50,000 Anti-Austerity Marchers in Greece

It's a general strike, by the economic clueless, who want government support, when the government doesn't have any money.

Their solution eurozone (read Germany) should give them the money.

Specifically, the protest is against planned government spending cuts of 11.5bn euros ($15bn; £9bn). The government of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is proposing to save money by slashing pensions and raising the retirement age to 67.

UPDATE: Greek police fired teargas at protesters throwing stones and fire bombs in Athens.
