Pensioners’ Protest at Propylea in Central Athens

ATHENS – Pensioners’ associations will hold a nationwide protest rally at the Propylaea in central Athens on Friday, at 11:00.

According to an announcement, their demands, among others, include the following:

– a minimum pension of 650 euros a month, up from the current 384 euros,

– swift issue of pensions,

– return of withheld subscriptions to trade unions,

– immediate recruitment of doctors, nurses in hospitals,

– the abolition of anti-labour and anti-popular social security laws and protection measures against soaring prices,

– the recapitalisation of social security funds.

“Give increases now – and not in 2023 – to all pensions, both main and supplementary, to the entire amount of pensions paid, along with the amount of the so-called personal difference,” they said.


ATHENS — A far-right party banned from participating in Greece's upcoming election pledged support Friday for a newly founded political group that received Supreme Court approval to field candidates.
