Protesting cleaning staff fired by the Finance Ministry marched holding up buckets and mops during a rally in Athens on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. A 24-hour strike by civil servants disrupted public services in Greece Wednesday as the country’s government struggled to hammer out a deal on further austerity measures with international creditors. Thousands of protesters attended rallies in Athens and other Greek cities, while civil servants have penciled in another 48-hour strike on March 19-20. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)
