    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.

    FILE - In this April 15, 2011 file photo, effigies, made from donkey carcasses, representing Bolivia's President Evo Morales and Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera serve as a road barricade during a protest demanding an increased minimum wage in Apacheta, outskirts of El Alto, Bolivia. The Andean country's long-downtrodden Indian majority adored President Evo Morales as he championed a new constitution that promised the nation's 36 ethnicities unprecedented autonomy. But three years after voters overwhelmingly approved that document, making poor, landlocked Bolivia a "plurinational" republic, the country's first indigenous president is under attack for essentially ignoring it.

    Enrique Pena Nieto (front row 2nd L), presidential candidate for the opposition Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), speaks next to members of their team during a news conference at the PRI's headquarters in Mexico City January 11, 2012. Support for the frontrunner in Mexico's presidential race, opposition candidate Pena Nieto, fell by 2.6 percentage points in the first poll of the year after a series of public gaffes dented his lead. He recently flubbed several public appearances, first struggling to name a single book beyond the Bible that had influenced him and then failing to know the minimum wage or the cost of corn tortillas, a staple Mexican food.
