(3 Nov 2016) Pensioners staged an anti-government rally in Greece on Thursday to protest against a new round of cuts introduced under the country’s international bailout programme.
The protesters marched through central Athens to the labour ministry in a peaceful rally, as the country’s largest labour union called a 24-hour strike for 8 December.
Under pressure to make deeper cuts, the left-wing government has imposed reductions on most supplementary pensions that are paid out by smaller state-backed funds.
Inspectors from the International Monetary Fund and European Union institutions are due to return to Athens this month to oversee major changes to labour laws and union regulations, as well as measures to ease pressure on domestic banks from high levels of non-performing loans.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Greek workers shut down country in general strike
Friday 9th December 2016
Private-sector workers were also involved in well-supported strike action for the first time in months.
Tens of thousands of trade unionists marched in demonstrations organised separately by the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE) and the Communist Party-linked All-Workers Militant Front (PAME) in Athens, while over 5,000 took to the streets of Thessaloniki and other cities held their own mobilisations.
Seafarers too are involved in rolling 48-hour stoppages that have developed into indefinite strike action, which has become a focus for wider solidarity and there will be a mobilisation in their support today.
Years of recession and austerity have left nearly a quarter of Greeks unemployed, with most no longer receiving any state benefits and a quarter of the economy wiped out.
But the “left radical” Syriza government is still working on new measures expected to remove protection for private-sector jobs and distressed mortgage-holders.
Bailout negotiators are expected to return to Athens next week, with agreement possible by the end of the month on terms linked to the next emergency bailout.
“We’ve been at this stage before. Everyone has to stay calm,” said Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos.
