Greece strike
December 15th, 2010 by elisa

The UK might be having trouble with its deficit and strikes but Greece is really suffering with a 24 hour general strike  today. Flights to and from the country have been cancelled as air traffic controllers said no planes would be allowed to take off or land for the duration of the strike. Ferries operating into Piraeus have also stopped running.

Unions from the public and private sector across Greece are staging the strike in response to government austerity measures. It also coincides with the Greek government’s discussions this week on how to get the country out of its huge debt. It has already received a €110 billion bailout from the EU and the IMF.
