Please keep this as factual as you can and if possible quote sources.
As long as the thread does not get too unwieldy we'll allow comment and opinion on the data in here but if it starts to get busy then comment and opinion will be deleted in favour of data so that information does not get hidden.

If you don't want your to have your comment possibly be deleted (after 3 or 4 days and purely for space/clarity reasons not because of the comment content) then please start a thread outside of this one.

Refuse collectors on strike in towns across Greece. * Their union have called for the action to continue for a week, with sit ins at municipality offices and protests until Thursday 29th June. The Central Union of Municipalities of Greece (KEDE) said it would give the government until Tuesday to finalise a proposal aimed at ending the dispute.

We thought something was going on as rubbish is piling up everywhere.
