Greek pensioners protest over cuts, healthcare

Greek pensioners took to the streets of Athens Wednesday to protest cuts to their pensions and healthcare reforms that are limiting their access to free healthcare.

The elderly, who have faced several pension reductions since 2010, also demanded immediate subsidy of their pension funds and measures to restore damage caused by the 2012 haircut (PSI).

Protesters who gathered at Kotzia Square were expected to march to the Ministry of Health later in the day.
