  • [01] SYN leader pays condolence call on Spanish Embassy

    12/03/2004 12:04:23

    Coalition of the Left and Progress (SYN) leader Nikos Constantopoulos, heading a three-member party delegation, on Friday paid a visit to the Spanish Embassy in Athens to express condolences on behalf of SYN over Thursday's multiple-bomb attack in Madrid that killed at least 190 people and injured more than 1,400.

    "We expressed our solidarity with the Spanish people and government over this terrifying and painful attack, which cost the lives of hundreds of unarmed, innocent victims," Constantopoulos said after the visit.

    "Such strikes create generalised destabilisation, harm democracy and have no justification, no alibi. It is blind violence against innocement people, working people, over which we express our abhorrence and grief," the SYN leader continued.

    "The peoples must fight with solidarity for a Europe of democracy, stability and solidarity," Constantopoulos said, so that such will not shed the blood of more peoples, disrupt our era and be used to amputate democracy and stability.
