A massive protests at the Ministries of Labor and Migration Policy, as well as at the Embassy of Bangladesh, was organized on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, immigrant land workers from the area of Nea Manoloda, in Southern Greece.
Dozens of migrants, most of whom lived in a camp that was burned last June, traveled by buses from the region to Athens, expressing their determination to fight against the miserable living and work conditions they face.
It was the second mobilization organized by the Federations of Workers in Textile, Pharmaceutical, Food Industries, and Construction Workers Federation as well as the Local Regional Trade Union Center of Amaliada, as a similar initiative had preceded last September.
The trade union delegations have been alongside land-workers through visits and solidarity initiatives. The unions denounced the immense responsibilities of employers, embassies of immigrant countries and the Greek government of SYRIZA for the situation faced by land workers.
