19th Congress of KKE




COLLECTION OF SIGNATURES AGAINST THE US-GREECE AGREEMENT ON THE MILITARY BASES - BIG RALLY AT ATHENS ON OCTOBER 5th

After a great participation in the meeting of mass organisations, labour unions and students’ unions convened by the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace (EEDYE), a Struggle Committee was formed against the renewal of the dangerous US agreement with Greece on the military bases. One of its initial initiatives, which still continues, was collecting signatures against the new agreement.

Within the framework of the 45th KNE-Odigitis Festival, a total of seven stands for collecting signatures were set throughout the park by the Struggle Committee, from which numerous visitors passed wanting to sign the text of EEDYE.

Typical of the people’s interest is the fact that not only did some visitors sign the text, but they also asked to take it with them, so that they would collect signatures against the agreement by their colleagues at work.

Most people had already been informed about the issue and were very eager to sign. To those who had not heard about it, it got thoroughly explained and it was highlighted that every single signature against the US bases is of great importance.

The collection of signatures will continue until October 5th, when a big rally will be held at Syntagma Square at 12pm, which will be followed by a protest march towards the US Embassy.

 

Read the whole text of Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace (EEDYE):

NO TO THE RENEWAL OF THE US-GREECE AGREEMENT ON THE MILITARY BASES- DENOUNCEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT

We who sign this text express our biggest concerns about and strong condemnation of the US-Greek “Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement”, which the government seeks to renew, enhance and expand upgrading the Souda base and adding the bases of Larissa, Stefanovikeio and the port of Alexandroupoli, which the former government established.

It is a very dangerous development that entangles our country even deeper in the imperialist plans of the US-NATO-EU, the antagonisms and war plans in our region putting our people and youth at greater risks.

We strongly affirm our will to continue fighting against the BASES AND THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

WE DEMAND:

  • The non renewal, the denouncement of the US-Greek “Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement”
  • The closure of the Souda base and all the other US-NATO bases
  • The non participation of the Greek armed forces in imperialist missions abroad
  • The disengagement from NATO and the EU
