Members of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and the Communist Youth (KNE) set up a blockade on a train carrying US-NATO military equipment and combat vehicles at the exist of the port of Alexandroupolis.

Shouting anti-imperialist slogans, the protesters blocked the railroad and with demanded an end to Greece's involvement in the ongoing imperialist war in Ukraine, as well as in the transformation of Alexandroupolis into a hub of NATO aggression.

It must be reminded that, for weeks now, the port of Alexandroupolis in north-east Greece has become a key hub for the deployment of US-NATO troops in Eastern Europe. The armoured and other combat vehicles of the US Army arrive by ship and are then transported by road and rail to Romania and Poland.

With this symbolic action, the Organizations of the KKE and KNE sent a message condemning the imperialist war in Ukraine and our country’s involvement in it, which escalates the danger posed to the people and turns Alexandroupolis into a launching pad against the peoples.
