KKE supports the struggles of healthcare workers and seamen

"The heart of the struggle today beats within public hospitals and ports across the country.

In the hospitals, where health workers are demanding what is needed to avoid leading the public health system, through the fault of the government, from the current 'heart attack' to a complete collapse. We support them on large-scale hirings, requisitioning of private-sector facilities, as well as immediate measures in the workplaces and public transport.

"We also support the seamen, who are on strike to remain on the ships with collective labour agreements, decent wages and insurance rights against the attack of the government and the shipowners," the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), Dimitris Koutsoumbas, said on Tuesday.
