Aleka Papariga fires at SYRIZA government: "You are the pillars of the rotten capitalist system"

Speaking at the Greek Parliament on Saturday, Communist Party's former General Secretary and current MP, Aleka Papariga unleashed an attack against the SYRIZA-ANEL government. "SYRIZA is the most recessive, conciliatory and degenerated thing appeared in the course of class-struggle" said Papariga in her speech during the discussion for the anti-people law on Social Security.

The former GS of KKE attacked Tsipras' government by saying: "you are the pillars of the rotten capitalist system". She stressed out that SYRIZA deceived the people with big lies, including false arguments such as that "the EU can become a union for the working people" or that, within the frame of capitalism, "another world is possible".

Aleka Papariga mentioned that SYRIZA has revealed it's true face and underlined that the government can only convince the people by using lies and deception.


Saturday was the second day of the discussion in the Parliament regarding the new governmental law on Social Security and taxation. The KKE MPs condemned the "law-guillotine" which destroys social security and retirement rights. KKE MP Christos Katsiotis said that the law consists a crime against the social character of peoples social security, pointing out that the government should be awarded with a "Nobel Prize in cheating".

For a second day, PAME and Labor Unions organised militant rallies in all major Greek cities against the new law. Strike demonstrations took place in Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras and other cities and towns. Talking to journalists, the General Secretary of KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas who participated in the Athens' demonstration said that the current fight of the working people against the barbaric policies of government-EU-IMF is "a struggle to the end, until the ultimate victory".
