Llamamos a la juventud que condene masivamente y decisivamente el ataque contra Siria por los EE.UU, Gran Bretaña y Francia con el apoyo y la tolerancia de los demás estados de la OTAN y la UE.



The Press Office of the CC of KNE issued the following announcement concerning the imperialist invasion of the US, Britain and France, against Syria:

We call upon the youth to condemn decisively and in massive way the attack in Syria, implemented by the USA, Britain and France, with the support and tolerance of the rest of the NATO and EU member-states.


Protest march of KNE to the US embassy in Athens

On Friday December 8 the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) carried out a mass rally and march through the central streets of the Greek capital which had as its final destination the US embassy.

In its statement the Press Office of the CC of KNE denounced the “decision of the USA to declare Jerusalem as the “capital of Israel” and to transfer its embassy there from Tel Aviv. The decision of the USA paves the way for a new imperialist crime. The new provocative act of the “devilishly good”-according to Tsipras- Trump adds fuel to the fire in order to “burn” the solution which entails the formation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, the solution for which the Palestinian people have been struggling and bleeding for so many years. The crimes of the murderous Israeli state against the Palestinian people have always been supported by the USA and EU.” KNE called on the youth to “condemn decisively the torture of an entire people, the violence carried out by the Israeli state with the thousands of political detainees, the construction of the wall of shame, with the settlements and the continuing occupation of Palestinian territory. To intensify the struggle to put an immediate end to the torments of the Palestinian people. To strengthen solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people for the creation of their own independent and sovereign state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.  To fight so that the Greek SYRIZA-ANEL government ceases every economic and military cooperation with the murderous state of Israel and all participation in the plans of US imperialism. So that our country is no longer entangled in the plans for the region which are dangerous for the peoples and youth.”
