(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Update from intervention against the white night in Thermi (16/12) and the strikes on Sunday 17/12 - Coordinate action against Sunday work and freed hours (gr) [machine translation]

Saturday 16/12: Intervention on the commercial streets of Thermi against the white night ---- On Saturday, December 16th, the municipality and the Association of Professional Trade Thermi organized a white night for another year, as happened a week ago in Oraiokastro. These barbers for the workers of the bosses and mayors took place this year in a climate of intense debate for their expansion to other areas of the city, such as the center. On Saturday night, the Coordination of Action Against Sunday Work and the Liberalized Hours, carried out in Thermi intervention with text distribution in shops and passers-by, banner posting and hanging banners in the central square where events took place. ---- Sunday 17/12: Strike Blocks Against the Abolition of Sunday Holidays ---- For another Sunday, workers in trade were asked to work while they are experiencing the most exhausting period of the year starting with black friday on November 24 and continuing with holiday and 3 consecutive Sundays (Christmas and New Year Eve). The holiday season for commerce workers is synonymous with exhausting hours, unpaid overtime (officially the black friday day recorded 23 violations in 98 department stores that were checked, but apparently these are only the tip of the iceberg) and more intensification to meet the targets that bosses put. Characteristic of their intentions is the effort at the McArthurGlenn Discount Village at Spata Airport (but also in other malls) to inaugurate after the black friday and the boxing day, opening on the 26th of December and probably on January 2 . This move is now stopped, but it is indicative of the working age of the working people in the trade.
Coordinating action against Sunday's work and liberated hours also gave Sunday a fight with strike blockades. OIE has made a strike but has not made a symbolic presence on the road, while the Union of Commerce Employees of Thessaloniki has made little intervention in Notos and Public but without proceeding with exclusions and with an early withdrawal before the peak time of consumer traffic. The Coordination and the collectives supporting it initially blocked both Notos and Public but also H & M and benneton. Following the withdrawal of the Union of Employees it was considered necessary to support the blockade in Public and Notos and all the entrances of the shopping center housing two of the leading companies in the industry and all anti-labor measures, were completely excluded. The strike blocker lasted for over two hours and at the peak of consumer traffic.
Against the backdrop of the "indignant consumers" attacks that have embraced all the neo-liberal arguments of capital and the media.
The public letter of the Association of Grand Merchants calling on the police to take measures for the "smooth" operation of the market is paving the way for repression. It was not, incidentally, the presence of a MAT cluster in Tsimiski from the morning. The Coordination has treated the incidents of consumer attacks with coolness as many of them are being made with the intent to intervene by the police. The role of the media, which as crowds was waiting for statements, consumers who could not pass through to the well-known propaganda at the expense of the struggle for labor interests and rights became again apparent.
However, the workers themselves support the Co-ordination mobilisations and these will continue on the following Sundays, which attempt to open stores starting in 2018 on Sunday of January, when the rebate period will be inaugurated.
