Greece had calmed down but now Spain is firing up.
Police in Athens have clashed with protesters during a nationwide strike in protest at a new round of austerity cuts introduced in return for vital EU-IMF loans. The protesters threw firebombs, smashed windows and set fire to garbage on the sidelines of the demonstration on Wednesday near luxury hotels on the capital's central Syntagma square. The police fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse a group of around 200 protesters. Dozens of people were detained, according to a police source, as crowds moved towards the capital's other central square, Omonia, booing and throwing plastic bottles at the special forces that were present. The protests rallied striking civil servants and private sector workers as well as students and pensioners, who have all been hit by previous rounds of cutbacks in the debt-laden eurozone country........
