General Strike on December 8th in Greece - PAME calls for massive, militant response of the working class

A general, nationwide strike will take place on Thursday 8th December in Greece. Numerous labour unions, confederations and centers, students and women's associations have called for mass participation in the strike, against the policies of the SYRIZA government, the EU and the Capital.
The Government of SYRIZA, with the EU-IMF-ECB, are realizing the demands of the business groups and plan the imposition of: 
Liberalization of massive layoffsNew cut of the-already cut- minimum wage, Abolition of any benefit left, Complete imposition of individual or company based contracts, in order to cut further the average salary, Further imposition of flexible working relations, New cuts in pensions and social security rights, Legalization of employers’ “lockout”, Imposition of new trade union legislation that will abolish the right to strike and destroy trade union rights and freedoms and more measures.

PAME (All-Workers Militant Front) calls for massive, militant response of the working class. December 6 is a day of national action, activities, campaigns, rallies, discussions, meetings and conferences, where all unions, federations and labour centres massively inform the working class on the strike, the new measures, the planning of the industrialists, the bankers, the ship-owners, the need for the workers to fight back. PAME calls all unions to take all necessary measures for the success of the Strike.
On December 8 Everything to a standstill! No one to Work!
The demonstration in Athens will take place at 10.30 am at Omonia Square and in Thessaloniki at 10.30 am in front of Venizelos statue.
