KKE: The storming of Brazil's Congress by far-right groups shows the deep decay of capitalist societies

In a statement concerning the storming of government buildings by followers of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil's capital, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) points out (here in Greek):

“The methodical invasion of government buildings by far-right supporters of former Brazilian President Bolsonaro and their calls for a coup are directed against the interests of the Brazilian people who are solely responsible for determining the social and political developments in their country.

The repetition of the events that took place in the USA, with the invasion of the Capitol by Trump's followers, highlights the deep decay and decline of modern capitalist societies, the sharpening of global rivalries that also lead to a further reactionary reaction of the bourgeois state and its various mechanisms.

The KKE expresses its solidarity with the people of Brazil and stresses that the developments impose the growth of the independent workers-popular struggle based on the interests and needs of the people against all kinds of anti-popular policies and exploiters who feed such reactionary forces".
