With KKE we strengthen the opposition of the people to imperialist designs, to NATO, to the EU
"We are here to declare our own "NO" to the Tsipra-Zaev agreement and the Euro-Atlantic anti-people designs. We are here to affirm our own "YES" to peace, to friendship, to the solidarity of the Greek people with neighboring peoples. What was prominently displayed on the Acropolis this morning, the eternal symbol of Greek and global culture, which made the round of the world, are the real "NO" and the real "YES"", stated the General Secretary of the KKE.
He also emphasized that "the SYRIZA government is preparing to vote on the Prespa Agreement, which was designed, implemented and finally signed with the FYROM government, by demand of NATO, the Americans and the EU, of big capital so they can do business in the Balkans."
Finally, he stressed that "We call on the workers, the unemployed, the people of the popular strata to strengthen their opposition to imperialist plans, NATO, the EU.
To struggle for the removal of American NATO bases from Greece, for the disengagement of our country from the imperialist organizations, so that no other people may enter this prison.
To take their place in the struggle with the Communists, in order to strengthen the solidarity and the common struggle of the peoples, to follow our own path, with our own power, workers' power. "
