PAME Greece

  PAME called the workers and the class unions to immediately and en masse express their solidarity with the fire victims of Evia and other areas. With the fires still burning, the Greek Government is trying to throw ashes in the eyes of the people who lost their homes and livelihood, with some small benefits far behind the real, immediate and urgent needs of the fire victims. Utilizing the SYRIZA proposals, the Government seeks to advance the “green businesses” and the measures of the Recovery Fund that will lead the fire victims and the people to misery and wretchedness. The fires burned houses and people’s property, while the measures of the Government burn workers’ rights, the healthcare, the welfare, the forest protection, the life of the people in all its manifestations. The fires in many areas were faced by the residents with their own hands. With organization, solidarity and action in the face of the most adverse conditions. Through ashes and tragedy, hope, workers’ mobilization and struggle can be strengthened.
