Greece paralysed by two-days general strike

A two-day general strike, which will practically paralyze the whole country, will be launched in Greece on Wednesday.

The Civil Servants’ Confederation ADEDY representatives explained that workers in Greece could not live on their monthly wages any more, for which they called on the people to seek justice in the streets.

A new austerity bill that the Greek parliament should pass on Thursday includes collective wage and pension cuts, tax increase and layoffs for thousands of public sector staff.

This would be the biggest strike in the past two years, since the economic crisis began. Strikers call for blocking the entrance to the parliament building at the time when MPs should vote on the new austerity bill.
