19th Congress of KKE

Thousands of demonstrators denounced the imperialist plans of the USA-NATO-EU and the stance of the "left" government of SYRIZA



Demonstrations and protests were carried out on 15/11/2016 in Athens, Thessalonica and many other Greek cities on the occasion of the visit to Greece by the US President, B. Obama.

Thousands of demonstrators all over the country, with slogans that denounce imperialist war, Greece's involvement in the imperialist plans and the government's authoritarianism, participated in the dynamic demonstrations of the Greek Committee for International Detente and Peace (EEDYE) and the All-workers' Militant Front (PAME), self-employed associations, student unions, women's associations and organizations of the people's movement.

It should be noted that the government of the "left" and "radical" party SYRIZA and the Prime Minister himself, Alexis Tsipras, put on a show of adoration for the USA, presenting B. Obama to the Greek people as being a "saviour", who will contribute to the reduction of the public debt. In this direction, they banned all demonstrations in the centre of Athens for the duration of the visit.

The communists in the frontline to inform and mobilize the people

In the evening Thursday 5/5 in dozens of cities and neighbourhoods in Greece, as soon as the anti-people plans of the SYRIZA-ANEL government became known i.e. that it wanted to rush through the new anti-people measures through parliament this weekend, the communists went out onto the streets. With mass demonstrations, they informed the workers about the developments, as well as about the strike response of the labour movement, calling for mass participation in the strikes and strike rallies. The organizations of the KKE and KNE in Athens organized a mass demonstration in the city centre. The banner of the central Athens’ organizations of the KKE and KNE read “take back the law-guillotine”, while the banner of party organizations of the KKE in the universities and technical institutes said “The people must rise up. Take back the measures that crush the people.” The slogans that resounded at the demonstration were: “Workers forwards, now as one fist, tear down the memoranda and the bosses.” “They are destroying social security. We take to the streets. Take back the law-guillotine.” And “Forwards people, don’t bow your heads, go on the offensive and struggle alongside the KKE.”



PAME: Militant protest outside the Prime Minister’s Official Residence

A mass and militant surprise protest was organized outside the Prime Minister’s residence in the evening of Thursday 5/5 by the forces of PAME. Despite the draconian security measures, workers from dozens of unions rallied in PAME reached the Prime Minister’s Official Residence at 7 PM, unfurled a banner and made it clear to the government and employers that they would impede their plans.

For over two hours, dozens of PAME’s protesters with their slogans sent a message for a general workers’ uprising against the law-guillotine for the social security system and the new barbaric anti-people tax law.

Greeting message of WFDY to the strike mobilizations in Greece!

The World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) greets the strike mobilizations throughout Greece!

On May 7th  and 8th  the government of SYRIZA-ANEL in Greece aims, through fast-track procedures, to pass a guillotine-law  that eliminates what  remains  from one of the workers’ biggest conquests during the 20th century:  Social Security and  Healthcare, it crashes  the pensions and increases the  taxation of the people. There are additional charges onto the backs of the Greek people, that are added to the anti-popular measures taken the last years and sealed by the third memorandum signed between the Greek government, the EU, the ECB and the IMF during last summer.
