Fifty Communist and Labor Parties Sign KKE Solidarity Campaign

KKEFifty communist, labor parties and organizations across the globe have joined an international campaign in solidarity with the Greek Communist Party (KKE) and its struggle, according to an announcement.

The campaign was launched last week by five leftist parties – the Algerian Party for Democracy and Socialism, the Brazilian Communist Party, the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain, the Workers’ Party of Hungary and the Turkish Communist Party.

The signed announcement noted that “the anti-popular agreement, the 3rd Memorandum, signed by the SYRIZA-ANEL government with the Troika, with the support of New Democracy and PASOK, continues the anti-popular measures of the previous governments and adds new burdens to Greece’s workers, unbearable taxation, abolition of labor and social security rights, reduction of wages and pensions, privatizations, thus further worsening the plight of working-class families.”

They also expressed support for KKE’s steadfast opposition of the Memoranda and the anti-popular agreement signed by the SYRIZA-ANEL coalition government with the EU-ECB-IMF Troika representing Greece’s creditors.

  1. Greece must be the only country in Europe with a Communist party at 5%, a leftist (chavist and Marxist) party at 36% and a socialist party at 5%.
    Terrible place to invest, unless something changes (e.g. a pro-European, right-wing or centre party being the majority).
    With the previous government (conservatives) reforms were actually working, at the end of 2014 the was a small growth in Greece (+0,8%).
    Today, with the leftists, Greece returned to negative growth (-2% / -5%).

  2. There was a pro-EU, anti-European, right-wing-center-left-whatever party in power but it got ousted by the people for stealing too much and not doing anything… Those unemployed for months/years don’t care about Samaras’ meaningless 0.8% surplus…

  3. How could there be growth if more than a quarter of the population is unemployed? shouldn’t believe all that you read…
