Marathon march: we strengthen the anti-imperialist struggle
On the 14th of May 2017, the 37th Marathon Peace March was held, which began in the morning from the ancient tomb at Marathon and ended in the evening at the Ministry of National Defense. In its statement, the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace (EEDYE), which organizes the march each year, denounces the imperialist wars and interventions and demands the disengagement of Greece from them and the closure of the US-NATO military bases. Thanassis Pafilis, member of the National Council of EEDYE and General Secretary of the World Peace Council, spoke at the welcoming rally outside the Ministry.
The GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumpas, attended the welcoming rally in Athens for the 37th Marathon Peace March and made the following statement:
«We strengthen the anti-imperialist struggle, the struggle against war, against the interventions. We connect the daily struggle of our people against the memoranda, against the anti-people measures, the EU and the governments of capital, with the struggle against every imperialist war, every intervention. We struggle so that there are no border changes in our region and the world, so that all troops that are abroad return home, so that the bases of death are closed, so that NATO leaves Greece, so that we disengage from this predatory alliance, so that we do not participate in the dangerous adventures in our region, in the Aegean, the Balkans, the Black Sea, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East, North Africa. This year’s Marathon March can be the starting point for the strengthening of the anti-imperialist movement, the anti-imperialist struggle, against imperialist war, interventions, for peace and the people’s prosperity.”
