Comrades Ilias Panagiotaros, Christos Pappas, Ilias Kasidiaris and Constantine Barbarousis arrived on the PEC HQ this morning and protested against the Harac (heavy tax) and the unrealistic settlement options the Company provides in case the civilians are unable to pay. At the same time, the PEC forgets to claim the huge debts several major political parties own to the company. The Harac is a tax added by the PEC, as part of the austerity measures voted by the Memorandum Parties. It was rendered unconstitutional, but the PEC kept requesting the payment of the tax. As if this wasn't enough, the PEC decided that 500.000 consumers should pay the Harac a second time, an outrageous provocation.
The dispatch of the MPs initially entered the HQ, demanding from the administration to reduce the settlement costs and increase the time certain disadvantaged groups are given in order to pay the bills, since those groups are the basic victims of the crisis. Afterwards, they searched for the Sales Manager... but since he was on vacation, we spoke with the next one in the command chain. The Golden Dawn spoke on behalf of 30.000 poor households and demanded that they get their electricity back. It is disgusting to see Greek workers living in poverty and on top of all that to have no electricity due to some petty debts, while major political parties and companies that owe tens of thousands have the alternative of ridiculously cheap settlements.
