    ANA-MPa/Communist Party (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga addressing on Saturday the demonstrators participating in PAME (Labour union affiliated to Communist party of Greece) rally for the Labour Day stressed "Whatever billions of euros they will give to the Greek state means nothing to the people, because the capital will continue to manipulate the workers and the rotten political system will continue to trod over and intimidate the labourers and to want workers without any dignity".
