    Labour Centre of Thebes: “don’t pass the new barbarian pack μνημονιακων measures”

    The government is continuing the destructive work and after the recent passing of the insurance and tax bill – tombstone for employees and retirees…
    – promotes for a vote in the House, over the Weekend ,a new bill that:
    Removes through new indirect taxes, but eur 1.8 billion from the people’s income.
    Initiates the sale of 19 SOES and high-value property item of a public
    Sets up the guillotine of the “automatic mechanism – cutter” cuts in wages, pensions, social welfare and development costs.
    In particular,
    With the new indirect taxes imposed additional indirect taxes of eur 1.8 billion from the increase in the VAT on basic consumer goods in parallel with the new direct taxes on income of eur 1.8 billion, which is already imposed on employees, pensioners, and all the pop layers:
    Increasing the VAT from 23% to 24%, a development that will bring further massive increases in products of popular consumption.
    Increasing the excise taxes imposed on gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, liquefied petroleum gas, natural gas and kerosene with effect from 1 June.
    By imposing new special taxes on fixed telephony, pay-tv, cigarettes, at the end of the motor, in coffee, in the drinks!
    At the same time, enters into force the plan to sell 19 SOES and high value of public assets (DEH, DEPA, hellenic petroleum, WATER, ΕΥΔΑΘ, ΤΡΕΝΟΣΕ, “Greek”, etc.), with the establishment of “re Fund” privatisation, where we will gather all the proceeds of the sale of the “silver” of the people and the country, to be delivered to the lenders. In the period 2016-18 planned to provide at least 5,8 billion €.
    Also promotes the sale in foreign predatory hedge funds not only “red” and with no outstanding financial obligations of the loans, without guarantee nor prevent the auction of the first housing.
    The smashing of the labour and people’s rights is supplemented with new sexy benefits and aid for their business groups, for the protection and support of their profitability.
    The new “development law” is the paradise of the grand chapter. New tax breaks in the capital at a depth of 15 years, new incentives to μεγαλοξενοδόχους, tax immunity to the operators, free of state funding up to 45% of the investment, a subsidy in thousands of euros for every place of work, new hot money for the μεγαλοεργοδοσία from the “package of Juncker”, while to implement the “investments” will require new cuts in wages, release of redundancies, abolition of employment rights and trade union freedoms.
    This is the unpopular bill that establishes an automatic mechanism – cutter” cuts in wages, pensions, social welfare and development costs in the name of achieving a “surplus” in the state budget for the payment of interest and principal to the lenders and in a way that bypasses the House and cancels out democracy and popular sovereignty in our country. The substance is put into operation a machine φτωχοποίησης working unceasingly a factor of impoverishment on the one hand and surpluses on the other. .
    The only answer is RACE
    The Labour Centre calls on all workers to protest against the new αντεργατικού bill on Sunday, May 22 at 5 pm in the Constitution, will depart buses of the KTEL of Thiva at 2:30 in the afternoon.
    The massive and unified participation in the rally is our response to the new government undertaking impoverishment of the Greek people.
    ALL OF THE SUNDAY AT THE ΣΥΛΛΑΛΗΤΗΡΙΟ OF UNIONS IN THE CONSTITUTION DURING THE NEW ΑΝΤΕΡΓΑΤΙΚΟΥ BILL
    TO PASS THE NEW BARBARIAN PACK ΜΝΗΜΟΝΙΑΚΩΝ MEASURES
