"We will not allow the lack of transparency to lead to oblivion" The heart of the citizens starts the "revenge" for justice. The 24-hour strike in Greece 'paralyzes' transport throughout the country
Written by SOT.COM.AL 16 Mars 2023
The collision of two trains in Larisa, Greece, has brought a lot of tension to the citizens, bringing revolts and strikes to the citizens.
For 24 hours, the Hellenic state will block flights and keep ships docked in port as Greek workers walk off the job to protest the country's deadliest rail accident on record, which killed 57 people on February 28, 4 of whom were Albanians.
The mass strikes have been called by Greece's largest private and public sector unions and are expected to halt public services and close state schools, as well as disrupt urban transport. The railway workers have organized continuous strikes.
Protesters have accused the conservative government and the country's political system of ignoring repeated calls from unions on inadequate safety measures on the Greek railway. Protesters will gather in front of parliament in the morning.
"We want to express together our disappointment at what has not been done over the years, but above all our anger at what happened in Tempi," the private sector union, GSEE, said in a statement.
"We will not allow the lack of transparency, cover-up, abdication of responsibility and any delay to lead to oblivion," the statement said, also calling on the government to take action to prevent another disaster and calling for a full investigation into the causes of the collision.
A judicial investigation has been started regarding the accident.
The crash has sparked public outrage. Last week, tens of thousands of people gathered in Athens and other cities across Greece in the most massive protests the government has faced since taking power in 2019.
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, whose term ends in July and is expected to call elections by May, has apologized for the accident and promised to hire more staff and fix the troubled rail sector, with support from the European Union. He also called on protesters not to allow anger to divide society. Mistotakis announced a week ago social support for the families of the victims. Assistance will be provided in studies, monthly pension, etc.
"We must win this war," Mr Mitsotakis said this week, adding that he was determined to eliminate the factors that led to the disaster and apologizing to the Greek people.
