The European Regional Office of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) in solidarity with the 35 trade union leaders of PAME who will be on trial on 20 of February

The European Regional Office of WFTU expresses its class solidarity with the 35 Trade Union leaders of PAME Greece, who will be again on trial on February 20, 2018, because they defended the workers’ rights against anti-labor measures announced by the Greek government along with the troika of the IMF, the EU and the Central European Bank, by organizing a sit-in at the Ministry of Labor on 30th of January 2013, and despite the fact that they were had already been on a first trial  and they had been acquitted while all accusations against them had been rejected.

The European Regional Office of WFTU stands by the side of PAME and demands from the Greek government to definitively stop the prosecution of the 35 trade union leaders, among whom our colleague George Perros, Vice-president of the WFTU and head of PAME.

We assure the working class of Greece, that we follow the daily militant struggles with the guidance of PAME against the harsh anti popular measures and that the class oriented labor movement in   Europe will stand always on your side.
