May Day 2019: Thousands joined PAME rally in Athens honoring Workers' Day

Thousands of workers, students, pensioners, men and women of every age, joined a massive rally organised by the All-Workers Militant Front (PAME) and class-based unions in the center of Athens on May 1st, honoring the International Workers' Day

The demonstrators sent a powerful message of resistance and counter-attack to the anti-worker policy unleashed by the capital, the EU and the bourgeois governments. Under the banners of PAME and the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), the protesters honored the heroes of the working class and the heroic struggles of the labor movement.

In Athens, the rally of PAME took place in Syntagma Square, where the member of PAME's Executive Secretariat Giorgos Perros delivered a major speech. A greeting message was delivered by the Ambassador of the state of Palestine Marwan Toumbassi. The rally was accompanied by a cultural program, including poems and songs.

PAME's May Day rally was attended by the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Dimitris Koutsoumbas and other Politburo members.

Similar demonstrations, honoring the Worker's Day, took place in Thessaloniki and other cities across Greece.
