A tourist takes pictures of the banners over the defensive walls of the ancient Acropolis, Greece's most famous monument, on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, in Athens. About 100 protesters from the Greek Communist Party unfurled the banners in Greek and English reading: "Peoples of Europe - Rise Up." Police did not intervene as the protesters carrying red flags stood beside the ancient Parthenon, beside the two large banners. Greece's cash-strapped government announced sweeping spending cuts worth euro 30 billion ($40b) through 2012 on Sunday, in order to secure a vital rescue package of loans from the International Monetary Fund and other countries using the euro.
