Greece is facing three days of escalating anti-austerity strikes, with state hospital doctors, taxi drivers, transport workers and journalists walking off the job. The strikes come as the wobbly coalition government prepares to present another austerity package in Parliament later Monday. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)
