Greek Police Launch Street Protests Against 25% Salary Cuts: Who WIll Control the Protesters?

Absolutely bizarre. One wonders who will control the thousands of other protesters in Greece? Thousands of Greek police and firefighters protested in central Athens against the government's austerity plan, the latest in a series of demonstrations in the Greek capital.

Whistles and carrying banners that condemned the recent spending cuts, the protesters marched on Parliament chanting: "Stop the cuts! Change policies."

Police and firefighters were among those affected by the cuts the government and saw their salaries reduced by 25%.

The protest is just a few days before the Greek parliament to vote on the austerity plan of five years of 28 billion euros that the government promised to its creditors in exchange for new international financial aid.
