Communist MEP Lefteris Nikolaou blasts the EU for attempting to re-write History

"The EU will not succeed to re-write people's history, no matter how much anti-communist ink will spill" was the message delivered by the MEP of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Lefteris Nikolaou-Alavanos in his intervention during EU Parliament's plenary in Strasbourg. 

The debate's subject was "Distortion of European history and remembrance of the Second World War". In his intervention, the KKE MEP pointed out the following (translation from the Greek text): 

"We understand your concern. Despite the anti-communist decisions of the European Parliament, the campaign of lies and history's distortion, the provocative equation of communism with the monster of fascism, the billions of euros spent for the youth's "discipling", you haven't succeed to re-write History. 

That's why you keep the anti-communist machine "in high speed". With the anti-communist resolution, with successive anti-communist discussions in every plenary. 

Anti-communism is in the EU's DNA and the people know, they see, the results of this policy. Emboldening fascist and other criminal groups, including the charged nazi Golden Dawn in Greece. Banning of Communist Parties in EU countries - in Poland, in the Baltic states - limiting of the communists' activity and their participation in elections, persecutions of militant people, destruction of historic monuments. 

You will not succeed! No matter how much you struggle to rename the Antifascist Victory day into "Europe Day", the truth will shine. 

Because this year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, when the people's struggle, led by the communists, the Soviet Union, the Red Army, crushed Hitler's fascism.

The future of the people is incompatible with capitalist exploitation, with poverty, war, uprooting! Socialism is the future!"
