Tens of thousands of people participated in the huge strike rallies in Athens and other cities
On 16 March, tens of thousands of workers, university and school students, through their unions demanded that the crime in Tempe should not be covered up. With their banners and slogans, they pointed out that the capitalist profit, the current government of ND and the previous ones of SYRIZA and PASOK that followed the EU policy, are responsible for the conditions and criminal shortcomings that led to the tragic train crash.
The GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, attended the strike rally in the city of Kavala and made the following statement to the media:
“Today, in the 21st century, the modernization that the Greek people, the youth and their movement seek and struggle for is the meeting of all contemporary popular social needs. It is not the modernization of the ‘guild’ of private companies, of investors, of big contractors, of profit, of easy money, of fraud, served by the current government and all previous governments, leading the Greek people to the bloody tracks of disaster.
I wish strength to all of you. Today mass militant demonstrations and strike rallies are taking place throughout Greece. We struggle for the strengthening of our people, of the labour–popular movement, of the KKE!”
