Greek police fire tear gas at pensioners during Athens protest

Police in Greece have fired tear gas at pensioners who took to the streets of Athens to protest cuts made to their benefits, which come as part of an austerity drive dictated by international lenders. Riot police blocked the paths of about 1,500 pensioners who were attempting to march to the office of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. Greece has been dealing with the impact of persistent austerity measures over the past seven years, dictated by creditors as a remedy for years of financial mismanagement.
