A meeting between representatives of 30 Communist and Anti-imperialist youth organisations which participate at the 43rd KNE-Odigitis Festival and the Secretary General of the CC of the KKE Dimitris Koutsoumbas was held earlier today at the Party's headquarters in Perissos, Athens.
In his welcome speech, D.Koutsoumbas said:
"We welcome in the headquarters of the CC of the KKE the 30 Communist and Anti-imperialist youth organisations from all over the world which are in Greece for the 43rd KNE-Odigitis Festival.
In an era of strengthening of the imperialist interventions, antagonisms and contradictions, which take place always at the cost of the peoples and the youth of the countries, during a period when the economic capitalist crises, poverty, unemployment, (displacement) of refugees are strengthening, what is- more than ever- needed is the invigoration of international solidarity, the common struggle of the people and the youth, the coordination of the action, so that we can encounter capitalist barbarity, to pave the way for the socialist future of our countries.
This task, within the frame of the KNE Festival, we are trying to implement, by exchanging opinions, thoughts, discussing and organizing our common struggle".
