“Fight for work ‘and’ Fight for Growth” were some of the banners of the miners in this year’s mobilization of workers in Thessaloniki under the 80th TIF.

The thousands of miners participated in the rally of GSEE and the EKTH and asked for support in their struggle.

The President of EKTH said: “Our society cannot withstand not even one dismissal” and therefore issued a call for an immediate solution to the issue of the Chalkidiki Mines’ employees.

According to the Cassandra Mines  Steering Committee  4,000 miners were involved, with the slogan “Hands off the Mines”.

According to ANA-MPA, the workers in the mines of Chalkidiki held a few minutes sit-in protest in front of the White Tower.
