Troika tightens grip on Greece – Greek communists speak out.

The Press Office of the Central Committee of KKE has issued an announcement on the government’s agreement at the Eurogroup.
The announcement is as follows:
“Independently of how it will be called, the government agreement is in both form and substance an extension of the Memorandum, involving strict monitoring, the evaluation of the economy by the institutions (the Troika), and, most importantly, the continuation of anti-popular reforms. Whatever revision to the program, e.g, lower primary surpluses, will not be implemented to relieve the people, but to reinforce the recovery of capitalin other words, capitalist profit, while for the people, the anti-popular measures adopted in previous year remain active. This is why even the breadcrumbs promised by the government through its program will depend on agreement with European partners and on the condition that fiscal austerity and economic recovery will not be jeopardized.
The people, who have been bled dry all these years, and were hoping for something better, must not give in to disappointment. They must not give up on the goal of the real abolition of Memoranda, implementation laws, the goal of recovering their losses. They can achieve that by moving on the path of struggle, aimed at disengagement from the EU, the unilateral cancellation of debt, the socialization of the wealth of the country.”

Trump has said if they manages to keep the death toll to 100,000, they’d be doing a “very good job.” Instead of protecting US citizens, his administration launches a campaign of misinformation & anti-China conspiracy theories blaming China for Covid19.

Economically speaking we would expect food prices to go up Overall social cost of production is higher since the social wage has necessarily gone up Millions of workers are not working & yet, strangely for capitalism they are paid, albeit less than before

We are living in difficult times, being encouraged to socially distance ourselves. It is essential that our union organisation remains intact. Indeed, in this environment our collective organisations are not only needed but should be made to thrive. https://digital.tuc.org.uk/working-remotely-for-trade-unions/
