  • [01] KKE leader addresses youth

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga addressed the 35th KNE-ODIGITIS festival organised by KKE's youth group in Piraeus on Saturday night, where she stressed the need to resist the dictates of the establishment as represented by the two main parties.

    "Submission and compliance, or counter-attack and opposition? This is the real political and ethical question that stands before us in our daily struggle against the rising problems, at ballot boxes today and tomorrow," Papariga said.

    According to KKE's leader, all mechanisms and organisations of the bourgeois political system were geared toward preventing the working classes and young people from considering this question. She accused ruling New Democracy and main opposition PASOK, as well as the newly-emergent Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) of beginning a "brainwashing campaign" for the supposed cleansing of political life that was actually a front for a imposing a system of complete and totalitarian control on the activities of political parties, even those that were openly supportive of the system.

    "The collateral goal is to prevent through laws and Maniadakis-type orders the activity of any radical social and political forces, especially KKE," she claimed.

    Papariga went on to say that the main source of funding for KKE were the contributions paid by party members and the contributions of friends and supporters of the party, including workers, ordinary citizens and bodies "that understand the need for KKE's existence, for its action, independent of whether they agree with us on everything."

    "Our activities to acquire financial means must and are politically independent of business, we do not subjugate our policy to economic gain," she stressed.
