  • [01] KKE's 18th Congress

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) 18th Congress will begin on Wednesday with a much awaited speech by the party's General Secretary Aleka Papariga.

    Papariga, in many of her recent statements, termed the 18th congress as "one of the most important in the party's history" because KKE "has steadily increased its influence in Greek society and also because it will discuss and decide on a deeply debated, during the pre-congress party deliberations, text proposed by the central committee regarding the struggle for Socialism."

    The text also refers in depth to the Soviet socialism and analyses the reasons for its fall.

    Delegates from 90 communist, workers' parties and national liberation movements from 72 countries will attend the congress, the biggest number of delegations ever registered in the latest KKE congresess.

    The foreign delegations will also participate in an international solidarity rally on Tuesday in Athens and other events in the Attica region, Larissa, central Greece and Halkida.
