    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter kostis36 attended today's protests in Athens, Greece, both to document and to take part in the march. He has been hit hard by the country's economic crisis - losing 50% of his salary and barely clinging to his job, while the price of basic foodstuffs continues to rise. "We are furious because even after the elections we got promises but nothing happens," he said. "It's the same policy but just a different party. For the last few hours on the protest me and my colleagues discussed how disappointed we are, we have no hope." He also says he and his fellow Greeks stand in total support of the Spanish people who protested on Tuesday evening. "It is the same policies that strangle the same people. We 100 percent stand with the Spanish," he said.
