Tsipras’ government, betraying the popular will expressed in the referendum of the 5th of July, signed a new Memoranda with the creditors that will only impoverish even more the Greek workers and people.  The anti-austerity movement has taken once against the streets against this plan, with strikes and demonstrations.

During the demonstration called for the 15th of July, the Greek police brutally repressed the more than fifteen thousand workers fighting against the vote of the new agreement, at the appeal of ADEDY and of political organizations such as Antarsya. While the police attacked the demonstrators and arrested them, Syriza’s government passed the Memoranda with the support of the PASOK, New Democracy and To Potami.

Fifty people have been arrested and they face charges with sentences going up to three months of prison. Among them, there are two comrades of OKDE-Spartakos: Manthos Tavoularis, bookstores worker and Secretary of Book shops Workers’ Union and Michalis Goudoumas, social worker, member of the Union of Workers of the Foundation for the Child “Pammakaristos”.

We firmly condemn Tsipras’ government repression and we demand the immediate release and the drop of all charges against all the demonstrators arrested the night of the 15th of July. We call for international solidarity not only against the repression, but also with all the struggles against austerity and against the new Memoranda the Greek workers and people.
