoped they would see him guiding Europe to a policy who wouldn't be dictated by markets anymore. Then he added a "We don't believe in it too much, but anyway we can't hope for anything better right now" who made me smile.
Then we spoke about Greek policy. About it, it was impossible not to talk about"ΧΡΥΣΗ ΑΥΓΗ" or Golden dawn, the explicitly nazi party who really benefits from the crisis.
First, Tonio swore me Greeks were traditionally and mainly left wing supporters, but as some quarters were so dangerous, without Golden dawn, they would be overtaken by chaos.
I thought aboutExarceia, the anarchist quarter in Athens where police wasn't welcome. They didn't seem they needed strong-arm men from Golden dawn to fight insecurity there.
— For exemple, when Pakistanis tenants stay for months in a flat without paying the rent and police don't do anything, the owners call for Golden dawn and they get everyone out, added Tonio.
At this time, I realised we didn't speak about the same insecurity.
