19th Congress of KKE

Announcment of Bureau of CC of KNE, about the succesful Festival 100 years KKE-50 years KNE

The events of the Festival 100 years of the KKE- 50 years of KNE that took place all over the country, under the slogan “It has been a long road so far. A difficult road!... A sure road… Now this road is yours to follow!”, were very successful.

Our Festival this year honored the 100 years of life and action of the heroic KKE and the 50 years of its Youth, KNE. The Festival travelled all around the country and peaked on the 20th -21st- 22nd of September 2018, at “Tritsis” Park in Athens. This year the Festival had the greatest participation of the last years, as hundreds of thousands of young people as well as older people of our country took part. The KNE-Odigitis Festival lasts in time, always renewed, getting richer, more beautiful, bigger…


The Bureau of the Central Council of KNE greets the members and cadres of the Organisation who, with their excitement, their livelihood and their voluntary participation built our Festivals throughout the country, they worked day and night for the callout of the Festival to reach every young person. We greet the thousands of members and friends of KNE, who by distributing the support coupon for the Festival, by putting up posters, by inviting their friends, their families and coworkers to participate in the Festival, generally contributed in every way in the success of the Festival, multiplied our forces. The events of the Festival and the high participation of the youth in all those events gave life, in a way, to its slogan “now this road is yours”, until we reach its end, the society which will realise our dreams for education, work and life. Because the fight for socialism-communism is the youngest, the most vanguard and contemporary, the widest and greatest cause to fight for.

We warmly greet the representatives of the 40 Communist Youth Organisations and Anti-Imperialist Youth Organisations that participated in the main events of the Festival. Their presence in Greece and their support in our struggle give us the strength to continue our fight even more decisively. In the face of the 17-year-old Palestinian fighter, Ahed Tamimi, who participated in our Festival, we greet the fights of the Palestinian people for the end of the Israeli occupation, we greet all the peoples that struggle against imperialist aggression, we gain strength for the continuation and strengthening of the struggle against the system of exploitation.

We are thankful to the artists, all those that worked with us to make concerts and tributes that are among the best cultural events of the year.

Finally, we announce that part of the income of the Festival will be donated to the areas of Eastern Attika that were hit by the fires, with infrastructure that will be utilized to cover the needs of the young people living there.

This Festival will stay in our memory for a long time. The image of all corners of “Tritsis” Park filled with thousands of young people, with smiles of optimism and the countless red flags, will accompany us in our great efforts to strengthen the demands of the young people for the satisfaction of the contemporary needs in work, education and life, for their right in sports and culture. To win the life that the system is taking away from us, a life “worthy of our dreams and worthy of our people”. To strengthen the fights in which KNE holds the front line. To strengthen KNE itself and to strengthen as much as possible the KKE.
