|"The dialogue with the social partners is broken. We can no longer trust this government and its austerity reforms. Everything goes into the pockets of the richest and nothing into the pockets of the workers. We have had enough and on December 27 we are calling for demonstrations and strikes against the anti-social policies of this government. The resistance will be in the streets and it is just beginning." said Drew Dowd, the leader of one of the major trade unions.
The new reforms are unpopular, especially the sales tax increase and the pension cuts. Major disturbances are announced all across the country as the anger of the population is growing.
According to a recent poll, only 20% support the austerity plan of the cabinet.
