are seen be­hind a banner read­ing ‘NO’ dur­ing a demon­stra­tion out­side Par­lia­ment yes­ter­day. The teach­ers, who are protest­ing the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to in­crease civil ser­vants’ work­ing hours from 37.5 to 40 per week, are to con­tinue their ac­tion to­day when thou­sands of work­ers are ex­pected to join a 24hour gen­eral strike. The strike, called by unions to protest the gov­ern­ment’s on­go­ing aus­ter­ity drive, will dis­rupt flights and pub­lic trans­port, close down schools and pub­lic ser­vices and leave hos­pi­tals op­er­at­ing on emer­gency staff.
