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.


The Greek tourism market is seeing a remarkable recovery and while it is most obvious in Athens – that’s where the media is – the powerful signs include the packed ferries and planes that connect with the islands of the South Aegean, with their iconic whitewashed houses that are what most people outside Greece think about when they contemplate visiting.
