An off-the-agenda Parliament debate at the level of the political leaders on the issue "the phenomena of corruption and vested interests, their influence on the institutional and political system and how to deal with them" was held on the 10th of October 2016 on the plenum of parliament. The discussion took place at the proposal of the Prime Minister, A. Tsipras, as it is a "convenient" issue of discussion for the bourgeois parties ("left", "centre" and "right"), which seek to hide their convergence in terms of serving the anti-people strategy of capital by accusing each other over issues of management, corruption and "ethics".

On May 7th and 8th the government of SYRIZA-ANEL in Greece aims, through fast-track procedures, to pass a guillotine-law that eliminates what remains from one of the workers’ biggest conquests during the 20th century: Social Security and Healthcare, it crashes the pensions and increases the taxation of the people. There are additional charges onto the backs of the Greek people, that are added to the anti-popular measures taken the last years and sealed by the third memorandum signed between the Greek government, the EU, the ECB and the IMF during last summer.
The Greek workers are on strike. Hundreds of thousands of people participated today in the whole country on demonstrations against the politics of the Greek government. Greece's largest private and public sector unions GSEE and ADEDY have called to protest against the government's planned pension reforms. Also the communist orientated All Workers Militant Front (PAME) organized 76 strike demonstrations in the whole country. The biggest march has been in Athens, where the media counted more than 100.000 demonstrators.
