Received the General Secretariat of the General Union of Palestinian Workers news of the arrest of 36 trade unionists and national leader of the Union of Greek PAME on Wednesday 01/30/2013. Therefore, the General Union of Palestinian Workers condemns dramatically and condemns these barbaric acts by the Greek government. And it’s not true that the arrest of trade unionists within the Ministry of Labour and from inside the Government House and the reason they came to demand the correct Social Security Act, which should guarantee a decent life for workers in all the world.
So we ask the government for the immediate release of all trade unionists and driving arrest in Greek prisons. We also call on the international community and international trade union organizations to intervene rapidly to stand by PAME, workers and union leaders detained and all union activists in Greece. With comradely greetings to you and all the friendly workers Greece.
