ATHENS, Greece – Most public services in Greece ground to a halt Wednesday and transport was disrupted as labor unions held a new general strike to protest the government's introduction of harsh austerity measures intended to keep the debt-ridden country solvent.
All train and ferry services were suspended, while an air traffic controllers strike was due to ground flights between noon and 4 p.m. In Athens, public transport workers started a series of walkouts that were due to last several hours.
An opinion poll commissioned by the private Mega TV station and published Tuesday said 71 percent of the public oppose the government's handling of the economic crisis, compared with 66 percent in February.
