ens of thousands of Greek workers began a 48-hour strike on Tuesday to protest a new round of austerity cuts that unions say will devastate the poor and drive a failing economy to collapse.
The strike was called by Greece's two biggest labour organisations and is the third in two months against spending cuts and reforms that Prime Minister Antonis Samaras wants parliament to approve on Wednesday to unlock international aid.
Transport was severely disrupted across the country and schools, banks and local government offices were shut. Hospitals were working on emergency staffing.
It just a matter of time. These demonstrations will be coming to a city you live in or near you. With the $16+ trillion dollar national debt and rising every day, Run-A-Way Inflation is just around the corner. This debt can't and never will be repaid. As soon as China stops buying our debt and the American Dollar is no longer the world's reserve money supply, look out for all hell to brake lose here. What's happening in Europe is just childs play to what's going to happen here. Now is the time to prepare!
Athens police plan city-wide crackdown on protests ahead of Merkel visit
Greek police are preparing to close down large sections of the Athens to contain protests against German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is visiting the city on Tuesday for talks with the country's Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras.
Authorities issued permits for only two of the planned protests. At least 7,000 police from across the country were deployed in Athens, including rooftop snipers, water cannons and hundreds of undercover agents. Security forces erected steel fences around the capital’s parliament building.
Thousands of protesters filled the streets, and police began to take position ahead of Merkel's visit.
Eyewitnesses reported that police preemptively arrested demonstrators before Merkel's arrival in Athens. At least 26 people were detained near Syntagma Square, including 12 students and every member of a ‘Solidarity Network’ protest bloc, seen with banners and megaphones.
