KKE: Protest outside the Polish embassy in Athens against anticommunist persecutions

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/11/kke-protest-outside-polish-embassy-in.html
With a protest outside the Polish embassy yesterday in Athens, members of the Communist Party of Greece expressed their condemnation of the anticommunist persecutions that take place in Poland.
The delegation of the KKE, headed by the Member of the European Parliament Kostas Papadakis, delivered to the personnel of the embassy a statement in which the Party expresses its opposition to the persecutions.
It must be reminded that the court proceedings were due to start on Monday 27/11, with the judicial prosecution based on charges of propagating communist ideology in the „Brzask” newspaper and on the Communist Party of Poland’s website.
In its statement the KKE “condemns and denounces these anticommunist measures and persecutions, every kind of prohibitions against communists such as trials against them, prohibitions of communist symbols and of spreading communist ideas. This unacceptable persecution under no circumstances is lawful because it has the support of the reactionary EU or because similar (persecutions) are promoted in other countries”.
“The prohibitions”, writes the KKE statement, “the repression measures against the activity of the communists go hand-by-hand with the overall antiworkers measures and the attack to the rights and conquests of the working class”.
“They consist part of the known propaganda about “totalitarian regime” that promotes the provocative and unhistorical equation of communism with the monster of fascism, which is born and raised by the capitalist system”.
The KKE expresses its solidarity to the communists and the class-labour movement of Poland and demands the immediate withdrawal of all persecutions against the CP of Poland, its members and cadres.

With massive participation of people of every age, in a stadium filled with young communists, the KKE celebrated the 100 years since the October Socialist Revolution with a magnificent political and cultural event on Sunday in Athens. 
 
The event began with a speech by the General Secretary of the CC of the Party Dimitris Koutsoumbas and continued with a theatrical play dedicated to the 1917 October Revolution events. 
 
Thousands members, supporters and friends of the KKE and its youth wing, KNE, filled the Stadium of Peace and Friendship in Faliro, celebrating the epic revolution which inspired the people in all over the world and proved that capitalism is neither eternal nor undefeated. 
 
“The Great October proved that capitalism isn’t undefeated. That the people can build a higher organisation of society, without exploitation of man by man” said, among other things, General Secretary Koutsoumbas in his speech and underlined that “the era of socialist revolution is ahead. The vehement entrance of the working-peoples’ forces in the revolutionary struggle will, sooner or later, sweep away capitaliost barbarity, imperialist aggressiveness. The October illuminates the people’s struggles, socialism is a need of the times”.
 
The event was also attended representatives of communist and workers parties from the Mediterranean and the Middle East who had earlier participated in a regional meeting that was held in Athens.

NATO soldiers attacked and injured civilians in Crete

NATO soldiers attacked and injured civilians in Crete

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/11/nato-soldiers-attacked-and-injured.html

An outrageous incident took place in the city of Chania, in the Greek island of Crete, on November 17th. 

NATO soldiers, who were participating in a multinational military exercise, attacked civilians in the city center of Chania thus injuring one of them seriously. The victim was transfered to the local hospital. 
 
The incident took place on  the evening of Friday, 17 of November, just after the end of the rally for the 44th anniversary since the Athens Polytechnic Uprising. 

The attack from the side of the NATO soldiers, which is not the first one that takes place in the area, was unprovoked.
In a statement, the Chania Peace Committee strongly condemned the incident and said that the soldiers of NATO behave like they are in a “concquered city”. Similar statements of condemnation were issued by the local KKE and KNE Party Organisations.
 
“The attack which resulted to the serious injury of a fellow citizen is not an isolated incident. The increased attacks by NATO soldiers go hand by hand with the deeper involvement (of the country) in the plans of NATO’s alliance, the transformation of our city into a basement of peoples’ murderers” wrote a statement by the Chania Organisation of the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE).
 
It must noted that the naval base of Souda (used by the US-NATO forces) is 6 km to the east of the city of Chania.
 
The above unprovoked attacked by NATO soldiers against civilians was brought in the form of a question to the Greek Parliament by the KKE MP Manolis Syntihakis. MP Syntihakis submitted a written question to the Minister of Defense asking from the government to take measures for the punishment of the perpetrators, refering also to the popular demand for the closure of the foreign military bases.

KKE: Condemns the fascist attack on the Communist Party of Paraguay’s headquarters in Asunción

KKE: Condemns the fascist attack on the Communist Party of Paraguay’s headquarters in Asunción

 https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/11/kke-condemns-fascist-attack-on.html
In a message of solidarity towards the Communist Party of Paraguay (Partido Comunista Paraguayo), the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece states the following:
“The KKE decisively condemns the attack by a group of fascsist against the headquarters of the Communist Party of Paraguay in Asunción, the desecration of the offices’ entrance with vulgar anticommunist slogals and the destruction of a mural dedicated to the October Revolution.
This attack is not the first one; a similar event had occured in 2014, for which there was never a substantial action or response from the side of the state, despite the complaints of the PCP.
The government of Paraguay bears serious responsibilities because it leaves free space to the undisturbed activity of fascist gangs, while on the same time it escalates repression and persecutions against the workers-people’s struggles.
The KKE expresses its solidarity to the CP of Paraguay. It demands the clarification of the incident and the punishment of the perpetrators, the safeguarding of the free political and trade-unionist action of the communists and of the people’s movement in general.
The popular strata of Paraguay must think that the attacks on communists always consist a precursor to broader attack against the workers-peoples’ rights and freedoms. They must isolate such forces, express their solidarity and support towards the CP of Paraguay and strengthen their struggle for their rights.
