The Youth Organizations who sign the present text, we express our solidarity with the struggle of the youth in Greece, for its' rights to education, to work, to life. With Communist Youth of Greece (KNE), which is in the front line of that struggle.

Resolución de solidaridad con la juventud griega y la KNE

Las Juventudes que firmamos el presente texto expresamos nuestra solidaridad con la lucha de la juventud en Grecia, que lucha por sus derechos en la educación, el trabajo y la vida. Con la KNE que está en primera fila de esta lucha.

Las nuevas medidas antipopulares, tal como el nuevo acuerdo-el 3er memorándum- que el gobierno de coalición de SYRIZA y ANEL ha firmado con la troika (UE, BCE, FMI), vienen a añadirse a todas las anteriores, a aplastar más los derechos de los jóvenes en el trabajo, la seguridad social y la educación.

No Surrender! The workers’-people’s struggle is the way out

Yesterday on the 15th of July, SYRIZA which had promised to bring “a law with one article” that would abolish the memoranda and anti-people measures, brought and passed through parliament with fast track procedures “a law with one article” with the first anti-people prerequisite measures for the third memorandum and the agreement with the imperialist organizations EU-ECB-IMF. At the same time,  the Vice President of the government, Y. Dragasakis, speaking on SYRIZA’s radio station, publicly thanked the US government and President Obama for their contribution to the finalization of the agreement.

In the roll call vote that the KKE had requested, 229 MPs voted “yes”, 64 “no” and 6 “present” out of the  total of 299 MPs that were in attendance.

The MPs of SYRIZA (111 out of 149), ANEL, ND, POTAMI and PASOK voted for this agreement and the draft bill. 32 MPs of SYRIZA voted no and 6 present. These differentiations do not have a substantial character. It is revealing about the extent of the deception that cadres of the so-called “Left Platform” stated very clearly that they would vote against the draft bill but that they support the government fully and the Prime Minister who tabled this bill!

On the result of the referendum: Hundreds of thousands of people supported the proposal of the KKE

On the 5th of July 2015, a referendum was held in Greece. The question posed was whether the citizens agreed or not with the proposed agreement, tabled by the EU-IMF-ECB, that will continue the anti-people measures worth 8 billion euros.

The governmental majority of SYRIZA-ANEL rejected the proposal of the KKE for the government’s draft agreement to also be placed before the judgment of the Greek people in the referendum together with the issue of abolishing all the anti-people laws that have been passed in recent years and the issue of disengaging from the EU. At the same time, the coalition government explained that the NO in the referendum is interpreted by the government as approval for its own proposed agreement with the EU-IMF-ECB, which inside 47+8 pages also includes harsh antiworker-antipeople measures, worth about 8 billion euros.

In these conditions, the KKE called on the workers to turn their backs on the false dilemma which was being posed in the referendum, using all appropriate means. The forces of the KKE outside the election centres handed out its own ballot paper to the voters which said:

  • NO TO THE PROPOSAL OF THE EU-IMF-ECB
  • NO TO THE PROPOSAL OF THE GOVERNMENT
  • DISENGAGEMENT FROM THE EU, WITH THE PEOPLE IN POWER

Of course, it was understood that this ballot paper would be counted as a spoiled ballot, but together with the blank ballot papers and the abstention it constitutes a political current that disputes the choices of the SYRIZA-ANEL government and also of the imperialist organizations, with whom the government is negotiating for the needs of capital in Greece.
