Teachers were joined…

Teachers were joined by students in Athens yesterday as they dressed up to act out satirical roles while demonstrating over demands for a pay rise. Some 3,000 demonstrators walked through the city center as traffic in the area was cut off for several hours. Primary and preschool teachers were also on a 24-hour strike yesterday after having already spent six weeks off the job over the pay dispute. Teachers are demanding a rise in the minimum salary to 1,400 euros from the current 950 euros.
