GREECE – General strike and protest against price increases and war!

On April 06, 2022, a 24-hour general strike was called throughout Greece. Large parts of the country were at a standstill, tens of thousands went on strike and took to the streets!

The two largest cities, Athens and Thessaloniki, had the largest participation, but the protest spread throughout the whole country. At the center were the price increases and the demand for higher wages. But there were also protests against the imperialist war in Ukraine and against the participation of Greece in the crimes of NATO.

On April 9, there was another demonstration against the imperialist war in Ukraine. From the beginning, the police tried to stop the protest with provocations, finally attacking the demonstrators with chemicals and batons. However, the demonstrators always joined together in a strong block and resolutely continued the demonstration!
