Assassinations of communists must stop and those responsible must be punished
The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) unequivocally denounces the assassination of the comrades Oscar Rangel and Tonny Rojas, members of the CP and the CY of Venezuela. We express our condolences to their comrades, and particularly to their families and friends.
The two comrades, who were vanguard grass-roots fighters in the Táchira region, were assassinated because they defended the people’s interests and struggled against the activity of local and foreign reactionary forces that pillage the region and intimidate its people.
We demand that the Venezuelan government takes all necessary measures to punish all the perpetrators and instigators of the assassination of the two communists and to protect all grass-roots fighters from the activity of criminal groups.
We express our solidarity with the CP and the CY of Venezuela that struggle both against the local bourgeoisie and its instruments as well as the imperialist attacks by the US and its allies. We are well aware that the Venezuelan communists are not intimidated by such murderous practices and that they will honour the comrades’ memory by strengthening the struggle for the cause of the working class and the people.
