Greece – 28-29 of June: 48 hours at the streets!

(eagainst.com) Calling all over Greece to join Syntagma Square, in order not to allow the Medium Term austerity program to pass.

It has been one month since we have flooded the squares along our country, claiming to get grip of our lives. On 28-29 of June, our struggle comes to a turning point. This government of zero social acceptance is attempting to vote the Medium Term. This plan must not pass. We cannot allow for the looting of our social wealth, we are not willing to tolerate the degradation of the majority of the people in favour of the profits of the few. The communicative maneuvers, the fake reshuffles and the blackmailing of the government, IMF, EU do not fool us. We now know that the dilemma isn’t whether to choose “Memorandum” or “Default”, as memoranda lead with a mathematical accuracy to social devastation.

During the two days of the discussing and voting process of the Medium Term, Tuesday and Wednesday 28-29/6 within the Parliament, unions have released a call for a general 48hour strike. During these two days, no one should work, consume, nor support even the minor breakage of the strike. From the very first morning of the strike we will gather  in Syntagma square along with the peoples’ assemblies from along the country and throughout all the neighborhoods of Athens.

On Wednesday 29/6, the actual day of the voting, we will surround  the Parliament- sending out the message that it should be rejected by the people. It has been one month now that there are no “one-way streets”, and that we possess the power. Now is the time for us to take the next big step.

Now the time is ours, the time for us to speak!

It is either us or them! Real democracy now!
