Can't Pay Won't Pay Solidarity with the People of Greece - The Movie

Can't Pay Won't Pay! - Solidarity with the People of Greece!

Responding to a call for international solidarity, the Coalition of Resistance and the People's Charter brought together a delegation of trade unionists and campaigners to visit Athens in March 2012. 

This film documents their trip. With interviews with striking steel workers, an anti-austerity MP, a homeless shelter psychologist, an archaeologist and a hunger striking Mayor.

It is a whistle stop trip around the devastating economic crisis in Greece. It also gives an inspirational insight into the ways in which people are struggling to reclaim their lives and serves as a stark warning to all those in Europe who now face similar threats of Austerity.

This film saw Tansy E. Hoskins & Claire Solomon Join the Fourman Films Team.
