The revolution of 1821 teaches that the “old” and “outdated” will be defeated thanks to the peoples’ struggle
In a statement on the 200th anniversary of the 1821 revolution, the GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, stressed the following:
“The Revolution of 1821 teaches us that “need always becomes history”; that the “old” and “outdated”, no matter how impregnable it may seem, will be defeated, thanks to the peoples’ struggle, when they decide to come to the forefront of history.
If the bourgeois liberation Revolution of 1821 gave birth to the Greek bourgeois state, the Socialist Revolution in the 21st century will give birth to the new workers' state, which will cease —definitively and irrevocably this time— to maintain the exploitation of man by man; it will meet the contemporary popular needs, the aspirations of the workers and our youth”.
It should be noted that the CC of the KKE issued a detailed Declaration on the specific anniversary, which can be found in Greek via the following link: https://www.kke.gr/article/Gia-ta-200-xronia-apo-tin-Epanastasi-toy-1821/
