And the story goes like this..

"We are Dying", in front of the parliament.

Wednesday, 23th February, 2011. General Strike with demonstrations all over the Greece, because of the new measures that the goverment announced. Reduction in salaries and pensions, increases in tickets for the public transportation, unemployment, privitizations and clearance sale of the public property - among other reasons - led people to resist, because the future is inauspicious.
Around 100.000 workers, pensioners and students marched to protest austerity policies and they clashed with the cops, when they tried to disperse them.
