Greek police clashed with protesters on Wednesday as thousands of workers marched to parliament to protest against austerity policies aimed at helping the country cope with a huge debt crisis.

Riot police fired several rounds of teargas and flash bombs at protesters hurling petrol bombs in front of parliament as crowds of striking protesters ran for cover. Public and private sector employees’ 24-hour strike grounded flights, shut down schools and paralysed public transport in this year’s first nationwide walkout against cost cuts.

About 35,000 Greeks marched through the streets of Athens chanting “We are not paying” and “No sacrifice for plutocracy”. In four places across the city, police fired teargas to disperse demonstrators hurling stones and plastic bottles at them.
