Greece's parliament has approved a new package of austerity measures needed to release the next instalment of its multi-billion-dollar bailout.
The tax rises and further cuts to pensions were sought by Greece's foreign creditors.
As MPs voted, anti-austerity protesters clashed with police in central Athens.
Eurozone finance ministers meet on Monday to decide if Greece has done enough to receive a €7.5bn (£6.4bn; $8.3bn) loan plus debt relief.
Speaking after the vote, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Greece had met its commitments on reforms and now expected lenders to agree to debt relief.
What with the general election, Brexit, Trump, Putin, North Korea etc the issue of Greece has fallen out of the headlines over the last few years. They are still getting EU bailouts, mostly paid for by Germany and Greece is still having crippling austerity measures as a result to keep getting the EU dosh.
A family member of mine went to Greece about 18 months ago and confirmed they were having real problems as opposed to our so called cuts here. People were struggling finding enough money for food with soaring unemployment and since then, came the migrant crisis.
Greece needs to alter its economy to meet its own needs, except one problem, it can't as its a member of the Euro zone. It needs to change its interest rates, but this is not allowed.
There's a couple of issues here, one is of Germany. How much longer will German tax payers keep bailing out the Greeks? If you read the German press two years ago, the Germans were not happy with this situation, it's only got worse since.
The other issue is with Greece itself. To keep getting the EU (German) money, Greece has to keep these severe austerity measures in place, the same ones that Tsipras said he would scrap if he became prime minster then did a complete u-turn on when he realised Greece would collapse without the bailout money. But how much longer can Greece keep these austerity measures while on a permanent drip of EU welfare?
Finally, if the bailout money does stop for whatever reason, or the Greek economy does finally disintegrate, will this finally be the end of the EU? I confidently predicted the EU would end two years ago on another forum because of the Greek bailout plans, but two years on it's still hanging on.
