19th Congress of KKE

43rd Festival of KNE- Odigitis

Its journey starts  honouring the anniversary of the October Revolution

Summer is here and so is the period, when the journey begins for the biggest youth political and cultural event, the 43rd Festival of KNE-"Odigitis".

This year, the Festival focuses on the October Revolution and borrows its slogan from the verses of the poet of the Revolution, Vladimir Mayakovsky. "100 years since October that shook the world”, "The future will not come on its own…If we do not also take measures", is the slogan of this year's festival, which will be spread across the country and will peakwith the central three-day event in Athens, on September 21st, 22nd and 23rd, in the familiar area of the park "Ant. Tritsis " in Ilion.

Throughout the events of the 43rd Festival, KNE honors the anniversary of the Great Socialist Revolution, which constituted an epochal event, gazing however at the future , spreading the timeliness and necessity of the struggle against the brutal exploitative system of capitalism, the struggle for the construction of Socialism, the society that abolishes exploitation of man by man.


This message will echo in hundreds of events in neighbourhoods, villages, small towns and big cities and it will reach its peak in September, in bigger towns , before it culminates in the three-day events in Athens. In detail, big festivals have been scheduled in Thessaloniki (in the former military camp "Pavlou Mela") for the 14th, 15th and 16th of September-, but also in Patra (TEI), Heraklion, Larissa and Ioannina for the weekend of 15th and 16th of September.
