    1. Who cares and why is the Press trying to please us with this nonsense about “lifting our seamen’s back to work order” when our country is being ruled by the criminal TROIKA, Samaras and Venizlos Dictatorship..??!

    2. Now that summer is over and the tourists have gone home it’s okay to lift the back to work order. Great, how about resolving the back pay issues?
