Strike first, question later?

Earlier this week I heard a report on NPR about a new round of general strikes and protests planned in Greece. Two groups that had participated in previous strikes had decided not to participate this time, said the reporter. One of those groups: Journalists. According to the report, the Greek journalists decided that even though striking "showed brotherly solidarity", it might be counterproductive because they recognized that one of the most important things about a protest is publicity.

Ummm... I'm glad they figured that out.
