Commenting on yesterday's governmental show at Zappion Hall in Athens- where Prime Minister Tsipras wore a tie in order to “celebrate” the debt deal with the creditors- the General Secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece Dimitris Koutsoumbas said:
“The ridiculous fiestas of Tsipras and Kammenos can only be characterized as a provocation towards the people who continue to be challenged with old as well as new measures agreed by the SYRIZA-ANEL government. Mr Tsipras may wore and took off the tie, but the noose he put around our people's neck remains and tightens even more, with the “post-memorandum” austerity memorandum he has put on their shoulders […] and if there is something with which we agree with the Prime Minister is that he actually managed to do the dirty job, on behalf of the big capital, of the EU and NATO, thus being the “best student”!” said the KKE General Secretary.
“Our people has met many adventurists. Maybe Mr Tsipras surpassed any limit in his effort to deceive the people but this is not going to save him”, Dimitris Koutsoumbas pointed out.
The KKE General Secretary added: “The people have only one choice: Through their struggle to send to the rubble of history all these who tear apart their lives. To align themselves with the KKE”.
