Up to 150 people attended the Solidarity with Greek Strikers and Occupations event in Dalston, east London, on Friday of last week.
The meeting raised £1,600 for striking Greek workers. A further £200 was donated by the NUJ journalists’ union and £315 from a Unite the Resistance meeting in Bristol.
Films were shown of February’s general strikes against austerity in Greece, and music was played late.
Moisis Litsis from the occupied Eleftherotypia newspaper (see Greece: Workers’ struggle and solidarity) spoke, as did trade unionists from London and representatives from the Antarsya coalition of the Greek radical left.
