KKE: Comment on the situation of the refugees in Idomeni

Source: / Translation: In Defense of Communism.

In a comment regarding the ongoing developments in Idomeni, the Press Bureau of the CC of KKE stresses the following:

"The complete lack, for months now, of any kind of state responsibility in Idomeni - as a result of the refugees' entrapment agreement signed between the SYRIZA-ANEL government and the EU - is the basic factor which leads thousands of refugees to despair and desperation, thus leaving space for the unaccountable activity of various suspicious NGOs which, under the mantle of "solidarity", are playing games of domestic and foreign powers on the shoulders of refugees. On the same time, that (situation) becomes an allibi for violence and repression from the side of FYROM's government which is alligned with the aspirations of imperialist states and organisations like NATO and the EU.

Once more, KKE asks for immediate measures with state responsibility, for the creation of human-kind conditions and spaces of temporary residence for the thousands of refugees, by using all the existing capabilities which will operate only under the state responsibility and not of the various NGOs and other uncontrolled and so-called "solidarity groups". Organised redeployment of the refugees from the Piraeus port, in order to put an end to the unacceptable conditions of living".
