On November 9 a General Strike took place in Greece. A strike that was decided, was prepared and succeeded thanks to the action of the militant trade unions of Greece. It was one of the most massive and successful strikes of recent years. In this strike the class unions of Greece had the massive support and solidarity of militant unions from all over the world and at the central Strike Rally of PAME in Athens attended the entire Secretariat of the World Federation of Trade Unions-WFTU/FSM, expressing its solidarity in practice.
On the day of the General Strike in Greece, the ETUC once again posted on its TWITTER account, material, video from the big strike rally of PAME, presenting it as a mobilization of the GSEE, the member of the ETUC in Greece.
We note that the ETUC and ITUC in 2019 published a slanderous letter against PAME and the class trade unions in Greece speaking of “violent, Stalinist minorities,” “the minority group PAME”.
This minority group, these unions, federations and Regional Trade Unions of Greece organised one of the biggest strike actions in Greece in recent years and this action is what the liars, slanderers, bureaucrats of Brussels and servants of the monopolies want to exploit.
This attitude is not only in Greece, as recently the forces of the ETUC, such as the President of the CFDT in France attacked and slandered the great strike of the refinery workers. They are enemies of the workers’ struggles!
The ETUC-ITUC are servants of the USA-EU and the business groups.
For years these forces accepted and co-signed the anti-worker measures in Greece and Europe, supported the anti-worker memoranda, the wage cuts.
And when they cannot prevent workers’ mobilizations they attempt to hijack the great workers’ struggles to create a “militant” profile.
The workers of Greece know you well
No more with your lies!
The “minority” group PAME.
