A Reuters journalist reads a copy of a note written by a man who committed suicide at the central Syntagma square in Athens April 5, 2012. The Greek pensioner's suicide outside parliament has quickly become a symbol of the pain of austerity and has been seized upon by opponents of the budget cuts imposed by Greece's international lenders. The 77-year-old retired pharmacist, Dimitris Christoulas shot himself in the head on Wednesday after declaring that financial troubles pushed him over the edge. The suicide note said he preferred to die than scavenge for food. REUTERS/Yorgos Karahalis (GREECE - Tags: OBITUARY SOCIETY CIVIL UNREST BUSINESS MEDIA)

Mourners gather around the coffin of Dimitris Christoulas, who shot himself at central Syntagma square last Wednesday, during a funeral ceremony in Athens April 7, 2012. A 77-year-old retired pharmacist, Christoulas, shot himself in the head in central Athens on Wednesday after saying that financial troubles had pushed him over the edge. A suicide note said he preferred to die rather than scavenge for food. Pensioners have been hard hit by Greece's worst economic crisis since World War Two, suffering cuts of about 25 percent on average in their old-age benefits over the past two years.
