  • [01] KKE leader unveils initiative proposals at Int'l Meeting of Communist /Labour Parties

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga stressed the need for further cooperation and coordination among the communist and labour parties, in her opening address on Friday to a two-day International Meeting of Communist and Labour Parties on "Current trends in capitalism: economic, social and political impact - The communists' alternative", which is being held at the KKE headquarters in the Athens suburb of Perissos. She also put forward a series of proposals and regional and international initiatives for the communist and labour parties for the 2005-2006 period

    Papariga said that, today, the need for cordination and common action was increasing, as was the need for forging a common strategy on the common problems arising from the "modern-day imperialistic barbarity".

    The KKE leader said that "without abandoning our policy of revealing all the crimes being committed today, we must also expand our concern and common action with the issue of the communists' alternative, the prospect of socialism".

    Acknowledging the particularities expressed by each party separately, Papariga noted that this, however, did not refute the need for a uniform strategy, the need to project a well worked-out joint alternative, which she said could only be socialism.

    In a lengthy reference to the EU, Papariga said that it did not hesitate to directly or indirectly back political forces and movements that limited themselves to demanding harmless reforms and, on the bottom line, a different policy of management -- always within the capitalistic system -- provided they did not dispute the course of European capitalistic unification and its enlargement.

    Papariga also criticised the US on its policy in various areas of the world, such as the Broader Middle East policy which, she said, despite some individual differentiations, has been adopted by the G-8, NATO and the EU, with a new change of borders in the Balkans focussing on independence of Kosovo.

    Also in progress, she added, was an attack against Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, and the continuing criminal intervention by the Israeli government against the Palestinian people.

    In closing, Papariga unveiled a series of proposals and initiatives for the communist and labour parties for the 2005-2006 period.
