The Greek Parliament will vote Wednesday on the further austerity required for another EU bailout loan. The vote comes amid weeklong nationwide protests that shut down most public transport, schools, banks and government offices. Tens of thousands of union workers backed by the left-leaning opposition are expected to turn out Wednesday to protest the new austerity measures being debated, which amount to some 13.5 billion euros in cuts by 2016. Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is expected to narrowly win the support required to pass the austerity package. Samaras’ 176-member conservative-liberal coalition needs to gather 151 votes out of 300 in parliament for the new measures to pass.
