Protesters from a Communist-back labor union forced their way into a government building and clashed with police who used tear gas to expel them. Members of the union are protesting planned reforms to the country's pension and income contribution system, part of ongoing austerity cuts demanded by Greece's euro partners and the International Monetary Fund who are keeping the country afloat with emergency loans.
