Greek pensioners are getting hit at least 3 ways from Sunday: 1) the
healthcare sector is in shambles; 2) their pensions are being cut back; and
3) the VAT tax is decimating their budgets.
The 50th anniversary celebration/protests for Medicare in the US are an
opportunity for us to make the connections. Lord knows our seniors are in
dire straits themselves on the same fronts.
Free, socialized healthcare under worker/community control, from the US to
Greece!
55 and out retirement at union-scale wages, from America to Athens!
(ps concrete solidarity is already under way from nurse unions here, more
on that soon.
