This research therefore primarily aims at explaining the violent contention which occurred in the Greek urban centres and provinces, and which provoked solidarity protests in the rest of the world, through comparing these different contexts and revealing their structural and cultural differences and commonalities.  The reason why this is significant is firstly because it concerns an unprecedented wave of contention in Greece, which seeks further explanation. Secondly, it reflects a new era for contention, wherein the networked and information character of the post-industrial society is manifested both in the goals of and the means used during collective action, which seeks further elaboration.
