19th Congress of KKE

Motorcycle protest of KNE against the government bill that destroys the environment in favour of the big monopolies

The Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) held a motorcycle protest in the centre of Athens on Tuesday 5 May, against the despicable bill of the Ministry of Environment, which includes a number of destructive provisions for the natural resources of Greece.


When the protest reached the Parliament building, they put up a banner with the slogan “They destroy the Earth and our lives - Their system needs to be overthrown”. With slogans on the picket signs they were holding and the flyers they were throwing all over the centre of Athens, KNE members denounced this bill by declaring that the “green business” it promotes are sacrificing the environment and the people’s contemporary needs to the business interests and that the liberal ND government is walking the path of the social-democratic SYRIZA by degrading the lives of the people and the youth. They called upon every worker, student and school student of the country to fight for environmental protection because, according to one of the slogans, “the struggle for environmental protection is a struggle against capitalist barbarity, a struggle for socialism”.


Statement of Giorgos Marinos on the Environmental Law

Giorgos Marinos, member of the PB of the CC of the KKE and Member of Parliament, stress out in his statement on the Environmental Law:

“The government of ND, by exploiting the “opportunity” presented by the pandemic, continues voting any anti-people anti-labour measure that had remained out of the memoranda laws, while using fast-track procedures. The monstrosity Environmental Law was voted yesterday night by the Parliament’s Plenary Session. This Law is based on the EU directives and gives away mountains, lakes, Natura Protection areas of unique natural beauty, to the business groups so that they could find a way out for their stagnant capitals, on the occasion of the new capitalist crisis as well.


Workers’ May Day 2020 in Greece

Workers’ May Day was honored in Greece with hundreds of mass multi-faceted events, under pandemic conditions while maintaining protection measures (proper distancing, masks, etc. ) and in spite of the ND government decision to move May Day to mid-May.

The class unions organized strike events in all of the major cities of Greece and in the center of Athens as well as in many of its districts. On the eve of May Day, trade union leaders and KKE officials visited workplaces and spoke to the workers.


Joint Statement of Communist and Workers' Parties on the 150th anniversary of the birth of V.I. Lenin

We honor the great revolutionary leader V.I. Lenin, we are committed to continuing his work

[es] [ru] [ar]

The Communist and Workers' Parties, which co-sign this Joint Statement, would like also in this way to honor a great revolutionary and theorist of scientific socialism, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, as April 22 marks the 150th anniversary of his birth.

Especially in the current conditions, and while the pandemic of CoVID-19 is spreading, tragically demonstrating the great shortages of health systems in capitalist countries as well as the anti-social and parasitic nature of the capitalist system, in the face of the new crisis, the burdens of which will be again put on the workers' shoulders, the aggressive nature of capitalism and the escalation of imperialist competitions, which pose new dangers to peace and peoples, we feel an even greater need to refer to the historical physiognomy of V.I. Lenin. A personality that dedicated his life to the cause of the working class and other popular strata, to the struggle for the abolition of exploitation and the construction of the socialist society.


Совместное заявление коммунистических и рабочих партий по поводу 150-летия со дня рождения В.И. Ленина

Мы чтим память великого вождя революции В.И. Ленина, наш долг - продолжать его дело

Мы, коммунистические и рабочие партии, подписываясь под этим Совместным заявлением, хотим таким образом почтить память великого революционера и теоретика научного социализма Владимира Ильича Ленина, 150-летие со дня рождения которого отмечается 22 апреля.

Особенно в сегодняшних условиях, когда разрастается пандемия CoVID-19, которая демонстрирует огромные трагические недостатки системы здравоохранения в капиталистических странах, антисоциальную и паразитическую природу капиталистической системы перед лицом нового кризиса, бремя которого будет  снова взвалено на плечи  трудящихся, а также агрессивную природу империализма и обострение империалистических противоречий, создающих новую угрозу  для мира и народов, мы чувствуем ещё большую необходимость обратиться к исторической личности В.И. Ленина. К личности, посвятившей всю свою жизнь, без остатка, делу рабочего класса и других народных слоёв, борьбе за ликвидацию эксплуатации и построению социалистического общества.


Comunicado Conjunto de los Partidos Comunistas y Obreros sobre los 150 años del nacimiento de V.I. Lenin

¡Honramos al gran líder revolucionario V.I. Lenin, nos comprometemos a continuar su obra

Los partidos comunistas y obreros que firmamos este Comunicado Conjunto, queremos honrar de esta manera a un gran revolucionario y teórico del socialismo científico, Vladimir Ilich Lenin, ya que en el 22 de abril se celebran 150 años de su nacimiento.

En las condiciones actuales en particular, y mientras la pandemia del CoVID-19 se sigue extendiendo, demostrando de forma trágica las grandes deficiencias de los sistemas sanitarios en los países capitalistas así como la naturaleza antisocial y parasitaria del sistema capitalista, frente a la nueva crisis, cuyas cargas serán pagadas, nuevamente, por los trabajadores y las trabajadoras, y frente a la naturaleza agresiva del imperialismo y la escalada de las competencias imperialistas, que plantean nuevos peligros para la paz y los pueblos, sentimos aún más la necesidad de referirnos a la figura histórica de V.I. Lenin. Una personalidad que dedicó su vida a la causa de la clase obrera y de las demás capas populares en la lucha por la abolición de la explotación y la construcción de la sociedad socialista.


The action of KNE in Greece in the Covid-19 era


Since the very first moment the current difficult situation arose due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we, the members and friends of ΚΝΕ, were found on the frontline to support public health and the rights of youth, wherever they live, study and work in Greece. With the initiative and the militant activity of the forces of ΚΝΕ, since the first days of quarantine, we seek to break in practice the state of silence and submission the government wants to pass to workers, people and the youth.

We act with awareness we wage a difficult battle. An unprecedented battle for our generation. A demanding battle because it will last for long and its consequences will be far greater than what we have experienced until now. A complex battle, because the conflict, the ideological and political attack, especially on youth, is being strengthened and will be escalated in the short-term by the government and overall the bourgeoisie and their political parties.

Rising waves of refugees cannot be faced with repression but with disobedience to the Euro-Atlantic plans

The Press Office of the CC of KKE, by its successive statements during the past days, highlights among other things:

"Rising waves of refugees cannot be faced with repression but with disobedience to the Euro-Atlantic plans

Turkey's invasion in northern Syria with the support of NATO, the US and the EU, as well as the escalation of military confrontation with Syria and Russia, not only increase the risk of a more general war in the region, but also the waves of uprooted refugees.
