We can't take it anymore!', 'We demand the abolition of the 12% penalty from pensions', 'Solving the problems of low pensioners' and others claimed their rights and fair demands, demanding that the Government solve the problems they have been facing for many years , without however being resolved, under the responsibility of the Government".

At the Conference the main speaker was the General Secretary of EKYSY Kostas Skarparis, who "informed the delegates about all the problems that exist and negatively affect the lives of pensioners and the efforts of the Organization to solve them". "He specifically stated that in the last 9 years the EKYSY held approximately 30 protest events, however the problems due to the relentless behavior of the Government continue to exist and create serious problems in the standard of living and the quality of life of the elderly while unfortunately there are not a few times when these problems are bothering and tormenting them" he added.
