The "I won't pay" movement in Greece

MSNBC report from AP reporter Elena Becatoros about the efforts of a variety of Greek professionals and workers trying to derail the official Greek government austerity measures by simply not requiring payment for services:

"They blockade highway toll booths to give drivers free passage. They cover subway ticket machines with plastic bags so commuters can't pay. Even doctors are joining in, preventing patients from paying fees at state hospitals. Some call it civil disobedience. Others a freeloading spirit. Either way, Greece's "I Won't Pay" movement has sparked heated debate in a nation reeling from a debt crisis that's forced the government to take drastic austerity measures — including higher taxes, wage and pension cuts, and price spikes in public services. "
