Greece -Police, military, tax collectors, teachers and judges join protest -September 22, 2012

Military personnel and police officers have joined the protest against the new round of austerity measures that will further cut down wages and benefits whilst increasing the costs of public services. Teachers and judges too, have announced they will be joining the general strike that has been announced for 26 September. The European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE) expressed its solidarity with the Greek teachers and stated that Greece in many ways has been turned into an austerity laboratory under control of purely economic interests.
