1ST MAY 2018 – Against exploitation and imperialistic war for the final victory of the peoples

Greeks and migrants – All together in the strike demonstration at 10am in Syntagma

By strengthening the organization and unity of Greek and migrants’ workers, we honor the 1st of May, the International Day of the working class.We honor all those who gave their lives for 8hour workday in order to have rights to work and life.

All In The Strike Mobilizations

Workers, unemployed, young workers,

May 1st is strike, day of the world working class, inspection of our forces and a springboard of new struggles. We honor our dead, Chicago in 1886, the cigarette workers of May 36, the two hundreds of Kessariani of the 1st May 44.

On Tuesday, April 17, unions, workers and students rallied in thousands outside the Courthouse of Athens in solidarity with the arrested young militants, who were injured, kidnapped and arrested during the antiimperialist demonstration of Monday, April 16. When the arrested militants were brought to the courthouse, they were welcomed with slogans against imperialism and applause of support and “booed” the police.

In spite of no evidence against them and that they were in fact assaulted by the police, the arrested militants are accused with very heavy charges and were given trial date for April 25. They were set free, pending trial.

After the bombardment of the imperialist governments of the USA, the UK and France in Syria, we can easily see who are the friends and who are the enemies of these imperialist forces. The violent attack with tear gas and other chemicals implemented by SYRIZA/ANEL Government against the protest action of anti-imperialist youth in Greece clearly proves that this government has an unconditional support for all the imperialist policies that kill thousands of innocent people in every corner of the world.
