The last time Greeks were shown to be storming their parliament on live TV, we got a 1,000 point drop on the Dow Jones. Today, another 100,000 protesters of austerity are expected to hit the streets as the entire country is essentially shut down. From the BBC : “Much of Greece’s transport network has been immobilised, as trade unions stage another 24-hour general strike against austerity measures. Ferries are tied up in port, railway stations shut, and the Labour Ministry occupied by communist protesters. Organisers are hoping that up to 100,000 people will join protests on the streets later.
There are fears of renewed violence after protests in Athens two weeks ago led to the deaths of three people. The country’s main civil service and public sector unions say they represent some 2.5 million workers. “People are bleeding financially but they will participate in the strike,” Ilias Vrettakos, a senior member of the ADEDY union, was quoted as saying by Reuters.” And for those who wish to follow the strike and potential Storming Of The Parliament Part 2, here is a live feed from the main Parliament square.
