19th Congress of KKE

KNE’s activities on the occasion of George Floyd’s murder

From the first moment, after the brutal murder of the unemployed Afro-American George Floyd by policemen in the USA, KNE denounced publicly this crime and informed the youth of Greece. KNE also organized militant mobilizations in front the US Embassy in Athens and in dozens other cities with central slogan “Capitalism means, I can’t breathe!” The organizations of KNE held discussions and events at spots and youth centers in Greece, with the above slogan as their main subject. KNE aims to meet again with thousands of young people, who see the burst of anger in the US and other countries, expressed with millions of participants in demonstrations.

KNE aims to answer the questions and to discuss the conclusions from these developments that promote the revolutionary struggle. KNE discusses for the barbaric nature of the capitalist system and the bourgeois state. This is shown in the country-symbol of capitalism and the bourgeois democracy where the working class, the poor people, the popular strata are left to die from the coronavirus, where people are murdered in cold blood and are condemned to unemployment.

Above all, we discuss for the overthrow of this barbaric system, which may seem powerful, nevertheless its very contradictions trigger people’s anger, and highlight that socialism is necessary and timely.
