The Greek government is pressing ahead with austerity - having approved more public-sector job cuts, struggling to please its international lenders. That's despite a massive general strike - and thousands-strong rallies, bringing public services to a standstill earlier this week. To secure its next bailout tranche, Athens will have to redeploy - or axe - 25 thousand civil servants. RT's Egor Piskunov has been on the streets of Athens, talking to the protesters.
