HOMELESSNESS IN ATHENS
Athens, Greece
By Mais Istanbuli
17 Dec 2012

The deep economic crisis that grabbed the Greek society for over 4 years causing a huge impact on Greek Citizens.

The Greek government, with the IMF's help, officially states that the unemployment have reached 28 percent, which many people find unbelievable. A big increase in taxes, public transport fees, and salaries, along with the reduction of public spending in social welfare cost many of people loose their homes, their jobs, and in some cases their lives.

Before the crisis, most of the homeless population in Greece consisted of either alcoholics, illegal drug users, or former prisoners.

Now-a-days, the homeless population consists of people with diplomas and foreign language speakers, who in a very few months have seen their lives change forever.

NGOs such as the Medicines san Frontier officially stated that Greece looks more like a war zone than a peaceful country, due to the humanitarian crisis it's facing.

Immigrants and local citizens are overcrowding the NGOs' offices and clinics asking for the simplest medicine and food. There are public cases of cancer patients who are unable to get treatment due to the government's decision to impose a 25 Euro fee as hospital entry for all patients.

Hunger Strike at Telefonica (2 of 8)

By Francesc Xavier Subias Salvo
18 Nov 2012

Five employees of Telefónica (Movistar) are on the 27th day of a hunger strike to protest the dismissal of an employee, demanding reinstatement of the worker, but the company refuses to negotiate. The employee was fired from the company in 2010 after a herniated disc; the company justified his dismissal under the labor reform of Zapatero, that allows a worker to be let go after missing 20% of work hours within a four month period.

The first court stated that the worker appealed the dismissal last year so Andres Marcos Armenteros returned for a few months to Telefónica, but the company turned to the Superior Tribunal of Justice of Catalonia which determined that the worker should be compensated but his readmission is at the discretion of the company.

Marcos Andrés Armenteros con otros cuatro trabajadores de Telefónica (Movistar) están en huelga de hambre desde hace 27 dias en Barcelona en protesta por el despido de uno de ellos y que Telefónica echó por haber presentado varias bajas consecutivas en pocos meses durante año 2010. Los huelguistas reclaman la readmisión del trabajador, mientras que la empresa se niega a negociar.

Fue despedido de la empresa en 2010 tras varias bajas, por una hernia discal, La empresa justificó el despido acogiéndose a la reforma laboral de Zapatero, que permitía echar a un trabajador si faltaba más de un 20% del tiempo dentro de un período de cuatro meses consecutivos.

El primer tribunal al que recurrió el trabajador declaró el año pasado nulo el despido, por lo que Marcos Andrés Armenteros regresó durante unos meses a Telefónica, pero la empresa recurrió al TSJC ( Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Catalunya), que dictó improcedencia al considerar que la empresa aplicó injustamente la reforma laboral de manera retroactiva. Según esta última sentencia, el trabajador debía ser indemnizado, pero la readmisión queda a criterio de la compañía.
