19th Congress of KKE




We are not afraid and we will never forget! We struggle against fascism and the system that gives rise to it!

Thousands of young people, school students, university students, and workers participated in the rallies and concerts organized by university students’ associations, students’ councils and trade unions in Athens, Thessaloniki, and many other cities. One year after the conviction of the criminal organization Golden Dawn and a few days after the murderous attacks in Thessaloniki and elsewhere, thousands of young people and workers across the country sent a strong message: The struggle against fascism is continuing and will continue as long as there is the decayed system that gives rise to it!

The school-student struggles for essential health protection measures and the activity of KNE

The new school year for the school-students in Secondary Education, has begun in a militant way all over the country with the school-students taking over more than 700 schools, daily protests outside the premises of Municipalities and Regional Headquarters, as well as the great mobilisations of thousands of school-students in the centre of Athens, Thessaloniki and other cities all over Greece.

 

The New Democracy (ND) government, instead of utilising the extra time that was gained, thanks to the responsible stance of the people and the youth during the previous period, extra time that could be used to fortify the public healthcare system and to prepare the opening of schools and universities with all the necessary health protection measures for the school-students and students, it implemented everything the big businessmen of the tourism and transport sectors demanded, exposing our people to a second wave of COVID-19 cases, while at the same time it provocatively increases the military expenses for aircrafts that will serve the NATO plans.

STATEMENT - CALL OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF GREECE


[ar]

1. The Central Committee of the KKE met on Monday, September 7, 2020, and examined the tasks and actions of the Party and the KNE under these complex and difficult conditions for the people, formed by the course of international and national developments. These developments are defined by:

  • The further escalation of the intra-imperialist competitions in the Eastern Mediterranean region, which include the contradictions of the bourgeois classes of Greece and Turkey and the escalation of Turkish aggression.
  • The course and outbreak of the pandemic in our country and internationally, the tragic situation in public health systems, the consequences of the pandemic on the life and the rights of the working class and the popular strata, as a result of anti-popular policies and measures.
  • The outbreak, the evolution and the depth of the economic crisis, whose basic cause is not the pandemic, as claimed by bourgeois governments and international organizations. Serious problems of capital over-accumulation pre-existed in world capitalist economy, which mathematically led to a new crisis that was accelerated by the pandemic.
  • The intensification of authoritarianism, repression, and anti-communism, as manifested recently in the voting of the new law for the restriction and ban of demonstrations by the ND government.

In this struggle the new brochure of the Committee of the CC of KNE Against All Drugs, under the title “Look for the real ”substance”. Say no to all drugs” is one more weapon in our hands. You can find it on our website, translated in English and edited by the International Relations Committee of the CC of KNE.
