Demonstrations against the Greek government's proposed austerity measures turned violent in Athens today, with protesters hurling rocks and firebombs at police. Police have responded with tear gas and batons. If parliament doesn't pass the cost-cutting plan, Greece will not receive a bailout package from the European Union.
