Even the shops will be closed 12.00-3.00 p.m. in a protests against the strict austerity measures that force on their knees millions of Greeks without a prospect of recovery. Public administration services, banks, state-run enterprises (DEKO) and municipalities will be closed for 24 hours. Public hospitals will operate with emergency staff only. No planes will land or take off, no ferries and boats will leave the ports. No news and live broadcasts. No trains of OSE and no Proastiakos.

Public Transport workers will launch only work stoppages to facilitate strikers to join the big protest in downtown Athens. The demonstration will start at 11 a.m.

Buses will operate 9 am 9 pm, Trolley buses 8 am – 10 pm, Tram 7 am – 11 pm, Urban Train (HSAP) 8 am – 9 pm.

Protests will start already at 7 in the morning as the “Indignant” Greeks plan to “block” the Parliament. On Wednesday, the Mid-Term Austerity Package will be discussed at the Economics Committee.
