Se­nior cit­i­zens staged an antigov­ern­ment rally in Athens yes­ter­day to protest a new round of pen­sion cuts – es­ti­mated at over 1 bil­lion eu­ros by 2019 – un­der the coun­try’s bailout pro­gram. Thou­sands of pro­test­ers marched to the La­bor Min­istry and the Par­lia­ment, burn­ing copies of a let­ter sent to them by La­bor Min­is­ter Gior­gos Ka­trouga­los ex­plain­ing the pen­sion changes.
