  • [01] KKE leader blasts EU

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga launched a scathing attack on the European Union, during an address to a meeting of 23 European communist and labor parties on Friday at the KKE headquarters in Perissos.

    Papariga cited opinion polls conducted in European countries to stress that the polls recorded the difficulty in promiting the EU Reform Treaty among the peoples, adding that the disagreements inside the EU were becoming more complex, the difficulties faced by the Treaty were growing, while discussions on the Treaty's prospects were intensifying.

    She said that the communist and labor parties of Europe had proven that they are capable of organising mass European-wide initiatives, stressing that being built upon that experience were the foundations for a more specific discussion on the prospect of a structured cooperation among those parties, in view of the 2009 Europarliament elections.

    Papariga said that the renaming of the Treaty from "Constitutional" to "Reform" aimed at circumventing the obligation of holding referenda, and the Treaty's rejection by the peoples, in a provocative disdain of the peoples will, while it also revealed the hypocrisy of the EU declarations regarding respect of "democracy and the will of the European citizens".

    She further charged that the Reform Treaty was inalienably linked with the Lisbon Strategy, with the demolition of the acquired social, social security and pension rights of the working class, and with full deregulation of the services market in the harsh capitalistic competition.
