The unions in Greece really don't get it. They expect the people of the EU to pay for their years of profligacy. So what do we have, May day riots. That should help the Greek economy.
Greek riot police have used tear gas to disperse angry protesters in Athens, during a march against government plans to tackle the country's crippling debt.
Clashes erupted at the finance ministry and a state TV truck was petrol bombed. A tense stand-off continues, with protesters hurling bottles and rocks.
Thousands of Greeks are taking part in May Day rallies called by trade unions and left-wing parties.
The EU is demanding the austerity cuts in exchange for a huge bail-out deal.
The rescue package is expected to amount to as much as 120bn euros (£100bn; $160bn) over three years.
The full details of the bail-out are expected to be revealed on Sunday if the Eurozone leaders finally sign off the deal, which is designed to prevent Greece from defaulting on its enormous debt obligations.
