Greece is once again being engulfed in working-class militancy as thousands walked off their jobs Wednesday and marched through central Athens in an angry protest against continued austerity measures being demanded by international lenders in exchange for disbursing bailout funds.
The strike was called by the country's main public and private sector unions a day before Greece's parliament is due to vote on austerity reforms that would open up access to funds from the 86-billion-euro bailout, the country's third in seven years.
New austerity attached to the funds released include the 13th cut in pensions since 2010 and a reduction in tax-free allowances on income. They come after years of cuts that for a time threw the country into deep recession.
