Massive General Strike Shakes Greek Government...
While Spain prepares to follow

On Wednesday 26th April 2001, the biggest general strike for fifteen
years took place in Greece. Both public and private sectors came out on
strike with very big percentages of success, with many factories striking
100%. The demonstration in Athens was huge: 150,000-200,000 workers
participated in the rally and then marched through the centre of Athens
to the Parliament. It was really an impressive demonstration - almost two
miles long.
