Public services in Greece have been brought to a standstill by a general strike, in protest at continued austerity measures.
However, torrential rain meant the main rallies had to be cancelled, leaving only smaller groups on the streets.
The 24-hour strike is still disrupting transport, schools, hospitals and tax offices, the BBC reports.
The strike coincides with a visit by Greece's creditors, who say the country may need yet more budget cuts next year to fill a funding gap.
The Government insists Greeks cannot take any more austerity and that it is time for debt relief.
Greece has held more than 30 general strikes since early 2010.
