Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga on Saturday addressed a protest rally organised in Syntagma Square in central Athens by the PAME trade union faction, which is affiliated to the KKE, against the new tax measures announced by the government.
Papariga urged those present to "push aside their fears, self-delusions and hesitation or we, the working people, the working class, and especially young people will find ourselves literally up against the wall. The countdown for the rebirth and counterattack of the movement must begin now."
PAME members also underlined that their presence at an afternoon rally in Thessaloniki will be "dynamic".
