  1. Electricity workers protest at new tax

    GREECE: State power company staff occupied one of its buildings in Athens today in protest at a new property tax levied through electricity bills.

    “Electricity cannot be used as a means of blackmail,” the Genop-Deh trade union said.

    “We will not allow our poor fellow citizens to be left without power.”

    The government has threatened to cut off the electricity of anyone who doesn’t pay.

    Many other workers were also either striking today or planning strikes. Another nationwide walkout is planned for October 19.
