Koutsoumbas: Amendments Tabled by KKE Bring Real Relief to the People

November 25, 2020

ATHENS — "In the current difficult conditions, the amendments tabled by the parliamentary group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) provide real relief for the people," stated KKE leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas on Wednesday.

"The government, instead of continuously introducing new packages to rescue the profits of business groups, should immediately support all those impacted by the pandemic and the economic crisis," Koutsoumbas said.

He noted this support should include a one-off 600-euro benefit to all registered unemployed and self-employed entitled to unemployment benefit, payment of the full amount of Christmas bonuses to all furloughed employees included in the programme "Syn-ergasia" and restoring the 13th and 14th salaries and pensions for workers and pensioners.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
