KKE condemns the provocative racist rant of neo-Nazi MEP Lagos

The EU Parliament Group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) condemns the racist rant of the Nazi MEP – former Golden Dawn MP – Yannis Lagos who ripped a copy of the Turkish flag during his speech in the EU Parliament

“This provocation is aimed against both the Greek and Turkish people and is linked to dirty plans that the nationalists always serve” writes a statement published on KKE’s 902 portal

The KKE EU Parliament Group adds that “the people can isolate the fascists who are emboldened by the prosecutor’s proposal in the trial of the criminal nazi gang of Golden Dawn. The people not only have nothing to divide them, but they can defend their common interests against the competitions of the bourgeois classes and the hate of nationalists”. 

It must be noted that Lagos is a former leading cadre and MP of the criminal, Nazi party of Golden Dawn. He, alongside other former and current Golden Dawn cadres and members, is under trial, indicted for numerous criminal actions, violent attacks against Greek and foreign workers, including the heinous murder of 34 years-old rapper Pavlos Fyssas in 2013. 

On December 18, 2019, the prosecutor of the Golden Dawn trial, in stark contrast to the overwhelming evidence that has been emerged through a lengthy legal process, proceeded to an outrageous and provocative proposal which acquits the leadership and cadres of the Nazi gang of the serious crimes they are accused of. The court's decision is still pending.
