SWAN is pleased to share this short film on the terrible impact of austerity on social work and people's lives in Greece today. This situation is likely to play out in other parts of Europe in a similar fashion - we must resist austerity together to defend socially just social work and welfare:
"The following documentary film describes, by the social workers’ point of view, the situation in Greece.
Three social workers from different agencies -NGO, Semi-Public Agency and State Sector- describe the reality of the users and the one of the social services in the era of crisis, austerity and poverty that domain in Greece the last two years after the entrance of IMF…. It’s an attempt for spreading the “voice” of the “front-line” social workers from Greece but it is also an attempt of revealing the reality of the Greek people as well as the attempts and initiatives for resistance and solidarity"
