SYRIZA-ANEL plan on pensions a ‘casus belli’ for the people, KKE says
In strong criticism of proposed pension system reforms the government unveiled the previous day, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) on Tuesday denounced the plan as “a casus belli” for the entire Greek people.
“The SYRIZA-ANEL government’s plan, which completely dismantles the social nature of state insurance and continues the crime where New Democracy and PASOK left off, is a casus belli for the entire people.
No one is exempted from the slaughter,” it said, noting that workers and pensioners will be asked to pay dearly for the chronic looting of pension funds by big capital and the state, with their pension rights sacrificed to capitalist profits.
