Jeff Ackerman December 12, 2007 Greece’s Human Rights Issues Greece is a free country that grants its 11 million citizens the right to live under a constitutional republic with a multiparty parliamentary democracy. The country’s prime minister is elected with no discrimination by the people’s vote. Even though Greece is a free country, the government doesn’t always respect the rights of the people. In fact there have been reports of ethnic discrimination, religious persecution, unlawful searching and seizing of private property, and police brutality. Police brutality is usually geared towards illegal immigrants. After these immigrants are beaten, they are usually thrown in one of the many harsh prisons that are so overpopulated and poorly maintained that the jail cells themselves infringe on human rights. “As of September the Ministry of Justice reported that the total prison population was 10,114, while the official capacity of the prison system was 6,019 (historycentral).”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
