The Greek Orthodox Church and the Judiciary have been involved in major corruption scandals, involving embezzlement, drug running and bribing of judges to fix trials. Two “pillars” of the Greek state have thus been exposed in the eyes of the masses, something which will have profound consequences in the coming years of class struggle. We publish an introduction by Fred Weston and the Editorial statement of the new Greek Marxist journal, Marxistiki Phoni, on these developments.
Further to our previous articles, we publish an Editorial Statement of the Greek Marxist Tendency, Marxistiki Foni,
on the meaning of the severe crisis that has shaken the Greek Orthodox
Church and how this relates to the future class battles that are being
prepared in Greece.
On May 11th a massive general strike took place in Greece. The trade
union leaders were forced to call the strike as the anger of the
workers mounted. The ND government has come out with an all-out attack
on the working class and the workers have responded. Report from Marxistiki Foni.
After playing for time before last year’s Olympic games, the Greek
ruling class is preparing an all-out attack on the workers of Greece.
The Greek economy is beginning to slow down and this is adding to the
problems of the ruling class. A recent wave of strikes and general
strikes indicates that Greece is clearly moving towards a period of
renewed class conflict.
