General strike

Greece is experiencing one of the worst cases of social unrest in a long time. Various pensions schemes are going to be unified under a single national security system, and this has upset many people (but not me in particular). The sight of uncollected rubbish is becoming more and more common these days, as are the locked banks, empty ATMs and a go-slow policy in government offices. A trip into town these days is a smelly experience. And did you know that it's illegal to strike on Mondays and Fridays in Greece? That would be like a three-day weekend, wouldn't it?
