Background: SYNOPSIS: Since yesterday morning the 1500 workers decided to close the bases after all the illegal actions of the American employer. The American Command are trying to provoke the Greek Personnel and to some extent the Greek people. They consider the bases as their own land inside our own country. We believe that all the above actions of the American Command are a part of a general plan of political pressures against the government of our country. The 1500 Greek workers are determined to protect and defend their legal and human rights, their reputation and especially their national dignity, which has been offended and humiliated by the Americans.
