A tourist takes in an Athens demonstration

A tourist on a sightseeing bus looks on as former employees of the newly privatized Olympic Air demonstrate outside the Finance Ministry in central Athens yesterday. Protests against the government’s austerity measures are due to intensify over the next week. Customs officers, who concluded a 48-hour strike yesterday, have announced rolling strikes through next Wednesday when they are to join the main labor union GSEE in a 24-hour walkout.
