Thousands of pensioners protest cuts

Senior citizens staged an anti-government rally in Athens Thursday to protest a new round of pension cuts – estimated at over 1 billion euros by 2019 – under the country’s bailout program. Thousands of protesters marched to the Labor Ministry and the Parliament, burning copies of a letter sent to them by Labor Minister Giorgos Katrougalos explaining the pension changes.
