19th Congress of KKE

Organization and struggle of the students in every faculty and year-group

The 5th Nationwide Meeting of the Students’ Front of Struggle (MAS) was successfully held in Piraeus on Sunday 1/12. 500 representatives from 28 student unions, 240 struggle committees, dozens of year committees and elected members of student union committeesfrom all over Greece participated in it.

Students conveyed the rich activity of the previous period and the rich experience from the struggles carried out and set the tasks for the next period so that the militant response should correspond to the offensive unleashed by the government-EU-plutocracy against the studies and also against the future of the students.

Giorgos Skiadiotis, member of the Executive Secretariat of the All-workers’ Militant Front (PAME), addressed a message of greetings to the meeting, underlining the need for there to be more decisive steps in the next period regarding the struggle over immediate issues. Giorgos Skiadiotis stressed that the student movement can not develop without the parents, workers and labour and trade union movement.

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.”


On the Major Success of the 38th Festival KNE-Odigitis

The 38th Festival of KNE (Communist Youth of Greece) and Odigitis (the journal of KNE) has been successfully completed . The events were held all over Greece in the previous months and came to a climax at the central three-day event 13-15 September in the Tritsis Park in the mainly working class and popular western neighbourhoods ofAthens. The chief element this year was the mass participation of the youth, school students, university students, unemployed and workers. There was a higher participation of workers and unemployed of every age group.

The 38th Festival of KNE-Odigitis with the slogan “"Help him who has risen to revolt… you must prepare to take command now” was a decisive answer to the mechanisms of the system, which through slanders and other underhand methods have tried to place a wall between the KKE and KNE and the youth. It demonstrates that despite and in opposition to the climate of disappointment and blind indignation there are preconditions for the people’s emancipation to be expressed more dynamically and decisively, the organization and counterattack of the workers and youth against capital, the EU, and the parties which serve them, for the radical overthrow.


The workers in the “Greek Steelworks” plant destroyed the plans of the employer and continue fighting using other forms of struggle

Aspropyrgos, Steelworks plant, Monday 30/7, 9:05 a.m.


The Greek steelworkers enter the main gate of the plant to work following a 9-month strike (272 days). They conduct a rally, lift their fists and hold carnationsin their hands. They implement the decision of their 20th General Assembly, which took place on Saturday. The assembly stated that they will resume work and continue their struggle using other forms. Thus, they once again destroyed the plans of the industrialist Manesis, who made it clear that he wished the degradation of the strike and the dismantling of the trade union. In this he was fully supported by the government, which put in the industrialist’s service the state repression machine.


Solidarity with the strike of the steelworkers: mass demonstrations of PAME across the country

The brutal operation of the government which attempted to repress the struggle of the steelworkers met the response of the class oriented labour movement though the mass demonstrations of solidarity with the strike of the workers in Greek Steelworks which were organized by PAME. On Friday 20th July the government of ND-PASOK-DIMAR attempted to break the heroic 9-month strike of the steelworkers by means of a criminal attack of repression forces which was accompanied by the use of chemicals, beatings and arrests.

The response of the steelworkers was decisive: at the mass General Assembly of their union on Saturday 21st June they decided to continue the strike with 164 votes in favour and 5 against.


Statement of the Press Office of the CC of the KKE regarding the formation of the ND-PASOK-Democratic Left government

The new coalition government of ND-PASOK and the Democratic Left is not going to bring any relief to the popular strata which are suffering from the consequences of the capitalist crisis.

What the coalition government is presenting as a renegotiation of the unfavourable terms of the memoranda and the loan agreement is in fact a necessary readjustment imposed by the deepening of the crisis in Greece and the economically strongest countries in the Eurozone.This readjustment will be determined by the sharpening contradictions and the temporary agreements between the leading powers of the EU in relation to the way the crisis will be managed. Whatever their outcome is they will not put a brake on or cancel the bankruptcy and impoverishment of the people.
