List of KKE for the EP elections- hope and struggle for the future of the people!
The list of KKE for the EP elections was announced yesterday in the press conference of the GS of the CC of KKE, Aleka Papariga.
“The composition of the list of KKE reflects the social, age and sex composition of the Greek society as well as the cooperation and alliance policy of the Party. Active social and political forces that cooperate with KKE, young comrades and women, cadres who work in key positions of the trade union movement, the peasants’ movement, the movement of self-employed and craftsmen, the women’s movement, comrades who live in Germany and Denmark participate in the list, placing particular emphasis on the Greek people who live and work in Europe.
The daily life of the working people should be the criterion for the vote in the elections. By voting for KKE people can prove that they do not tolerate the deception, the stealing of the wealth they produce, the abolition of their rights, the deterioration of their life.
The participation in the elections and the vote of the list of KKE is particularly important. Abstention does not exert any pressure on the parties in power, ND and PASOK. In addition, the EU cannot be punished by voting for parties that support the EU and regard it as a “one-way road”.
