Intervention of the KKE at the European Parliament about 9th May
Babis Agourakis, MEP of the KKE highlighted the real meaning of 9th May, the Day of the Antifascist Victory of the people with his intervention during the plenary session of the European parliament. He stressed amongst others:
“The political establishment of the imperialist EU chose to declare the day of the Antifascist Victory of the Peoples as the “Europe Day” in order to erase from the historical memory of the people the lesson that they can beat their apparently unbeatable enemy when they want to. They did that in order to conceal the fact that the fascist-Nazi monster was bred by the capitalist exploitative system.
Today, the anticommunist hysteria, the falsification of history, the historically ignorant and vulgar attempt to equate communism with fascism constitute the official policy of the imperialist EU and the other bourgeois government in its member-states. The ideological and political intimidation is expressed with the rehabilitation of SS, with the restoration of Hitler symbols and the severe persecution of the communists in a series of EU member-states.
No falsification can erase the immense achievements of Stalingrad, Leningrad, of the Red Army of the partisans in the occupied countries, the incredible heroism of millions of working people that defeated fascism. No falsification, even the anticommunist propaganda can stop social development and the overthrow of the dictatorship of monopolies, the replacement of the rotten capitalist system by socialism, the bright future of humanity”.
