19th Congress of KKE

Workers-Farmers, one voice and one fist

Thousands of farmers flooded the centre of Athens, outside the Parliament building, on the 12th and 13th of February. The farmers are waging a struggle of economic survival and for over 20 days and nights have set up roadblocks at around 100 points on the national highways. At the initiative of 68 roadblocks, a decision was taken to hold a national farmers' demonstration in Syntagma Square in Athens.

It was decided to hold a demonstration as the next step to escalate the struggle of the small and medium farmers, in a meeting held a week ago in Nikaia, Larisa, where it was also decided to maintain and reinforce the roadblocks, to intensify their local activity, to reject every attempt by the government to set up a dialogue in order to manipulate the farmers' struggle without taking back any of the measures that are driving the small and medium farmers off the land.

Tens of thousands of farmers reached Athens by coach and ferry to demonstrate, while those gathered enthusiastically welcomed a symbolic number of 18 tractors, which had set out a day earlier from the country's biggest roadblock on the national highway at Nikaia (Larisa).The tractors that arrived after a 14 hour journey were bedecked with flags depicting Marinos  Antypas (1872-1907), the socialist revolutionary who was murdered by the big landowners.


The working people demanded: Take back the law-guillotine

The largest strike mobilization of recent years was held on 4/2/2016. Thousands of people, workers, farmers, self-employed, students and school-students, filled the streets of all the country's major cities, with as their central demand the withdrawal of the SYRIZA-ANEL government's draft law for the social security system.

This law has been characterized as a "law-guillotine", as it reduces pensions, increases the social security contributions of the workers, reduces state spending on the public system of health and welfare and increases the retirement age.
