    Greece has ground to a halt as workers staged a one day strike.

    They shut down government offices, trains and the media.

    Unions called for the action in response to next year's budget, which contains further spending cuts in line with Greece’s austerity programme.

    Al Jazeera’s John Psaropoulos reports from Athens.
