We begin Wednesday’s Pictures in the News in Basildon, England, where Irish Travelers are being evicted from a former scrap yard site after a 10-year struggle. In Athens, demonstrators clash with riot police in front of the Greek parliament  during the start of a two-day general strike in an all-out effort to block a new austerity bill that supporters say lawmakers must pass this week to forestall a state bankruptcy.

Elsewhere, Tibetan exiles rally in New Delhi to express solidarity with their  countrymen and to protest China’s tight grip over Buddhist practices; in Tokyo,  a model illuminated by UV light presents a creation by Taiwanese designer Johan Ku; and an ethereal image taken from the International Space Station featuring aurora australis, seen from a point over the southeast Tasman Sea near southern New Zealand.

Add stops in Switzerland, Thailand, Bangladesh and Germany to round out the report.
