International conference honoring the centennial of the October Revolution began in Leningrad

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/08/international-conference-honoring.html
The works of the international scientific conference honoring the 100 years since the 1917 October Revolution began on Friday in St.Petersburg (Leningrad), Russia. 
 
The subject of the conference, which is hosted by the Russian Communist Workers Party (RCWP), is “the Centennial of the Great October Socialist Revolution. Lessons and tasks for the contemporary communists”, while numerous communist and workers parties from all over the world are participating.
 
The Communist Party of Greece is represented by the member of its Political Bureau Giorgos Marinos and Elissaios Vagenas, member of the Central Commitee and head of the international relations section of the CC.
The opening speech of the conference was made by the First Secretary of the CC of the RCWP Viktor Tyulkin who, among other things, said that “the great achievements of the soviet power, of the USSR and the other socialist countries speak by themselves. The Great October Socialist Revolution was the greatest event of human history”
 
Cde Tyulkin pointed out that in the contemporary conditions “the major task of the communists, as Lenin was saying, is the preservation of the revolutionary character of their Party”. He also refered to the evaluation of the RCWP that the “right deviation, opportunism, continues being powerful today in the international communist movement and is developing, as the examples of a series of governmental parties which keep their communist names has shown”. 
 
In the upcoming posts, we will publish some interesting contributions made by the participating parties.

KKE: Solidarity with the Communists in Russia

The MEP of the KKE, Sotiris Zarianopoulos, denounced, with a question to the High Representative of the EU for Foreign and Defense of Policy F. Mogherini, the arrest of two cadres of the Russian Communist Workers’ Party, as well as the tabling of a law that outlaws meetings of MPs with workers and is aimed against the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.
The question of the MEP of the KKE was as follows:
“In recent decades, after the overthrow of socialism in the Soviet Union, an assault against the democratic and trade union rights of the workers is being observed in a number of countries in Eastern Europe, as well as in Russia. The climax of this assault is both the anti-communist bans in former socialist countries, which are members of the EU, as well as in Ukraine, and also the corresponding restrictions on the activity of the CPs.
New worrying incidents have been coming to light recently in Russia, like the arrest of two cadres of the Russian Communist Workers Party during the celebrations of the Anti-fascist Victory on May 9 2017, by the Russian authorities. In addition, the tabling of a draft law, which outlaws any meeting of elected MPs at all levels with workers, without the permission of the authorities, targets the Communist Party of the Russian federation (CPRF) and aims to impede the communication of the MPs of the CPRF with the workers.
 
Based on the above the High Representative is asked:
 
-What is the position of the Commission on the anti-democratic acts of the Russian authorities?
 
-What is its position on the serious issue as regards the persecution of and obstacles to the political activity of the CPs?”

Компартия Греции солидарна с коммунистами России.

Евродепутат от Компартии Греции Сотирис Зарианопулос осудил арест двух членов Российской коммунистической рабочей партии, а также внесение законопроекта, запрещающего встречи избранных депутатов с трудящимися и направленного против Коммунистической партии Российской Федерации, и обратился с вопросом к Верховному представителю по иностранным делам и политике безопасности Ф. Могерини.
Вопрос евродепутата от КПГ следующий:
«В последние десятилетия, после свержения социализма в Советском Союзе, в ряде стран Восточной Европы, а также в России наблюдается ущемление демократических и профсоюзных прав трудящихся. Кульминацией этого ущемления стал антикоммунистический запрет как в бывших социалистических странах, которые являются членами ЕС, так и на Украине, а также аналогичные ограничения деятельности компартий.
В России в последнее время появляются новые тревожные явления, такие как арест российскими властями двух партийных деятелей Российской коммунистической рабочей партии во время празднования Победы над фашизмом, 9 мая 2017 года, как и внесение законопроекта, который запрещает любые, не согласованные с властями, встречи избранных депутатов всех уровней с трудящимися и направлен против Коммунистической партии Российской Федерации (КПРФ), а также нацелен на создание препятствий в общении депутатов КПРФ с трудящимися.
На основании вышеизложенного, прошу Верховного представителя ответить:
– Как Комиссия относится к антидемократическим действиям российских властей?
– Как она относится к серьезному вопросу, касающемуся преследований и создания препятствий для политической деятельности компартий?»

The KKE denounces the persecution of communists (cadres of RCWP) by the Russian authorities

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/05/the-kke-denounces-persecution-of.html

Statement of the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) / inter.kke.gr.
 
The KKE denounces the arrest and sentencing of cadres of the Communist Workers’ Party of Russia (RCWP) by the Russian authorities, which was carried out during the demonstration of the 9th of May, day of the Anti-fascist Victory.
Specifically, as the RCWP and its youth- The Revolutionary Communist Youth League (Bolsheviks)-denounce Alexander Batov, member of the Secretariat of the CC of the RCWP was arrested in Moscow and P. Tipakov, Secretary of the RCWP’s local committee was arrested in Niszhny Novgorod.

As the RCWP denounces, the Russian authorities have carried out these actions because cadres of the RCWP were handing out leaflets and explaining to the workers the real meaning of the Anti-fascist Victory of the Soviet People, against the hijacking of this heroic epic by the current bourgeois authorities of Russia. The two comrades of the RCWP were sentenced to prison, A. Batov for 7 days and P. Tipakov for 10 days, on charges of “resisting the police” during their arrest.

The KKE denounces these anti-democratic acts and demands the immediate release of the cadres of the RCWP.
 
на русском
КПГ осуждает арест членов Российской коммунистической рабочей партии (РКРП) властями России, который проходил во время демонстраций 9 мая, в День Победы над фашизмом.
В частности, как сообщает РКРП и ее молодежная организация – Революционный коммунистический союз молодежи – РКСМ (б), в Москве был арестован Александр Батов, Секретарь ЦК РКРП, а в Нижнем Новгороде – первый секретарь Нижегородского обкома РОТ ФРОНТа и обкома РКРП-КПСС товарищ П. Типаков. РКРП  обвиняет российские власти в том, что они совершили эти действия, потому что члены РКРП раздавали листовки и разъясняли трудящимся истинный смысл Победы советского народа над фашизмом, выступали против использования этой героической эпопеи нынешними буржуазными властями России. Тов.Типаков  был осуждён на 10 суток административного ареста, а тов. Батов – на 7 суток по обвинению в «оказании сопротивления полиции» во время их задержания.
КПГ осуждает эти антидемократические действия и требует немедленного освобождения членов РКРП.
