Papariga press conference at TIF

Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga called on the working classes to condemn the governmental-European salvation plan for Greece, calling it a "plan for bankruptcy of the people", during a press conference at the 76th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) on Wednesday.
"This plan must go bankrupt in the people's conscience. We must commence a systematically organised effort to obstruct the measures," she said, adding that all the measures could not be obstructed immediately, but many of them could.
Papariga charged that cutbacks were being made in schools, in programmes for the people with special needs, and questioned whether "when the funds for the schools for the blind are cut, is this a plan for the salvation of the people?"
"Whatever they take away, they will not give back," she warned, and opined that "the non-payment of surtaxes is legitimised today" by those who don't have the money to pay but also from those waging the battle at the formers' side.
"Bankruptcy of the people is not the same with partial bankruptcy of the big capital," she said, as "the capital reacts with mergers and collaborations".
Papariga also said that German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Nicolas Sarkozy "are not anti-Greeks, they are capitalists", warning that "we must not confuse the 'class element' with the 'emotional' element".
On reserve labor, she said that it means "unemployment for many".
