19th Congress of KKE

45th KNE Festival-"Odigitis"

With the speech of Dimitris Koutsoumbas, GS of the CC of KKE, the events of the 45th KNE Festival and the "Odigitis" magazine culminated on Saturday 21/9. Below you can see a reportaz about the International City in Festival and some photographs of its massive events.







This year again, many were the visitors of the International City, while the delegations hosted at the Festival had a rich programme.

Once again, the International City drew the attention of many visitors at the 45th KNE-Odigitis Festival. This year, 36 Communist Youth and Anti-imperialist Organisations from around the world were hosted at the area of the International City. The stands of the Organisations were “co-located” with the central exhibition and were basically its continuation, since each one of them was portraying a significant moment in the class struggle of each country. In the International city, an event marking the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution took place on Thursday 19/9.

During their stay in Athens, the representatives of the Organisations met a delegation of the CC of the KKE headed by its SG, Dimitris Koutsoumpas. In addition, they attended with great interest the International Seminar that the KNE organised on the “100 years since the founding of the Communist International and the Young Communist International: The struggle for Socialism continues – The importance of proletarian internationalism and common struggle of the Communist Youth Organisations”. Lastly, they had the opportunity to walk the guerrilla paths in mount Parnitha learning about the activity of ELAS (Greek People's Liberation Army) and also DSE (Democratic Army of Greece) in the region.
