Mass rally of the KKE outside the Greek Parliament

No one should stand idly by and watch! No participation in NATO’s abattoir of war!

The GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, was the main speaker at the mass rally held by the KKE outside the Greek parliament on Monday 11 March.

In his speech, D. Koutsoumbas called on the people to break the omerta that the New Democracy government and all other parties are trying to impose on the involvement of our country in the imperialist wars raging in the region and in all the dangerous plans of the USA and NATO.

“The message that the New Democracy government and the warmongering EU will receive in the coming elections, should be much more resounding! The only ballot paper that can carry this anti-war message across Europe is that of the KKE”, he stressed.

He called broadly on the workers and youth to refuse to consent to Greece’s participation in the massacre of the Palestinian people. “No participation of the Armed Forces in the massacre in the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. The Hydra frigate and all Armed Forces on imperialist missions abroad must return home!”, he noted.

Commenting on French President Macron’s hawkish statement about sending European troops to Ukraine, he said:“This is where the insatiable thirst of the capitalists for new profits and the conflict between Russia and the Euro-Atlantic bloc, which is using Ukraine as a spearhead, is leading the peoples. Russia, in turn, acts as a bufferfor the Eurasian camp that is under formation and for China in itsrivalry with the USA for supremacy in the international capitalist system”.

The GS of the CC of the KKE referred in detail to the causes of both the of the Palestinian people by Israel and the causes of the imperialist war in Ukraine, stressing the responsibility of all imperialist powers. Concluding his speech, he highlighted that “Now we must intensify the struggle to prevent the government from sending arms and ammunition, which the Greek people havedearly paid forto be used for the defence of our country but end up on the military fronts of imperialist wars; for the closure of the US bases on Greek soil, namely in Souda, Alexandroupolis and elsewhere,which are turned intolaunching pads for the slaughter of other peoples and into potential targets for retaliation; for the disentanglement ofour country from imperialist war plans and the disengagement from imperialist unions, with the people masters in their own land. Now is the time to say a big NO to the transformation of our country into a spearhead for the imperialist murderous plans of the USA–NATO–EU. Now is the time to say a big YES to the right to live in peace and solidarity with other peoples”.

Dimitris Koutsoumbas stressed that “the rights of the workers and the people areincompatible with the profits of the few. The only dividing line iscapital, the EU and NATO versus the working people and their needs! The final solution lies in the overthrow of the world of exploitation and wars, in the society of true people’s prosperity, solidarity, friendship betweenthe peoples and peace, i.e. socialism!”

The mass rally ofthe KKE began with a speech by Amalia Papasotiriou, an air force officer.Some of the numerous young conscripts who have opposed the deployment of the frigate and the participation in imperialist missions also attended the rally.
