On Sunday 29/10, a mass demonstration in support of Palestine took place in Athens, following a call by the All Workers’ Militant Front (PAME). Thousands of demonstrators gathered outside the US embassy and then marched to the Israeli embassy.
Addressing the rally, the trade union representatives demanded an end to the massacre of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and to the Israeli occupation. They defended the right of the Palestinian people to have their own homeland on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and they condemned NATO and the EU as being jointly responsible for the crime against Palestine, as well as the Greek government for abstaining from the UN vote on the humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.
Similar demonstrations were held in many cities around Greece.
