France General Strike: KKE and PAME on the side of French workers

Members and supporters of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and its youth wing KNE, who live and work in France, participated in the large strike rallies of December 5th.

As 902 portal reported, holding banners with the slogan "Popular alliance against the blow on pensions by the government and the EU", KKE members and supporters stood on the side of French workers, demonstrating in Paris, Marseille, Grenoble and other big cities.

On the occasion of the General Strike in France, the KKE forces tried to highlight the reasons behind the anti-people, anti-worker policies on Social Security which are directed by the EU and the OSCE and are implemented throughout Europe.

Apart from KKE and KNE, a delegation from the All-Workers Militant Front (PAME) from Greece also participated in the strike demonstrations.

More specifically, the official site of PAME points out the following:

PAME, a member of the WFTU, is firmly on the side of French workers in their fight against the Business Groups- Macron Government -EU anti workers’ measures.

The workers of France, with their huge participation in the December 5th Strike and the strike rallies, are sending the message of the continuation and escalation of the Struggle.
