KKE: Solidarity with Cuba - Imperialist plans will not pass!

In a statement concerning the new escalation of aggressive imperialist activities against Cuba, the International Relations Section of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) expresses its solidarity with the Cuban people, the government and the Communist Party of Cuba, pointing out out that “the new imperialist plans will not pass”.

More specifically the statement reads (here in Greek):  

KKE: Solidarity with Cuba! The plans of the imperialists will not pass! 

“The Communist Party of Greece condemns the new escalation of aggressive imperialist activities against Cuba and her people and more specifically the call for anti-communist and counterrevolutionary demonstrations on November 15th which aim at the overthrow of the Cuban government. These are actions orchestrated and funded by the USA, in cooperation with the anti-Cuban mafia operating on their territory, as well as with counterrevolutionary forces in Cuba. In the last days, the Cuban government has released a plethora of evidence about how the persons leading the counterrevolutionary actions are linked to and guided by US mechanisms in order to create conditions of destabilization and organize the escalation of imperialist attacks, even a coup in Cuba.

The KKE unequivocally condemns the provocative actions of the imperialists and any scenario for any kind of imperialist intervention in Cuba that aim to overthrow the achievements of the Cuban Revolution. 

The achievements of the Cuban people are becoming even more apparent today, in conditions of pandemic, when Cuba has developed 5 vaccines, has the highest vaccination coverage in the world and, at the same time the lowest mortality rates, while it organizes international medical aid to other people.

The KKE calls for the intensification of the struggle for the termination of the barbaric imperialist blockade of Cuba and the lifting of the 243 additional economic measures imposed by the Trump administration and maintained by the Biden government. It once again expresses its solidarity with the Cuban people, the government and the Communist Party of Cuba.

The people of Athens and other cities in Greece will be able to express their solidarity with Cuba  in practice during the events and marches commemorating the anniversary of the Polytechnic Uprising and demonstrating against US–NATO imperialism and its interventions and plans across the world."

It must be noted that demonstrations for the new imperialist plans against Cuba have been scheduled by the Greek-Cuban Association of Friendship and Solidarity outside the US diplomatic missions in Thessaloniki and Athens, on Saturday and Monday respectively.
