In a statement regarding the speech of Alexis Tsipras at the Central Committee of his party, SYRIZA, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) writes:
"The virtual reality that Mr Tsipras describes is collapsing in front of the people's daily routine, in poverty which persists, in the overdue payments which increase the threats of confiscations and auctions, in the labour jungle, in all these that were formed by the austerity memorandum laws of SYRIZA, New Democracy (ND) and PASOK alongside the permanent EU supervision. [This is a] proof that the development is not only unfair but, on the contrary, it is deeply class-based, anti-people and uncertain.

Kammenos' visit consists a follow-up of similar meetings held in New York 10 days ago by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Foreign Minister Kotzias.
The major characteristic of Kammenos' meetings in Washington DC is the effort of the Greek government to strengthen its role as the "flag-bearer" of US and NATO imperialism in eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans, seeking a deeper involvement in the extremely dangerous inter-imperialist competitions.

A new draft bill proposed by the Danish Ministry of Justice tries to put an end to the freedom of speech, especially on issues regarding the murderous, imperialist alliance of NATO.
According to Arbejderen news portal, the Justice Ministry prepares a law according to which even the sharing of any critical articles or views that "adversely affect the general perception of NATO” will be punishable! In order to obfuscate the threatening - towards free speech- nature of the new law, the draft legislation adds that the sharing of anti-NATO information/views will be punishable "if it is coming from a foreign intelligence service".
