Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Mem­bers of the union of Pub­lic Power Co­op­er­a­tion’s plant in Ptole­maida, north­ern Greece, clashed with riot po­lice of­fi­cers yes­ter­day out­side the of­fices of the La­bor Min­istry in Athens, com­plain­ing that their so­cial se­cu­rity fund has stopped sub­si­diz­ing their medicines. The pro­test­ers were fi­nally re­ceived by Al­ter­nate La­bor Min­is­ter Gior­gos Koutrouma­nis. There was also ten­sion out­side the Health Min­istry when riot po­lice used pep­per spray to dis­perse doc­tors and nurses protest­ing health cuts. There were no re­ports of in­juries.
