Greece 2.0 plan will bring more sacrifices for the workers, says the KKE

"The only new things brought by the 'Greece 2.0' plan presented by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis are more sacrifices for workers and the people to help a recovery of the profits of the few," the Press Bureau of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) stated on Wednesday.

The National Recovery Plan constitutes a bridge between the Greece of memorandums and post memorandums commitments and the European 'super memorandum', the EU Recovery Fund. 

Ιn this regard, a better name than 'Greece 2.0' would be 'Memorandum 5.0', the party added. The people have already paid for the Recovery Fund, while for any disbursement that would lead to the profits of 'green' growth, the people will pay again with new anti-people and anti-worker measures," KKE stressed out. 

The Communist Party added that the satisfaction of the contemporary needs of the people and youth preoccupies a "rupture" with the strategy of the EU, the bourgeois class and the parties which serve her. "The interest of the Greek people exists in the struggle for different road of development, focused on their own aims for life with contemporary rights" and not in a policy that sacrifices health, life and people's needs for the profits of a few business groups. 

Earlier, in a press conference, Deputy Minister Akis Skertsos presented the so-called National Recovery and Resilience Plan, pointing out that "Greece 2.0' programme is a coherent plan for investments and reforms that aims to update Greece's 'software and hardware' - to speak the language of young people - as it is a plan for the future".
