The civil servants' union federation ADEDY on Wednesday urged all public-sector workers to participate in Thursday's rally and march, which will begin at Klafthmonos Square in central Athens at 6:00 p.m. and then make its way to Parliament.

In its announcement, ADEDY noted that millions of households were currently unable to meet even their basic bills at the same time as tax-evasion by the rich continued to be rampant.
