Καλά Ευτυχισμένο το Νέο Έτος! Socialist austerity means Greek mass transit strikes to continue

From Xinhua News Agency's English service:
The socialist government's top priorities after the holidays include the mass transport restructure plan, a bill to boost development, the opening up of closed professions and markets, as well as the restructure of state-controlled companies...
Meanwhile, Greece's public transport union said it will continue the string of protests against painful austerity measures and reforms into the new year.
"We will continue to the end. It is up to the government to define which will be the end," union chief Nikos Kouloubaritsis told Xinhua.
The subway in Athens and trains across Greece will not be running on New Year's Eve, the union announced on Wednesday.
Ironically, Papandreou may prove to be the best champion of laissez-faire in Greece in decades.
