Greece was drowning in debt and looked to be on the brink of default when it received its first EU/IMF bailout in May 2010. The country has since introduced a series of tough austerity measures in a bid to save its economy, much to the discontent of millions of Greeks who have regularly taken to the streets in protest over the past few years.
