Greece: general strike disrupts entire country | Europe | Deutsche Welle | 02.04.2009
Greeks took to the streets to demonstrate against the dismal economy, high unemployment and low wages. 

 A nationwide 24-hour strike brought most of Greece to a halt on Thursday as tens of thousands of demonstrators marched peacefully through major cities to protest against Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis' conservative government.

The strike was called by the country's private sector federation GSEE and its public sector union ADEDY. Together, they represent about half of the country's workforce. Union banners read : "We did not cause the crisis; we're not going to pay for it".
