Angry Bangladeshi Farm Workers In Greece Shot At For Demanding Wages, Dozens Injured!

Bangladeshi farm workers in Greece shot at for demanding wages, dozens injured

PATRAS (GREECE): Two men have been arrested in Greece after foremen for strawberry growers allegedly shot and wounded 27 migrant labourers demanding long-overdue pay, police said on Thursday.

The migrants, mainly from Bangladesh, were hospitalized in the western port of Patras and other areas with gunshot wounds after allegedly being fired upon late on Wednesday by three foremen for the growers in the village of Manolada, one of the main areas of strawberry production in Greece, local police said.

A 57-year-old landowner was arrested as a "moral instigator" of the alleged shootings, as was another man for sheltering two of the presumed perpetrators overnight, police said.

The migrants had been working in local fields, some without being paid for the past six months, the police said. Around 200 of them went to demand their money on Wednesday when they were fired upon.

The government condemned the attack and anti-racist groups were planning a demonstration in the area later in the day.

Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou said the attack was "inhuman" and "outside Greek morality" and pledged an immediate response by the authorities.

Haire jibon. We bitch and complain so much - look at these people, trying to earn a living, they're out picking fruit in Greece of all places. No wages for 6 months, and to add insult to injury, shot for demanding back pay

I lived in Saudi Arabia, I have seen how south asian, south east asian workers are manupulated and the workers have no help, no one to go to. No labor laws, no unions, passports locked at companies, no wages paid, no option to change employment, no help from local police - a barbaric time, like we are 200 years back.

Now seeing almost the same situation in Greece.

You gotta understand THE MENTALITY of the Greeks towards immigrant workers, that they can SHOOT without much fear or concern on immigrant workers, if they ask for wages.

Sounds just like Arab, still in the dark ages.
