Disabled citizens protest against cuts outside PM’s office


Demonstrators with physical disabilities staged a protest outside the Maximos Mansion Thursday, calling on the government not to reduce their monthly disability subsidies and pensions any further. The protesters waited outside the Maximos Mansion for two hours, saying that government spokesperson Olga Gerovasili has promised them a meeting with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. When they were told the meeting would be held on October 24, protesters accused the authorities of "messing us around." [Reuters]
