Strike Tomorrow


Just in case you are living synchronously in Athens and under a rock: Tomorrow Wednesday 2007-12-12 will be a big strike here. Public transport will be mostly out for 24 hours, other public services will be totally out for 24 hours. I will work from home, I don't think it's worth it to try to get on the street and compete for one of the taxis - which will be overcrowded, overcharging and driven by bad tempered (even more than usual) drivers.

Before any foreigners unused to strikes complain: The reason for this strike is the situation with the various pension funds. As far as I get the situation, various governments have helped themselves to the money of those pension funds to plug holes in their budgets. There has to be a way to make a point, even if it inconveniences some people who are not responsible for the situation.
