KKE: “Greece 2.0” to Bring More Sacrifices for the People

ATHENS — "The only new things brought by the 'Greece 2.0' plan presented by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis are more sacrifices for workers and the people to help a recovery of the profits of the few," the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) stated on Wednesday.

The National Recovery Plan constitutes a bridge between the Greece of memoranda and post memoranda commitments and the European 'super memorandum', the EU Recovery Fund.

Ιn this regard, a better name than 'Greece 2.0' would be 'Memorandum 5.0', the party added. The people have already paid for the Recovery Fund, while for any disbursement that would lead to the profits of 'green' growth, the people will pay again with new antipopular and anti-worker measures," KKE said.
