The Greeks Fight Back - "I am Hellene" by Katerina Moutsatsou

The Irish Independent reports today about a Greek actress (Katerina Moutsatsou) who "has produced a video hitting back at the blame and recriminations her country has suffered in the debt crisis". It's very patriotic stuff, and the Independent reports that this video has "gone viral" (it has over 1,000,000 views as I write) and that Moutsatsou has "set social networks on fire". Watch and see for yourself - brilliant stuff!

I wonder if an Irish actress could do the same for us? Can you imagine Saoirse Ronan doing the same? Ireland of the Saints and Scholars, poets, writers, theatre, we built America (along with a lot of others) - and all that stuff.

It's time we Irish took a lead from ballsy Greeks like Moutsatsou and show the world what we can do.
