19th Congress of KKE

The referendum on the 5th of July and the stance of the KKE

As is well-known, the government of the “left” and in essence social-democratic SYRIZA party and of the “rightwing” nationalist party ANEL, in an attempt to manage the complete bankruptcy of its pre-election commitments, announced a referendum for the 5th July 2015, with the only question being whether the citizens agree or not with the proposed agreement, which had been tabled by the EU, IMF and ECB and concerns the continuation of the anti-people measures for a way out from the capitalist crisis, with Greece remaining in the euro.


The coalition government’s officials call on the people to say “no” and make it clear that this “no” in the referendum will be interpreted by the Greek government as approval for its own proposed agreement with the EU, IMF, ECB, which in its 47+8 pages also contains harsh antiworker-antipeople measures, with the aim of increasing the profitability of capital, capitalist “growth” and the country’s remaining in the euro. As the SYRIZA-ANEL government admits, which continues to extol the EU, “our common European home”, the “European achievement”, this proposal of theirs is 90% identical to the proposal of the EU, IMF, ECB and has very little relationship with what SYRIZA had promised before the elections.



El referéndum del 5 de julio y la postura del KKE

Como es bien sabido, el gobierno del partido "de izquierda" y en esencia socialdemócrata SYRIZA y del partido derecha nacionalista ANEL, en un esfuerzo de gestionar la quiebra total de sus compromisos electorales, anunció un referéndum para el 5 de julio de 2015, con la única pregunta si los ciudadanos están de acuerdo o no con la propuesta de acuerdo presentada por la UE, el FMI, el BCE y que se refiere a la continuación de las medidas antipopulares, por la salida de la crisis capitalista con Grecia en el euro.

Funcionarios del gobierno de coalición están llamando al pueblo a decir "NO" y dejan claro que este "NO" al referéndum será interpretado por el gobierno griego como una aprobación de su propia propuesta de acuerdo con la UE, el FMI, el BCE, que sus 47+8 páginas también contienen medidas antipopulares y antiobreras duras, con el fin de aumentar la rentabilidad del capital, el "crecimiento" capitalista y la permanencia del país en el euro.

El gobierno de SYRIZA-ANEL, que no ha dejado de ensalzar ni por un momento la UE, "nuestra casa europea común", el "acervo europeo", acepta que su propuesta es 90% idéntica con la propuesta de la UE, del FMI, del BCE y tiene muy poco que ver con lo que había prometido SYRIZA antes de las elecciones.


KKE: NO to the continuing bankruptcy of the people

The KKE held mass demonstrations on the 26th of June 2015 in the major cities of Greece against the new anti-people measures and agreements with the lenders, which are being prepared by the SYRIZA-ANEL government.

D. Koutsoumpas, the GS of the CC of the KKE, said, amongst other things, during his speech in Athens’ central square:

“The Greek people must say a big NO to the agreement, NO to their own continuing bankruptcy, NO to the parties of the EU one-way street and capitalist power. They must chart a course so that they can really take the reins of power.

The people must struggle alongside the KKE, they must impede the anti-people measures, on the streets, in the workplaces.

SYRIZA became the government by hijacking the workers’-people’s demands. It is now trying to deceive the people once again, distorting and interpreting the people’s votes in line with its interests.

Five months after the elections, the government is preparing to send the people the bill with the measures of the new agreement that are truly a noose around the necks of the families from the popular strata who have bled and will continue to bleed for the debt, for the EU, for the profitability of the monopolies, if they do not start a counterattack along the path of rupture and conflict with the EU and the monopolies.


KKE: NO a la quiebra continua del pueblo

El día 26 de junio de 2015, el KKE realizó en muchas ciudades de Grecia grandes movilizaciones contra las nuevas medidas y los acuerdos antipopulares con los prestamistas, que está preparando el gobierno de SYRIZA-ANEL.

Dimitris Koutsoumpas, el Secretario General del CC del KKE, en la plaza central de Atenas fuera del parlamento, dijo lo siguiente:

“El pueblo debe decir un gran NO al acuerdo, NO a su propia quiebra continua, NO a los partidos de la vía de sentido único de la UE y del poder capitalista. El pueblo debe trazar un camino para que tome las riendas del poder.


"We are the world"...

The Foreign Minister of the SYRIZA-ANEL government, N. Kotzias, in Antalya, Turkey, arm in arm with the rest of the NATO hawks sang "we are the world". "We are the world, we are the children..", as the lyrics of the song go.

Τhe Defense Minister of the SYRIZA-ANEL government , P. Kammenos, offered to hand over a Greek island in the Southeast Aegean to the USA, so that it could be transformed into a new airforce base.


The vulgar and underhand activity of SYRIZA on 9 May

While the KKE was honouring the Antifascist victory with a large event, certain organizations, with the participation of the governmental “left” party SYRIZA, were holding a festival for the decriminalization of so-called “soft” drugs in the centre of Athens.
