Once again the EU Parliament proves its role as a leading instrument of anti-communist distortion of history.
In a joint resolution signed by the political groups of the People's Party, the Social Democrats, the Liberals, the Greens and the Conservative Reformists, the EU tries - once again - to equate communism with fascism-nazism and legalize the unacceptable reactionary measures against the Communist Parties and their activity in a number of member-states.
Responding to this hideous effort, the group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) in the EU Parliament sent a letter to the Greek and Cypriot MEPs, calling them to denounce this despicable distortion of history. In the EU Parliament, both the KKE MEPs, Kostas Papadakis and Lefteris Nikolaou-Alavanos, denounced the resolution and the anti-communist propaganda.
In a statement published today in 902 portal, the KKE group in EU Parliament points out:
"With the votes of the People's Party, the Social Democrats, the Liberals, the Greens and the Conservative Reformists, the EU Parliament overwhelmingly passed the despicable joint anti-communist resolution under the title: "On the importance of the European remembrance for the future of Europe". It is proved that the European Union has proclaimed anti-communism into its official ideology. It leads, along with bourgeois government, the bans on the activity of Communist Parties and communist symbols, the persecutions against communists and the communist ideology. It guides the unacceptable effort to distort and rewrite history by using the unhistorical equation of communism with fascism.
Despite the negative correlation of forces, the KKE group in EU Parliament, with its interventions, fought against anti-communism and the distortion of history, revealed the aspirations behind the shameful resolution against the people and their struggle. It gave documented answers to the anti-communist campaign. The people will place the resolutions and the propaganda of the bourgeois political powers where they belong, in the dustbin of history."
On this issue, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following statement:
