Disabled hold protest outside Finance Ministry

Dozens of disabled citizens gathered outside the main offices of the Finance Ministry in central Athens on Friday to protest reductions to their salaries and pensions imposed as part of a broader government austerity program.

The union representing the country's disabled is lobbying the government to provide relief to the retired and working disabled and for guardians of those with heavy disabilities.

Unionists have demanded a meeting with Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras, Labor and Social Insurance Minister Yiannis Vroutsis and others to discuss their grievances.
