Greece -National strike one of the biggest protests -August 02, 2013

A national strike to try to head off thousands more public sector lay-offs, new taxes on workers, wage cuts and removal of employment protections was called for 16 July. The strike was called by the confederation GSEE and civil service union grouping ADEDY. Over 30,000 demonstrators - including police and teachers targeted in the layoff scheme - gathered in the central square before parliament beating drums and blowing whistles in one of the biggest anti-austerity protests in 2013. The strike actions continued during the following weeks with marches and protests in the streets of Athens.
