Greek government ‘fears social disorder and massive protests’

Greek prime minister Antonis Samaras may have assessed as positive all the reforms in Greece’s public sector, but, according to the country’s media, officials at the Maximos Mansion are deeply concerned about  potential social disorder in September.

According to daily newspaper Naftemporiki, messages coming from the country’s largest public worker union, ADEDY, are particularly negative concerning the government’s decisions to change all ministries and public institutions’ structures, as thousands of people will be made redundant with the mobility measure that has recently been adopted by the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare.

Samaras’s main concern has to do with his appearance in the inauguration of Thessaloniki’s International Fair on September 7, as all labour unions and syndicates are preparing themselves to organise massive protests.
