KKE comments on Tsipras' speech in the EU Parliament: "He emerges as a pillar of the rotten and reactionary system"

Commenting on Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' speech at the European Parliament, earlier today, the Press Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) points out:

"Mr. Tsipras went to the European Parliament to reassure that, despite any reservations by some people who though that he is a "leftist" and a "radical", he accomplished the antipeople work he undertook, even presenting this barbaric policy as a "victory of the Greek people" and as "EU's solidarity"! He also reaffirmed that Greece will honor the agreements and will not return to the past, which means that the people must forget everything they lost".

The KKE comments that Tsipras' speech was aiming, one more time, at the exoneration of the EU. 

"But the EU- writes the statement- wasn't and will never be a people's Europe and whoever cultivates this notion, even by collectively incriminating every voice against the EU, offer powerful weapons to reactionary forces in order to entrap the people's indignation and dissatisfaction". And the statement continues:

"The EU is an alliance of the bourgeois classes of Europe which, as the deadlocks of the system are increasing, the more she is plagued by contradictions, the more she becomes more aggressive towards the people, inside and outside Europe. Mr. Tsipras not only hides this truth but he emerges as a pillar of the rotten and reactionary system".
