In Greece, pensioners and workers blockaded the entrance of the Finance Ministry Thursday to call for a general strike on May 17 to protest a new round of austerity measures imposed by international creditors and accepted by the Greek government. This is one of the protesters, a 65-year-old pensioner.
Ioakim Yatzisis: “The amount of harm that has been done to the Greek people by all these policies is unbelievable. A battle must be waged. What else can we do? We cannot do anything else.”
