KKE: Condemns the fascist attack on the Communist Party of Paraguay's headquarters in Asunción

In a message of solidarity towards the Communist Party of Paraguay (Partido Comunista Paraguayo), the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece states the following:

"The KKE decisively condemns the attack by a group of fascsist against the headquarters of the Communist Party of Paraguay in Asunción, the desecration of the offices' entrance with vulgar anticommunist slogals and the destruction of a mural dedicated to the October Revolution.

This attack is not the first one; a similar event had occured in 2014, for which there was never a substantial action or response from the side of the state, despite the complaints of the PCP. 

The government of Paraguay bears serious responsibilities because it leaves free space to the undisturbed activity of fascist gangs, while on the same time it escalates repression and persecutions against the workers-people's struggles.

The KKE expresses its solidarity to the CP of Paraguay. It demands the clarification of the incident and the punishment of the perpetrators, the safeguarding of the free political and trade-unionist action of the communists and of the people's movement in general.

The popular strata of Paraguay must think that the attacks on communists always consist a precursor to broader attack against the workers-peoples' rights and freedoms. They must isolate such forces, express their solidarity and support towards the CP of Paraguay and strengthen their struggle for their rights.
