FILE- In this Sept. 28, 2012 file photo, private hospital nurse Paraskevi Petropoulou holds up her unpaid electricity and income tax bills during a protest outside the Health Ministry in central Athens. Petropoulou said that she has not been paid for more than five months, because the government owes money to private hospitals who in turn are unable to pay their employees. To the casual visitor, all might appear well in Athens, but scratch the surface and you find a society in freefall, ripped apart by the most vicious financial crisis the country has seen in half a century.
