Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Hospi­tal doc­tors and nurses scuf­fle with riot po­lice dur­ing an an­ti­aus­ter­ity rally in front of the Fi­nance Min­istry in Athens yes­ter­day. The na­tional fed­er­a­tion of Greek hospi­tal work­ers (POEDIN) had called a four-hour work stop­page in Athens and a 24-hour strike for other parts of the coun­try, de­mand­ing free health­care for all, the re­cruit­ment of more staff and the re­im­burse­ment of wages that were cut as part of the gov­ern­ment’s belt­tight­en­ing pledges to Greece’s cred­i­tors. Pro­test­ers also car­ried black bal­loons which de­scribed gov­ern­ment min­is­ters as ‘sell­outs.’
