PAME takes message to the Acropolis

Members of the Communist Party-affiliated PAME labor union place a huge banner atop the Acropolis, reading in English and Greek: «The peoples have the power and never surrender. Organize counterattack!».

About 300 members of the union entered the site on Monday and put up the banner at the foot of the Parthenon before it opened to the public.

The protest by PAME came just ahead of a parliamentary debate on the austerity package, which the government needs to pass if it is to get another package of EU-IMF aid.
