With a protest at the Embassy of Poland in Athens, members of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and its youth wing KNE expressed their solidarity to the persecuted cadres of the Communist Party of Poland (KPP) and the editors of “Brzask” newspaper.
With a banner reading “Hands Off The Communists Of Poland”, the KKE-KNE members gathered outside the Embassy, demanding the ending of the persecutions that the Polish authorities have unleashed against the country’s communists. KKE MEP Lefteris Nikolaou-Alavanos and Paschalis Kagiannis, member of the CC of KNE, met with the Embassy’s minister councillor Jolanta Wójcik-Niedzielska handing over to her a note of protest.
The KKE-KNE delegation denounced the unacceptable anti-communist campaign (which equates communism with nazism) and pointed out that the cadres of the CP of Poland were acquitted by the court on February 2019. The KKE members demanded the end of the persecutions against polish communists, so that the Communist Party will be able to participate freely, without obstacles and prohibitions, in the country’s political developments.

On March 3, a delegation of the New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (NKPJ) and the League of Communist Youth of Yugoslavia (SKOJ) held a protest at the Embassy of Poland in Belgrade regarding the persecutions against cadres and members the members of the editorial board of the party's newspaper „Brzask” and the Communist Party of Poland.
The New Communist Party of Yugoslavia (NKPJ) denounces the unacceptable persecution by the Polish authorities and the Polish government against the members of the editorial board of the party's newspaper „Brzask”.
Similar anti-communist persecution, convictions and bans against CPs have also been imposed in other EU member states, with the open support of the EU which has elevated anticommunism into being its official ideology, something that goes hand in hand with the intensification of the anti-people onslaught. Now there is enough evidence so that everyone can understand what the EU's declarations about the "values of freedom and democracy" really mean.
We demand here and now the end of all anti-communist persecution cease! We demand that no other types of measures such as banning of symbols or destruction of monument should be taken, such as those being promoted by the government of Poland. We will continue to resolutely express our solidarity with the Polish communists.
Hands off the communists!
