The internet and the street are the two forums in which the informal protest of people who are not organised in unions or NGOs can be articulated on a large scale. This was crucial during the so-called Arab Spring, when a group of young people wrote an online petition against the Muslim Brotherhood. It was signed by millions of people. The town Stratoni on the Chalkidiki Peninsula in northern Greece is resisting the exploitation of its natural environment by a Canadian mining company in a goldmine adjacent to the town. Word of the protest in the little „Gaulish village“ has long since reached the large cities Thessaloniki and Athens, and tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets to support their resistance of the „Romans“.
