The communists in the frontline to inform and mobilize the people

In the evening Thursday 5/5 in dozens of cities and neighbourhoods in Greece, as soon as the anti-people plans of the SYRIZA-ANEL government became known i.e. that it wanted to rush through the new anti-people measures through parliament this weekend, the communists went out onto the streets. With mass demonstrations, they informed the workers about the developments, as well as about the strike response of the labour movement, calling for mass participation in the strikes and strike rallies. The organizations of the KKE and KNE in Athens organized a mass demonstration in the city centre. The banner of the central Athens’ organizations of the KKE and KNE read “take back the law-guillotine”, while the banner of party organizations of the KKE in the universities and technical institutes said “The people must rise up. Take back the measures that crush the people.” The slogans that resounded at the demonstration were: “Workers forwards, now as one fist, tear down the memoranda and the bosses.” “They are destroying social security. We take to the streets. Take back the law-guillotine.” And “Forwards people, don’t bow your heads, go on the offensive and struggle alongside the KKE.”

The World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) greets the strike mobilizations throughout Greece!

On May 7th  and 8th  the government of SYRIZA-ANEL in Greece aims, through fast-track procedures, to pass a guillotine-law  that eliminates what  remains  from one of the workers’ biggest conquests during the 20th century:  Social Security and  Healthcare, it crashes  the pensions and increases the  taxation of the people. There are additional charges onto the backs of the Greek people, that are added to the anti-popular measures taken the last years and sealed by the third memorandum signed between the Greek government, the EU, the ECB and the IMF during last summer.

Workers-Farmers, one voice and one fist

Thousands of farmers flooded the centre of Athens, outside the Parliament building, on the 12th and 13th of February. The farmers are waging a struggle of economic survival and for over 20 days and nights have set up roadblocks at around 100 points on the national highways. At the initiative of 68 roadblocks, a decision was taken to hold a national farmers' demonstration in Syntagma Square in Athens.

It was decided to hold a demonstration as the next step to escalate the struggle of the small and medium farmers, in a meeting held a week ago in Nikaia, Larisa, where it was also decided to maintain and reinforce the roadblocks, to intensify their local activity, to reject every attempt by the government to set up a dialogue in order to manipulate the farmers' struggle without taking back any of the measures that are driving the small and medium farmers off the land.

Tens of thousands of farmers reached Athens by coach and ferry to demonstrate, while those gathered enthusiastically welcomed a symbolic number of 18 tractors, which had set out a day earlier from the country's biggest roadblock on the national highway at Nikaia (Larisa).The tractors that arrived after a 14 hour journey were bedecked with flags depicting Marinos  Antypas (1872-1907), the socialist revolutionary who was murdered by the big landowners.
