From Egypt to Spain - and now to Greece

The news of the mass occupations in Athens, Thessaloniki, and in the main squares of other Greek cities,  is another inspiration for workers and youth across Europe.

Here in Britain, the Government wants to increase pension age from 60 to 68 - while youth cannot find jobs. It is just as the Spanish youth in  Madrid and Barcelona exclaimed - "Grandchildren on the dole, grandparents in work".

That's why teachers and civil servants will be on strike in Britain on June 30. That's why we must unite the struggles of workers and youth across Europe.
