Announcement of Employees Union of EYATH
Yesterday the Parliament disxussed the issue of privatization of EYATH. MPs were informed by TAIPED that the Government decided to allocate the water of Thessaloniki to private interests.
“Taking the floor, Mr. Athanasopoulos, explained that the sale of shares of EYATH SA does not constitute TAIPED’ s initiative but that of the government in accordance with the medium-term agreement,” renouncing thus any eventual legal responsibilities.
No need to repeat that EYATH is to be in reality given away to some private interests to make big money. A rough reduction of its profits to a depth of 30 years which is also the period of the concession, implies net profit of over 600,000,000 euros.>
Until October they estimate το finish with EYATH, they estimate to finish with the water of Thessaloniki, they count, they keep counting but do they count us in?
They underrate us and that’s their mistake. The people of Thessaloniki can stop the plunder.
Together, in coordination, we can stop them.
