Greeks strike amid pain and anger over austerity

“Greek workers staged a 24-hour strike on Thursday forcing the transport system to a standstill in protest against the government’s intensified austerity drive to secure aid to save the debt-laden country from bankruptcy.

About 1,000 members of Communist group MAS marched to parliament chanting “Resist” and “Plutocracy should pay for this crisis” as part of the first big nationwide rallies since June when daily protests ended in bloody clashes with police. “
