Hands off the communists of Ukraine!

The KKE and KNE on 7th of March 2014 carried out a mass demonstration with placards outside the Ukrainian embassy in Athens, against the plans to ban the CP and the communist ideology in Ukraine.

A delegation of the KKE headed by Kostas Papadakis, member of the Secretariat and International Relations Section of the CC of the KKE, and Giorgos Toussas, member of the CC and MEP of the KKE, presented the following protest statement of the KKE to the representatives of the embassy:

“To the embassy of Ukraine in Athens

We follow with great indignation the developments that are taking place in Ukraine, where we see reactionary political forces, ideological descendants of Nazi, emerging to the political “surface” and ascending to the government with the assistance of the EU and the USA.

These forces have already proceeded to:

-          Destroy and vandalize the monuments of Lenin and other soviet and antifascist monuments;

-          Destroy the offices of the Communist Party of Ukraine in various regions of the country;

-          To publicly attack communists;

-          To adopt laws that are aimed against the Russian-speaking population and other minorities in the Ukraine;

-          To abolish the law that prohibits fascist propaganda;

-          To engineer the banning of the Communist Party of Ukraine and the communist ideology in the Ukraine tabling respective draft laws in parliament;

The Communist Party of Greece condemns the above-mentioned actions that are aimed against the political democratic rights and demands the immediate cessation of any attempt to ban the Communist Party and the communist ideology in Ukraine.

Hands off the communists of Ukraine!

Anticommunism will not succeed!”

Police attacks workers and unemployed in the centre of Athens

Workers and unemployed people who were demonstrating in the centre of Athens against unemployment (6/3/2014) faced the provocative attack of the police forces.

The protesters gathered in the centre of Athens and marched to the Ministry of Labour. They found the doors closed, even though a meeting had been scheduled, as the entire political leadership of the ministry was absent. The unions demanded that the minister must come in order to carry out the meeting. As this did not happen they announced that they would go to the Ministry of Finance to meet a representative of the government.

1.000 issues Odigitis. The combative voice the youth

Dear Comrades,

In this January the newspaper of the Communist Youth of Greece "Odigitis" reaches its 1000th issue. Due to that the Communist Party of Greece and KNE have dedicated this month of January 2013 to "Odigitis" organizing a series of activities that have to do with: the history of "Odigitis", the role of revolutionary press and, the role of mass media and electronic media in the capitalist society.

Following, we publish the announcement for the 1000th issue of Odigits:

Odigitis: the combative voice of the youth!

This year, KNE's monthly newspaper "Odigitis" reaches 1000 published issues.

"Odigitis", the organ of the Central Council of KNE, is a newspaper that exists, circulates and is distributed in order for the subversive policy of KKE to reach more and more young people.

"Odigitis" is the newspaper of KNE, with which KNE gets in touch with you. Through out all these years the pages of "Odigitis" never left out a single small or big struggle of the youth. "Odigitis" not only displayed these struggles but also took a stand, it supported them and contributed so that these struggles would acquire an orientation of rupture.  It revealed and clashed with the bourgeois ideology and with the compromising with the system of exploitation.


Forwards, unwaveringly, with militant revolutionary realism

94 years have passed since the beginning of the 1st founding Congress of the Socialist Worker’s Party of Greece (SEKE), which at its 3rd Extraordinary Congress in 1924 was renamed the Communist Party of Greece.......

Thousands of people took part in PAME’s rallies yesterday


PAME’s demonstration in Syntagma yesterday was impressive.
  • The government organized the state repression of the demonstration
  • The battle will continue in the workplaces with even more determination


At the time when inside the Parliament the bourgeois parties were calling on the people to submit in order to save the monopolies and were preparing to vote through the raft of barbaric anti-worker measures of the 3rd Memorandum, tens of thousands of strikers and demonstrators from working class and popular families made themselves heard all over the country: “Worker you must not accept this modern slavery, you can abolish all the laws and bosses.” And “No sacrifices for the plutocracy, the oligarchy must pay for the crisis.”


First day of the 48hr strike: A large rally of determined workers


The first strike rally of PAME on Tuesday morning in Athens and dozens of other cities was mass, dynamic and lively. An indication of the size of the demonstration in Athens was that it once again occupied the entire centre of the city. Thousands of workers, self-employed, tradesmen, youth and women demonstrated their opposition to the savage anti-people and anti-worker measures which are being pushed forward by the government, EU and Troika. The central slogan of the rally was “The measures must be overthrown, the people must have their say, either we will prevail or the monopolies will.”
