The Civil Servants Supreme Administrative Council (ADEDY) held a rally in Korai Square, central Athens, on Wednesday afternoon on the latest economic developments and a march to Parliament followed.

In a statement to the ANA, ADEDY president Spyros Papaspyros said "today's rally is a preparation for the escalation of mobilisations that will take place in the first fortnight in May. We are potesting and we are reacting to the fiscal-reformist programme that anticipates cuts in labour and social rights of the civil servants, as well as for the new salary scale which as it appears will become a vehicle for new cutbacks."
