Greece - Second general strike takes place - December 31, 2015

The second general strike in a month mobilised some 15,000 protestors. The general strikes are organised to protest the austerity measures imposed in the crisis. In order to secure a bailout package, the government coalition has passed legislation that will increase the pension age, raise health care contributions and cut levels of pension payments.
