  • [01] KKE leader addresses party event

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga, addressing a party event at a hotel in downtown Athens on Monday evening, said that the party was against the parties that serve capital and added that it was neither anti-New Democracy (ND - main opposition) nor anti-PASOK (ruling party)."

    Papariga was responding to criticism directed at her party regarding its opposition actions during the first days of the new government and in the wake of statements by Prime Minister George Papandreou in Parliament that KKE "is an extremist party" and that in a few days time it announced mobilisations that it had not done during the five and a half years that ND had been in power.

    The Secretary General added that her party was fully vindicated in its predictions as to the measures that the new government would be taking against working people.
