Greek general strike

As we have seen at previous union protests, Greek trade unionists seem to have written the book on dishing it back to aggressive cops. They’re among the originators of the infamous red paint bomb. Now it looks like they’re advisedly showing up to protests in gas masks & riot gear. Here a protestor at yesterday’s general strike bolts from riot cops who arrested dozens protesting spending cuts of $15 billion (11.5bn euros or £9bn). You read that right; the staggering figure is not a misprint. Our fullest solidarity with our Greek brothers & sisters against this ruthless attack on their rights & living standards.
