- OPEN MEETING PERAMA
The Perama Open Meeting, participating in the protest and calling a meeting of neighborhood committees and residents from all over Attica.
Thursday 19/7/2012 at 7:30 pm at the Ministry of Finance, Syntagma Square
Against the electricity hike and all hikes, proposing demonstrations throughout Greece on the same day, with forms of actions to be decided by the local assemblies and committees.
The slogan for the assembly is: NO HOME WITHOUT ELECTRICITY / NO GREEK WITHOUT A HOME
The announcement states:
We are 1.5 million unemployed, and every day our numbers grow. We will not pay the new taxes. Under the Memorandum, Greek society is being attacked across the board. We have no money to pay new taxes. Our pensions have already been slashed. Hospitals are closing for lack of funding. We have no money to pay for our medicine and when we protest, you attack us with chemical weapons -- free of charge.
We are unable to survive with dignity or offer dignity to our families. The majority of us can no longer take care of our own basic needs. We do not have enough food to feed ourselves and our families.
We have never avoided paying taxes, but we object to paying for this odious debt to private banks. This was a conspiracy at the highest levels of the Greek government and the banking industry. We will not pay into an unjust tax system, where the burden lies on the backs of the poor while protecting the rich
In order for the society to revive, we need free health care, free education.
You are selling out every public asset; in protest to this robbery of the Greek People WE DON'T PAY TAXES.
