Workers in Greek hospitals, tax offices, prisons and archaeological sites started a 24-hour strike on Tuesday in protest against continuing public budget cuts. The parliament votes Wednesday to privatise the national energy producer, PPC, as requested by international lenders. Left-wing opposition party Syriza is demanding a referendum over the plans.
