Dear Prime Minister,
This morning, and all through today, a group of about 100 dockworkers from 2 small unions of marine employees are blocking the departure of several high speed ferries from leaving the
This is despite that fact that a court ruled that the strike was illegal. Hundreds of tourists, businesses and ordinary citizens were prevented from boarding ferries to get to the islands. Besides the inconvenience to ordinary citizens and the damage to Greek enterprises, the damage to Greek tourism and Greece's public image are devastating.
To add insult to the injury, television broadcasts showed policemen protecting the dockworkers by pushing away the hundreds of unhappy travelers who simply wanted to board and get on with their journey. Why are the police protecting an illegal strike against the legal rights of Greek citizens?
It’s your choice.
Please act soon. We are all waiting.
