The closing statement of the outgoing CC of KNE which was presented in the 12th Congress by the Secretary of the CC of KNE, Nikos Ambatielos

Comrades,

The main issues concerning our political guidance, the action of KNE in the upcoming period of time, were pointed out through the intervention of comrade General Secretary of the CC of the Party.

The Central Council assesses that the discussion was good, vivid and combative. With the awareness of the steps we need to take towards all our main goals for the complete strengthening of KNE, as the revolutionary Youth of KKE.

An effort was made in order for us to see the experience from the action of the Organization in all parts of youth, to assess the possibilities of intervention, not with embellishment but with the enthusiasm that can bear a positive step of the Organization concerning the increase of the rallying of forces, the construction of a new ΒaseΟrganization or a Sectoral Organization, the successful outcome of a battle within the today’s total, negative correlation.

We can address the difficulties in our work, especially in the guiding issues, in an essential way in the following period. We all agree that the requirement to respond to is big, first of all for the new CC.

The influence of the today’s complex situation within the consciousnesses of the young generation, the objective difficulties, constitute a demanding battle for the members and cadres of KNE, that requires mood of high contribution, study and special effort of assimilation of the Resolutions of the Party and KNE, of the collective experience.

COMENTARIO DE LA OFICINA DE PRENSA DEL CC DE LA KNE CON MOTIVO DE LA REPRESION DE LAS MOVILIZACIONES DE ALUMNOS EN FRANCIA

Las imágenes de la ciudad francesa de Mantes-la-Jolie que muestran a alumnos detenidos, incluso a niños de 12 años, después de una movilización, y arrodillados o con su cara enfrentando la pared y con las manos en la cabeza, rodeados de policías demasiado armados, como si fueran prisioneros en un campo de concentración, causan enojo y escalofrío.

Estas imágenes son el espejo de la UE, que supuestamente está "regresando a sus valores democráticos" y aun se vuelva peor. Marcan el verdadero rostro de la democracia burguesa, donde la libertad de toda la gente para al punto dónde comienza la libertad de los explotadores.

Estas imágenes son aún más indignantes cuando recordamos que en septiembre de 2017, el presidente francés Macron, cuyos mandatos están siendo ejecutados por la policía francesa, dio discursos con Alexis Tsipras sobre la democracia al fondo de la colina Pnyx, mientras que SYRIZA todavía lo presenta como un adversario contra el neoliberalismo y la extrema derecha en Europa.

El sistema de explotación podrido y sus instituciones interestatales, como la UE, garantizan la libertad y la democracia solo a unos pocos, mientras que para los trabajadores y los jóvenes solo se reservan la pobreza, el desempleo y la represión.”

Comment of the Press Office of the CC of KNE on the occasion of the repression of the school student mobilizations in France

The images from the French city Mantes-la-Jolie that show arrested school students, even 12-year-olds, after a mobilization, being on their knees or facing the wall and with their hands on their heads, surrounded by fully armed policemen as if they are prisoners in a concentration camp, cause rage and repulsion.

These images are a reflection of the EU, which is allegedly “returning to the democratic values”, but it is getting worse and worse. They reflect the true face of the bourgeois democracy, in which the freedom of all the people stops where the freedom of the exploiters begins.

These images are doubly outrageous if we recall that in September 2017, the French president Macron, whose orders are the ones executed by the French police, made a speech along with Alexis Tsipras about democracy with the Pnyx in the background. Meanwhile SYRIZA is still advertising him as the countervailing force in Europe against neoliberalism and the far-right.

The rotten exploitative system and its interstate unions reassure freedom and democracy only for the few, while for the workers and the youth they reserve only poverty, unemployment and repression.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE PRESS OFFICE OF THE CC OF KNE CONCERNING THE STATEMENTS OF EDUCATION MINISTER GAVROGLOU AT THE RADIO STATION NEWS247 ON OCTOBER 24TH

The Press Office of the CC of KNE on October 24th published an announcement concerning the statements of the Education Minister of the SYRIZA- ANEL government K. Gavroglou about the mobilizations organized by students and school students.

Once again, the Education Minister questioned those who mobilized. Speaking to a Greek radio station, he characteristically stated: “What concerns us is where do these children draw their legality from, because these are not the decisions of General Assemblies, nor of the mass movement, or anything else”. And added that there are parties “which close their eyes to these situations” and that ““Rizospastis” for example, before schools began, announced that a front of school students was formed that will demand a, b, c”.

In this framework, the Press Office of the CC of KNE released an announcement- response, highlighting that “legality” is the right of the youth to demand its contemporary rights.

Below is the announcement:

ANUNCIO DE LA OFICINA DE PRENSA DEL CONSEJO CENTRAL DE LA KNE A OCASION DE LAS DECLARACIONES DE GAVROGLOU EN LA CADENA RADIOFONICA NEWS247 EL 24 DE OCTUBRE

La Oficina de Prensa del Consejo Central de la KNE emitió el 24 de octubre un anuncio sobre las declaraciones del Ministro de Educación L sr. Gavroglou, ante las movilizaciones organizadas por alumnos y estudiantes.

Una vez más, el Ministro de Educación ha planteado la cuestión de la legitimidad  de los que se movilizan. Hablando en una estación de la radio, dijo: “Lo que, por supuesto, nos preocupa es de dónde estos jóvenes obtienen su legitimidad, porque estas no son decisiones, ni de Asambleas Generales, ni de un movimiento de masas, ni de cualquier otra cosa.” Y añadió que hay partidos “que cierran sus ojos ante estas situaciones” y que “el Rizospastis por ejemplo antes de que comenzaran las clases en las escuelas, declaraba que se había formado un frente estudiantil para reclamar tal y tal cosa”.

En este contexto, la Oficina de Prensa del CC de la KNE emitió un anuncio-respuesta que afirma que la "legitimidad" es el derecho de los jóvenes a reclamar sus derechos actuales.

El anuncio es el siguiente:

STATEMENT OF THE PRESS OFFICE OF THE CC OF KNE FOR THE RECOGNITION OF JERUSALEM AS THE “CAPITAL” OF ISRAEL

The decision of the government of Trump to inaugurate its new embassy in Jerusalem, a move that essentially recognizes Jerusalem as the “capital” of Israel, is something that foreshadows new negative developments at the expense of the Palestinian people as well as the other peoples of the region.

It seems that in the attempt of the murderers of the peoples to lure the youth in order to support the dangerous plans, is involved even... the “sinful” Eurovision song contest. How else can it be explained that the Israeli winner of the contest basically mentioned Jerusalem as the “capital” of Israel? While at the same time, even the president of Israel, B. Netanyahu, immediately repeated the “line” of the winner, a “line” that insults the Palestinian people!!!

We call upon the youth of our country to continue the support towards the just struggle of the Palestinian people and youth, that while they are asserting their own homeland they face the state-oriented violence, the murders and the imprisonments on behalf of the state-killer of Israel. We call upon the youth to strengthen the struggle against the dangerous policy of the SYRIZA-ANEL government, that reinforces the political and military cooperation with the state of Israel, and to demand the immediate recognition of the Palestinian state on the basis of the resolution of the Greek Parliament of December of 2015. Overall, we call for the strengthening of the people’s and youth's struggle against the imperialist wars and the plans of US-NATO-EU in our region

Message of Congratulations of KNE towards EDON For the results of the elections of the EFEK (National Students Union of Cypriots) of Athens

Once more, we express our solidarity with the Cypriot people and youth, in their struggle to achieve a united homeland without foreign protectors and oppressors.

Have strength in your struggles!
