Greece’s 595 cleaners protested for 20 months and won


The reinstatement of the group of cleaning ladies who have been protesting their unlawful redundancy from the Finance Ministry for the past 20 months, was enforced today. The women who camped outside the ministry  endured police brutality, harsh weather conditions and the apathy of the previous government, but never gave up on their demands. Instead, they became symbols of defiance and courage.

Mr.Varoufakis, current Finance Minister, stated the following:

”While the ministry had spent millions on the salaries of counsellors whose advice only contributed to the decontruction of our social welfare, the cleaning staff who were recipients of very low salaries, were just thrown out on the street.”

To celebrate the fruition of their fair struggle, a party with food and wine is to take place this evening outside the ministry.
