|George Mavrikos, WFTU General Secretary.|
In a statement issued on Thursday, the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), which represents more than 92 million workers worldwide, publicly denounces the U.S. government which has refused to issue entry visitor visa to the Federation's General Secretary George Mavrikos.
More specifically, as it has been revealed, the U.S. State Department has classified the WFTU in the "Terrorist Travel" list which refers to terrorist organisations!
As the statement of the WFTU points out "the stance of the U.S. State Department is anti-democratic and aims to prevent the free trade unionist activity and strengthening of the militant trade unionist movement of the workers in the USA. At the same time it consists an intentional discrimination against the WFTU and its right to exercise its role in the United Nations; a role that exists since 1945".

Action of Solidarity with the workers of France.
Source: All-Workers Militant Front (PAME).
ATHENS- On Thursday, May 26, a delegation of PAME (All Workers Militant Front), WFTU (World Federation of Trade Unions) and MAS (Militant Students Front) held a protest at the Embassy of France in Athens.
The action aims to express the Solidarity of the workers and the youth of Greece, and of the WFTU, with the Struggle of the workers of France. In a provocative response, the French Embassy refused to meet with the representatives of the Trade Unions, who were “welcomed” by the Embassy’s Head of Security.
The delegation condemned this behavior of the Embassy, which is in accordance with the intimidation tactics and threats of the French Government, aiming to break the militant spirit of the strikers.
