Greeks protest 'last' austerity cuts

Thousands of Greeks have joined protests against cuts the government say are necessary to keep it in eurozone.

    People in Greece who earn more than $1200 a month will have 10 per cent of their pensions axed in addition to a 25 per cent cut over the last two years.

    While the prime minister says the most recent cuts will be the last of their kind, many people are not convinced.
