Dimitris Koutsoumbas: The EU is only getting worse — A strong KKE, no other solution exists

A strong result for KKE in the European Parliament elections on June 9 will "be the best investment for the future, for all that we have to face and the battles we will fight together", underlined Dimitris Koutsoumbas, General Secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) during a speech in the Athens district of Kolonos on Sunday.

"The people are now well aware that there are no saviours... that no governmental stability, nor any governmental change, is going to change their life as long as there no real blows to the policy that sacrifices their rights for the profits of the few. This is the system and this is the EU of exploitation, wars and injustice," he said.

On the situation of Spanish-Argentine relations

Multipolaristas’ Dugin maneuvers through BRICS contradiction

By Charles Andrews

Aleksander Dugin, a propagandist for Putin’s great-Russian imperialism, has had to maneuver through one of the contradictions within the BRICS association – the unity and contention between China and Russia.

Supposedly a historian and philosopher, Dugin spews reactionary filth going back to feudal times.

Russian society is very special and needs a ‘father’ type of leader (such as a Tsar) who must also provide security assurances to the whole society.”

The Five Biggest Anti-Communist Lies

By Nikos Mottas

History, they say, is written by the victors, even the temporary ones. The dominance of counter-revolution and the overthrow of socialism in the Soviet Union and the Eastern European countries in the early 1990s was the trigger for the escalation of anti-communism at all levels. 

Through bourgeois historiography and the mainstream media, a series of fallacious theories have been developed, aimed at slandering the 20th century socialism and demonizing Marxist-Leninist ideology.

Operation Streaming: U.S new intelligence operation to distort the Cuban history

To modify historical facts on a whim, adapting them to a story that is harmful to the sovereignty of the peoples, is once again the bet of the U.S. government against the Cuban nation. That is what the denunciation that this newspaper amplified a few weeks ago is about, regarding an operation of the U.S. special services conceived -when not- to "change the regime" in Cuba.

Called Operation Streaming, which is not a very new term, it has among other purposes to rewrite the history of Cuba, to provide a sweetened description of pre-1959 capitalism and, of course, to present a whitewashed version of the neo-colony and the role of the U.S. in this history.

Lenin on Antisemitism

Speech of Vladimir I. Lenin recorded on gramophone in March 1919 as a response to the 1919 Anti-Jewish Progroms, Included in Lenin’s Collected Works, 4th English Edition, Progress Publishers, Moscow, 1972 Volume 29, pages 252-253:

"Anti-Semitism means spreading enmity towards the Jews. When the accursed tsarist monarchy was living its last days it tried to incite ignorant workers and peasants against the Jews. The tsarist police, in alliance with the landowners and the capitalists, organised pogroms against the Jews. The landowners and capitalists tried to divert the hatred of the workers and peasants who were tortured by want against the Jews.

KKE MEPs denounce European Parliament's shameful equation of communism with fascism

The MEPs of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) denounce the new anti-communist vileness of the European Parliament with the distribution of a pre-election advertisement for participation in the European elections of June 9, noting:


"In the short film, the EU propaganda mechanisms have managed to create an unhistorical mess by putting together in the same bag statements of people who lived through the Nazi atrocity with so-called 'testimonies' from the countries of socialism, reproducing the unhistorical equation of the fascist monster with communism. Indeed, this time the EU has even managed to outdo itself, since the spot is a monument to anti-communism with a touch of anti-fascism thrown in for good measure.

Ukraine's Zelensky regime continues the despicable policy of dismantling Soviet-era monuments

Another Soviet-era monument, which glorifies the friendship between Ukrainian and Russian people, is being dismantled on orders of the Kyiv city government in the latest stage of derussification (actually decommunization) promoted by the reactionary Zelensky government.
