BRUSSELS — Four years into the euro zone's debt crisis there was anger but also resignation at the traditional May Day labor protests and rallies around Europe. In Greece, the day was marked by the 20th one-day strike since the start of the crisis. Trade unions called for "mass mobilization" of protesters, as a general strike shut down ferry services and transportation, and left hospitals with reduced staff on Wednesday.
The Greek Finance Ministry has compiled a report that includes all relative available documents from more than six decades. The report will be submitted to Greece's legal advisers and Athens will be left to decide how to officially proceed with the claim.
