  • Description

    THE GREEK GOVERNMENT - ALREADY FACING A TROUBLED SITUATION IN CYPRUS - HAS RECENTLY HAD A WAVE OF INTERNAL TROUBLES ON ITS HANDS: STRIKES, LOCK-OUTS, PROTEST MARCHES AND OTHER DEMONSTRATIONS.

    YESTERDAY (MONDAY) IT WAS A HUNGER STRIKE AT THE ATHENS SCHOOL OF MECHANICS. STUDENTS SAID THEY WOULD REMAIN LOCKED INSIDE THE SCHOOL UNTIL THE GOVERNMENT SATISFIED THEIR DEMAND FOR DIPLOMAS TO BE BROUGHT TO THE SAME LEVEL AS THOSE OF SIMILAR SCHOOLS.

    AND THE SAME DAY BANNER-CARRYING WAR INVALIDS MARCH THROUGH THE GREEK CAPITAL DEMANDING TO SEE PRIME MINISTER PAPANDREOU ABOUT HIS PROMISES OF A HIGHER PENSION.

    DURING RECENT WEEKS GREEK TAXI DRIVERS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATING AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S DECISION TO GRANT 500 NEW TAXI LICENSES. THEY CLAIMED THAT ANY INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF LEGAL CABS WOULD REDUCE THEIR INDIVIDUAL INCOMES...OLD AGE PENSIONERS TOO HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATING. THEY'RE PROTESTING AGAINST THE HIGH COST OF LIVING AND THE LOW PENSIONS THEY GET. SOME RECEIVE AS LITTLE AS GBP7 A MONTH.
