19th Congress of KKE

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.”
