Why it is now necessary to create a pan-European labour – popular front of counterattack.

The huge mobilizations in our country recently showed that the majority of workers, self-employed people and poor farmers are against the barbaric measures of the government, the European Union and the IMF.

PAME, expressing the class oriented trade union movement of our country, had revealed in time that the economic crisis is a European and a global phenomenon and not only a Greek one.

Workers are not responsible for this crisis.

The debt of Greece came from the tax benefits to big capital, its profitability, the excessive military expenses which served the plans of NATO, the capitalist path of development.

The industrialists, ship-owners, bankers, large skilled tradesmen are responsible for the crisis.

The asset of the large banks was increased from 275 billion euros in 2004 to 579 billion euros in 2009.

The off shore companies (of Greek interests) which are more than 10,000 trade about 500 billion euros tax-free annually.

The tax evasion of the 6,000 large companies which are known is 15 billion euros.

The companies that are in the stock market had 11.8 billion euros profits in 2009.

PAME struggles together with the poor self-employed and farmers so that the measures will not be applied, the people will not bankrupt; we struggle for a development that will meet peoples’ needs instead of serving capital’s profits.

720 billion euros was decided to be given to European banks at the Summit of the 16 member-states of the eurozone (in 2008 the governments of the EU gave two trillion euros). There is money for the capital, despite the crisis, but not for the people. Simultaneously, they have decided a long period of austerity, unemployment and hit on the rights of the peoples of Europe to increase the profits of monopolies.

That is why it is now necessary to create a pan-European labour – popular front of counterattack.
