32nd Anti-imperialist Camp of KNE:History is written with the people at the forefront and a strong KKE! We honour our history, we defend the natural wealth of the country


The 32nd Anti-imperialist Camp of the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) took place in Nestorio, Kastoria, on 13–16 July, with the participation of thousands of young people from all over the country. The area where the camp was held was the centre of the three-year epic of the Democratic Army of Greece (DSE, 1946–1949), led by the KKE. Through the activities of the camp, the young people learned about heroic aspects of this historical period and some of the greatest and most glorious chapters of the Democratic Army of Greece. The content of the camp was combined with the highlighting of the demands for the protection of this area of outstanding beauty and natural wealth from the ‘green’ monopolies that threaten to destroy it with their investments.

The programme of the Anti-Imperialist Camp included a number of political, cultural and sporting events, as well as concerts and feasts. For another year, the participation of young children in the specially organized camp of the children’s magazine “Red hot-air balloon”, which had its own special programme, was unique.

The highlight of the 32nd Anti-Imperialist Camp was the speech of the GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, which took place in the area that used to be the hospital of the DSE.

The ascent to the top of Gramos, the visit to the guerrilla hospital brings us closer to the history of the greatest class conflict of our people, and gives us inspiration and strength for our own struggles.
