Solidarity with Greece forum

first_imgA forum will be held in Victoria to show solidarity with Greece has been organised by Greek Australians to show their support to the Greek austerity crisis. Live skype interviews will be conducted with participants on these social movements. In recent months there has been an almost catastrophic decline in living standards. Unemployment is now over 20 per cent, the demand for food aid and medical care via charities has massively increased and public services have, in many cases, ceased to exist; the only parts of the State that still function as normal are the police and the army. There will also be music from a 5 piece Rembetika kompania (Greek oriental folk), a short film from the movement against austerity, and poetry from Greek-Australian writers. Solidarity with Greece: We owe nothing, We’re not selling, We wont pay! will be held at the Uniting Church Hall, Northcote 251 High Street, Northcote, 7:00 pm on Thursday 29 March.
