Greece -Public sector strike -September 24, 2013

ADEDY, the public sector umbrella union, organised a 48-hour strike against plans to cut thousands of public sector jobs. The trade union said government efforts to reduce the 600,000 strong civil services was ´the most merciless plan´ to eliminate workers' rights. The government is firing workers indiscriminately at a time when the country in enduring its worst peacetime crisis and record unemployment. The labour action also turned into a protest to mark the killing of an anti-racism rapper by a self-proclaimed supporter of the far-right Golden Dawn.
