PTS, Argentina

We, the undersigned, condemn the brutal police repression against demonstrators who came out to the streets to oppose the new memorandum signed by Tsipras and The Troika, and backed by the Greek Parliament. 

We, national and provincial deputies, from the Partido de Trabajadores Socialistas (PTS), part of the FIT,  Frente de Izquierda y de los Trabajadores (Left and Workers' Front) from Argentina, demand the immediate release and dropping of all charges by the Greek authorities against those arrested. 

Our solidarity goes to more than fifteen thousand demonstrators who gathered in Syntagma Square in Athens to oppose the austerity measures imposed on the Greek workers and people. We stand by those who join the strike called by the civil servants federation (ADEDY) while inside the Parliament the majority of Syriza and the right-wing pro-austerity parties like New Democracy and To Potami, approved the agreement. 

We condemn the brutal repression by the riot police against the youth and workers, and we demand the dropping of all the charges against near 50 demonstrators. Among them, two militants from OKDE-Spartakos, members of the Anti-capitalist Left Coalition ANTARSYA, one of the organizations calling the demonstrations. One of them is an educator and trade union activist, and the other one is the Secretary of Bookstores Workers from Athens.
