Mass demonstration in solidarity with Palestine in Athens
On Saturday 27 January, the trade unions and mass organizations in Athens once again held a large demonstration in solidarity with Palestine, condemning the crimes of the murderous state of Israel and denouncing the position of the Greek government that supports the Israeli occupation. Thousands of demonstrators gathered at the Parko Eleftherias (Freedom Park) and marched towards the Israeli embassy.
The GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas,took part in the demonstration organized by the trade unions and made the following statement to the media:
“We are here today in the Freedom Park to shout once again ‘Freedom for Palestine’! To demand that the massacre, the genocide of the Palestinian people by the murderous state of Israel, which is the occupier of the Palestinian territories, should stop immediately. That the Greek government should not send a Greek frigate to the Red Sea. There is serious danger of a conflagration of the war in the Middle East, and the flames that will be ignited will unfortunately engulf our country as well. They will also devour our people.”
