A firefighter raises flares as he protests in front of the parliament in Athens February 28, 2012. Policemen, firefighters and coast guards protested on Tuesday against planned wage and pension cuts. Greek ministers agreed deep cuts to the minimum wage on Tuesday, slashing living standards for low-paid workers as Athens began implementing measures demanded by international lenders in return for a 130 billion euro (110 billion pound) rescue package.
