On Thursday, May 26, a delegation of WFTU (World Federation of Trade Unions), PAME (All Workers Militant Front) and MAS (Militant Students Front) held a protest at the Embassy of France in Athens. WFTU was represented by Valentin Pacho deputy WFTU General Secretary.
The action aims to express the Solidarity of the workers and the youth of Greece, and of the WFTU, with the Struggle of the workers of France. In a provocative response, the French Embassy refused to meet with the representatives of the Trade Unions, who were “welcomed” by the Embassy’s Head of Security.
The delegation condemned this behavior of the Embassy, which is in accordance with the intimidation tactics and threats of the French Government, aiming to break the militant spirit of the strikers.
