Ken Loach about the Greek fighting cleaners: What a story!

Dear Friends,

I have heard of your situation from friends in England. What a story! Your strength and determination to fight for real jobs with fair wages is inspiring. We have many stories like yours here, as I’m sure you know. The constant pressure to privatise our public services is destroying the services and bringing poverty and insecurity to working people. The European Union and big corporations, supported by the politicians, are formidable enemies. But you too are formidable!

We need to support each other, as you say. Paul Laverty, who writes our film scripts, including Bread & Roses, will be in Athens at the end of October for a couple of days (25 – 27th Oct). He may have a busy schedule at the film festival then, but he hopes he can meet with you then.

In the meantime, everyone here sends their greetings, solidarity and warmest good wishes.

Yours sincerely,

Ken Loach
