  • [01] Illegals, alleged traffickers arrested

    Two foreign nationals, 40 and 49, were arrested on Saturday by Thessaloniki police on charges of attempting to transport 17 illegal migrants that sneaked into the country from neighbouring Turkey via the Evros River frontier.

    All of the suspects were arrested and police are conducting an investigation.

    [02] Papariga's interview to ANA-MPA

    ‘e day after the elections will bring new measures against the working classes, according to Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga, who gave an interview to the ANA-MPA on Saturday.

    Papariga charged that both of Greece 's mainstream parties merely described the country's problems without delving into the reasons for these problems.

    She also cited opinion polls giving unprecedented voters' preference to the hereunto unknown "Ecologists - Greens" party, saying a vote for the latter neither provides answers to the ecology issue nor to anti-social policies.

    The KKE leader underlined that the only positive progress for the working classes are those that will mark KKE's increased strength, adding that on the illegal migrants' issue "the problem is international and cannot be solved within a country‚¶"

    "In this ballot a clear condemnation against EU can be expressed. Whoever wants to protest and express his opposition to this Union of big capital and anti-social measures, of militarism and war may do so by casting a vote for KKE," she added, in repeating her communist party's leitmotif against the European Union.

    On illegal migrants and security issues, Papariga said that "simplified explanations cannot give answers but obscure consciences and give way to racism. They prepare the way to intensify the reactionary measures; surveillance mechanisms in our country and in EU."
