If you think the Troika representatives can bypass 50 disable protesters and enter unharmed the Labour Ministry in Athens , you’re wrong. The panic and confusion is so big that the Troikans can land into some private gym instead…

 Sorry, that was the gym. Labour ministry is there!

Some 50 representatives of disable organisations had gathered outside the Labour and Social Care Ministry to protest cuts in health care and benefits. And thus before the Troika arrived for a meeting with minister Yiannis Vroutsis.

It was first, Matthias Morse (EU) who approached the Ministry. The angry crowd started to boo and chant slogans.

Of course, despite the mistake, Poul Thomsen managed to meet the Labour Minister and to hand him out a long list with many-many cuts in labour rights, wages, allowances and benefits for disabled or not.
