Eighth General Strike Shuts Down Half Greek Economy

25-02-2011 16:14

Demonstrators resisted the usual police violence
On Wednesday, Greek workers took part in their eighth one day general strike since 'centre-left' Prime Minister Prime Minister George Papandreou started imposing drastic cuts and attacks on working class conditions. The strike was called by the GSEE private sector union confederation, and ADEDY, its equivalent organisation in the public sector. It was the first such strike of 2011, and in line with the union bosses' token policy of calling workers out once every few months, while their colleagues in government get on with their work of destroying people's lives.

Democracy promotion: America’s new regime change formula

24-02-2011 19:48
