Greeks hold protest against soaring cost of living

TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (MNA) – Workers, civil servants and students staged protests Saturday in Athens to draw attention to the soaring cost of living.

Demonstrators gathered in front of the parliament building, responding to the call of The All-Workers Militant Front (PAME), a trade union affiliated with the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), to protest.

They demanded an increase in wages in the demonstration which was held during the 2023 budget negotiations in a parliament plenary, the Turkish Anadolu Agency reported.

The budget is expected to be submitted to parliament later Saturday for approval.

Europe has seen similar protests as a growing cost of living crisis and rising energy prices since the Russian-Ukraine war has led to strikes in France, the UK and Spain.
