Thousands Take to the Streets in Massive Strike Action

PAME reported on February 18 that thousands of workers had taken to the streets in more than 60 cities all over Greece in a massive strike action in a militant response to the employers and the government.

The workers, according to the report, are demanding free, public social security for all and cancellation of the anti-worker government Bill that privatises healthcare and social security.

From midnight, workers all over Greece formed picket lines and stopped production. In Athens all public transport was halted. Metro, trains, buses and ships all came to a standstill. Thousands of workers then came onto the strike demonstrations. The demonstrations welcomed international solidarity from unions from many countries, and expressed solidarity with the upcoming strike of the workers of France.
