Greek Anti-Austerity Protest
Athens, Greece

13 Jul 2015

Anti-austerity protests swept through Athens the day after Greek Prime Minister Tsipras signed a framework deal set out by Eurozone leaders - a deal he said he "didn't believe in, but that was necessary for the future of the country." Experts, including representatives of the IMF, acknowledged that the deal was in many ways worse than the deal Mr. Tsipras set before the Greek people in a referendum.

Two days after the protests, the Greek parlaiment approved the deal, keeping Greece in the Eurozone, but passing reforms many consider draconian for a country already exhausted with austerity and rising unemployment.
