  • [01] PM Tsipras stresses the need for a new vision of humanitarian action

    "A new vision of humanitarian action is necessary," Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras posted on his personal Twitter account on Monday during the UN World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul.

    In another Tweet, he said "Greece is facing two crises at the same time, safeguarding the principles of humanism and solidarity."

    [02] Thessaloniki Port employees protest against privatisation

    The employees of the Thessaloniki Port Authority (OLTH) protested on Monday against the arrival of executives from APM Terminals, owned by Maersk group.

    APM Terminals operates a Global Terminal Network of 72 operating port and terminal facilities and has expressed its interest in the sale of OLTH.

    Meanwhile, the employees have announced 48-hour repeated strikes as of Thursday, May 26.

    [03] SYRIZA MP Katrivanou resigns

    SYRIZA MP Vasiliki Katrivanou announced in a letter posted on her personal Facebook account that she would resign. She called the decision very difficult but necessary because 'from September until today the existence of a continuous supervision is being confirmed something that leaves very little room for exercising policy" however, she said, "I can't think of another credible alternative and for this reason I resign."

    Katrivanou voted in favour of the government's omnibus bill in principle in parliament on Sunday but against the articles on the contingency mechanism and the new privatisation fund, causing frustration to the government and to SYRIZA party.
