Communist Party of Greece Statement on Support of People of Culture

ATHENS – "The artists and all those working in the field of art and culture that perennially struggle with unemployment and occasional work are now, due to the pandemic, in a dire state. Concerts, and theatres, cinemas and museums, along with festivals and so many more venues have suspended their operation, leaving all those people hanging, without the 800-euro subsidy for the vast majority of them," said Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas on Thursday.

"KKE, from the first minute, supported their claims and their mobilisations and submitted a law proposal in parliament for immediate measures in support of the workers in culture to guarantee their survival," said Koutsoumbas.


ATHENS - Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras, in statements from Zappeion Mansion on Tuesday, demanded the immediate dissolution of the parliament and the holding of general elections within three weeks, as stipulated by the Constitution.
