#occupywallstreet
Today, more than two million public sector workers across the United Kingdom are on the picket lines, protesting planned cuts to their pensions and austerity measures. The strike includes transport workers, teachers, health workers and other government employees. Protests and occupations are taking place in cities across the country, which have closed the majority of schools and impacted health and transport services. This is being hailed as the largest strike for many sectors in more than thirty years.
We express solidarity with the workers of the United Kingdom. Anywhere the interests of the few are crushing the hard-work of the many, our struggle is the same, and we stand united calling for justice.

Anger over proposed new austerity measures boiled over in Greece on Wednesday as unions shut down the country with what one newspaper called “the mother of all strikes.”
 
Flights were grounded, and state offices and shops were shuttered on the first day of a 48-hour general strike, the biggest organized protest against austerity since the debt crisis began almost two years ago.
In a remarkable display of political expression, tens of thousands of striking workers marched through the avenues of central Athens, chanting anti-capitalist and anti-government slogans. They gathered before Parliament, where lawmakers were debating a controversial austerity bill that would raise taxes and cut public sector pay and pensions, among other things, ahead of a vote Thursday.

Solidarity!
