“The solution for the people is neither to wait for the completion of the review and the new measures nor to wait for the elections that will bring another memorandum government. The solution will come through the clash with the monopolies and capitalism to prevent the new antipopular package and to claim all those we lost in the years of the crisis” stated Communist Party (KKE) leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas to the Saturday newspaper “Ependysi”.
Referring to the negotiations with the institutions he noted “our criticism to SYRIZA-Independent Greeks government as to the previous New Democracy-PASOK government never referred on the way they are bargaining but for whom they are negotiating. They are all negotiating over the way the groups’ profits will increase” said Koutsoumbas.
On Europe’s future, KKE leader supported that “KKE has said that EU is not a stable and coherent mechanism. Its coherence will be tried even more in the next period. Asked if the strident tones between Turkey and Greece over the Aegean can lead to an incident, Koutsoumbas said that these tones create a dangerous climate. They express the competition between the Greek and the Turkish bourgeois in a region that the knives have been unsheathed between powerful imperialistic countries on investments and over the transport of oil and natural gas.
