  • [01] KKE leader: Recovery of people's losses is the party's red line

  • [01] KKE leader: Recovery of people's losses is the party's red line

    ANA/MPA---"The pre-election debate focuses on the negotiation of the debt and raises a double disorientation. The most important is the recovery of the huge losses of the last period, something that constitutes a red line for KKE, a criterion of every political proposal," Communist Party (KKE) secretary general Dimitris Koutsoumbas said in an interview with the Sunday edition of Kathimerini newspaper.

    He said that the overall discussion for the debt is carried out under the implicit or explicit presumption that the reason of the antisocial attack is the high debt, the troika and the memorandum that are linked with it, noting however that "throughout the EU, from Greece of the high debt to Germany of the high fiscal discipline, a relevant knot of antisocial measures is being untangled, regardless of the debt level."

    He added that the measures aim at shielding the competitiveness of the monopoly groups that has always been EU's strategic aim, while the measures are being coded based on the EU's directions from Maastricht to "Europe 2020."

    "The Greek bourgeois seeks a better negotiation for the debt in order additional funding capitals for the capitalist growth to be found and the State funding to the monopoly groups to be increased. The negotiation for the debt is negotiation within its grounds where oppositions and competitions exist," he underlined.

    Koutsoumbas also opined that New Democracy (ND) and SYRIZA essentially agree on the strategic points for the debt and obscuring the fact that any negotiation will comprise pledges so that lenders are secured.

    Finally, KKE leader said that the people should not be trapped in a false contradiction. Whoever becomes government, the people will be in the opposition and its real rival will promote with determination the policy of cheap working hands, with new salary reductions and new antisocial measures" said Koutsoumbas adding that the recovery of the losses will not be gifted to anyone but it will be gained by a revived working classes movement and a strong KKE in Parliament in order the people to take back everything they have lost during the crisis. This can only be achieved through a unilateral and total write-off of the debt, socialisation of the monopolies, and disengagement from the EU with the people in power."
