Ex Patriot in Greece

A northwest Missouri resident is in Greece right now, experiencing the violent protests as economic unrest there continues.

Northwest Missouri State student Kendra Grupe is doing her student teaching in Athens this Fall trimester. She was nearby as the protests broke out on Thursday in Athens over a plan to increase taxes there and lower wages. Grupe says what started out as a peaceful protest soon became much more.

Grupe says the thinking in Greece is protesters could keep fighting the economic changes being proposed there.
