Greek strikers demonstrating today

From daily News Line in Britain:

Tuesday, 6 November 2012

LAST week the two main Greek trade union organisations representing workers in the public and private sector called a two-day general strike starting today against the new austerity measures being voted on by the Greek parliament tomorrow.

Even before the official strike began, workers in public transport and the media kicked off the strike by walking out yesterday in advance of the official action.

The driving force for this massive mobilisation of workers, small shopkeepers and the poor, is the debate being held this week in the Greek parliament on whether to accept the new round of ‘austerity’ measures being demanded by the Troika – the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the IMF – who are determined to screw every penny of the Greek debt out of the very blood of the Greek people.
