Greece -General strike against austerity -November 27, 2014

The major trade unions organised a 24-hour general strike to protest against planned layoffs and pension reforms demanded by the country’s international lenders. As a result nationwide chaos ensued as tens of thousands of workers rallied in major cities across the country. Air, rail and ferry services across the country grounded to a halt and state-run schools closed for the day. The nationwide strikes also forced hospitals and ambulance services to rely on emergency staff.
