Solidarity with the just struggle of the Palestinian people
The event organized by the Attica Party Organization of the KKE in cooperation with the Palestinian Embassy at the "Alkyonis" cinema on the evening of Sunday 11/12 sent warm militant greetings to the Palestinian people and also sent a message calling for the intensification of internationalist solidarity with them.
This initiative, integrated in the framework of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people, denounced the continuous crimes committed by the Israeli state with its barbaric occupation of Palestine. An occupation that has been continuing for decades, with the support of the USA-NATO-EU and its member states, and also of the Greek governments.
The GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumpas, attended this event, while the Palestinian ambassador in Greece, Marwan Toubassi, and Themis Gionis, member of the CC of the KKE and of the Bureau of the Regional Committee of the Attica PO of the KKE, were the main speakers.
Those that attended, amongst them Palestinian that live and work in Greece, proudly enjoyed songs of resistance and struggle, both Greek and Palestinian, about their common struggle and relations of solidarity.
A special moment was when the Palestinian ambassador, with the loud applause of those present who rose to their feet, expressed his appreciation concerning the consistency of the KKE in its constant support of the struggle of the Palestinians and handed over a medal of honour to Dimitris Koutsoumpas.
M. Toubassi expressed the desire that 2017 would be the year that the Israeli occupation of Palestine ended, stressing that this would be a victory for the all the peoples of the world. He highlighted the consequences of the many years of occupation by the state of Israel and the barbaric situation experienced by the Palestinian people on a daily basis. He also referred to the heroic resistance-Intifada of the Palestinian people- with thousands of victims, and also to the changes under way due to the involvement of the imperialist powers, like the USA, in the region of the South East Mediterranean.
T.Gionis repeated the stable position of the party, at the side of the Palestinian people, for the creation of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital. He stressed that thus struggle must be intensified and connected to the struggles against the anti-people political line of the SYRIZA-ANEL government, which is deepening the political, military and economic cooperation of our country with the occupying power, Israel.
