We are inspired by the 95-year history of the KKE, we draw valuable lessons, we continue the struggle for socialism.

The political-cultural event was very successfully completed in the packed Stadium of Peace and Friendship to honour the 95th anniversary of the KKE, on Sunday the 8th of December 2013. Thousands of people filled the stands and the central space of the stadium in order to celebrate its 95th anniversary together with the KKE and to honour the struggles and sacrifices of the communists and people, responding to the KKE’s call to mobilization which was addressed by the GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumpas.

“Lets finally dispense with the illusions, you are either with capital or with the workers” and “Capitalism is not the future, Socialism, the new world, is the future” were some of the slogans that were heard in the stadium, which had been dressed in red earlier that day in order to welcome the workers and the youth to the event of the Attica Party Organization of the KKE.

An important moment of the evening was the announcement that 60 Communist and Workers’ Parties from all over the world sent messages of greetings for the 95th anniversary of the KKE.

Anuncio de la KNE sobre el masacre en Gaza

¡La Juventud Comunista de Grecia condena las operaciones de asesinato de Israel en la Franja de Gaza contra el pueblo palestino! Llama a la juventud a mobilizarse contra el nuevo masacre, a expresar su solidaridad con el pueblo de Palestina, a impedir toda participación de Grecia en las nuevas intervenciones y guerras imperialistas que se preparan en la región.

El nuevo masacre en Israel, con el apoyo de los EE.UU y de la UE, en Gaza que ya ha sufrido mucho, trae al escenario otra vez la cara horrible del capitalismo. Tras 7 días de bombardéos, el número de los muertos excede los 100 y los heridos los 900. Entre los muertos, hay 27 niños.


Statement of KNE on the massacre in Gaza

The Communist Youth of Greece – KNE strongly condemns the murderous operations of Israel in Gaza Strip against the Palestinian people! We call upon the youth to mobilize against the new massacre, to express our solidarity to the people of Palestine, to prevent the participation of Greece with any means in the new imperialist interventions and wars that are being planned in the region!

The new massacre of the Israelis, with the support of the USA and the EU, in the suffering Gaza Strip, brings to the forefront the hideous face of capitalism. After 7 days of bombardments, the number of murdered people are over 100, while the wounded are more than 900. Amongst the dead are 27 children.


Resolution of the CC of the KKE- Conclusions from the elections on 6th May 2012 and 17th June 2012

The CC of the KKE met on 9th July 2012 to discuss the conclusions from the elections and the immediate tasks of the party. The CC tookinto account the discussion which had preceded in the organs and Party Base Organizations (PBOs), in the meetings with friends and supporters of the Party, the observations, suggestions and proposals, as well as the conclusions from the organs and base organizations of KNE. The conclusions of the CC will be tabled for discussion and approval by the PBOs and the organizations of KNE. The discussion in the party and KNE, as well as with friends and supporters, demonstrated that despite the losses and the negative correlation of forces, there exists stubbornness and determination regarding the intervention in the movement and the developments, the complex demands and needs of the people which are increasing, the strengthening of the organizations of the party and KNE. The CC is publishing the following assessments.



Article of Giorgos Marinos

member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the KKE



The KKE extends its warm thanks to the Communist Parties, communist men and women, as well as to a large number of other militants from all over the world who expressed their sincere solidarity with and support for our party, because they appreciated the tough class battles which it had waged over a long period of time, before and during the capitalist crisis.


Our party will continue to be worthy of their confidence and will escalate the struggle for the interests of the working class, the popular strata, for the overthrow of capitalist barbarity, for socialism. Because the goal for the abolition of the exploitation of man by man, the founding principle of the communist parties, demands it.
