Larco workers take protest against mining company's sale to Athens streets
Employees at state mining firm Larco, which is facing privatization, protested in central Athens on Tuesday morning.
The firmís staff oppose the companyís sale and chanted ďItís not just Larco thatís for sale, but the whole of GreeceĒ.
Larco is one of three companies, along with Hellenic Defense Systems (EAS) and the Hellenic Vehicle Industry (ELVO) that the troika is pushing Athens to either liquidate or sell as they produce combined losses of 150 million euros per year.
The troika rejected the governmentís plans to liquidate ELVO and EAS while they are still in operation. The coalition is due to submit a new plan this week.
