Greek workers against cutbacks

Industrial action continues in Greece amid worsening economic situation.

    Greece's economy continues to reel from its billions of debt, leading to international credit rating agency Standard and Poor's to downgrade its government bonds to junk status.

    On the social front, transport workers are the latest to go on strike, protesting against the government's austerity measures.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports on the latest round of industrial action in the capital Athens.
