Dimitris Koutsoumbas: The EU is only getting worse — A strong KKE, no other solution exists

A strong result for KKE in the European Parliament elections on June 9 will "be the best investment for the future, for all that we have to face and the battles we will fight together", underlined Dimitris Koutsoumbas, General Secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) during a speech in the Athens district of Kolonos on Sunday.

"The people are now well aware that there are no saviours... that no governmental stability, nor any governmental change, is going to change their life as long as there no real blows to the policy that sacrifices their rights for the profits of the few. This is the system and this is the EU of exploitation, wars and injustice," he said.
He urged voters to join "the thousands who have already chosen the path of struggle, disobedience and walking alongside the KKE," adding that the repercussions of capitalist growth were visible all around them.

After all, he said, the choices are two: "Either we approve and tolerate the brutality we live to continue and escalate, or we declare: Enough, that's it!".

Dimitris Koutsoumbas also referred to the people in Palestine who "have been experiencing a real genocide for months by the murderous state of Israel" and added that "the EU, the US, NATO, the Greek government openly support the perpetrator of this genocide, while the other parties provide an alibi, by voting to the European Parliament and voting for Israel's alleged "right" to self-defense".

"We vote for the KKE and demand that our country recognizes the state of Palestine here and now, on the 1967 borders, according to the unanimous decision of the Greek Parliament, as well as to end the country's involvement in the imperialist wars. The Hydra frigate and all troops being outside the borders must return now. The Greek territory, ports and airports, must cease being NATO strongholds and targets of reprisals", Koutsoumbas said.

A strong KKE, no other solution exists

During an interview on the Mega TV channel on Saturday 25/5, when asked about the Prime Minister's letter to Ursula von der Leyen, Dimitris Koutsoumbas reminded that 32 years ago, in 1992, 'Mitsotakis and the rest of the parties, except for the KKE, voted for the Maastricht Treaty, which transformed the EEC into the EU and envisaged the freedom of movement of capital and goods.” In other words", as Koutsoumbas pointed out, “he signed exactly the impunity of multinational corporations, the large business groups that do not hesitate to raise prices for their profits, with the Greek people and the other peoples of Europe paying the price.”

“Competition, multinational corporations lead there, and Mrs. Von der Leyen knows it very well because that is why the EU exists, to defend the interests of multinational corporations, lobbies, and capitalist profits,” he noted.

"The EU is getting worse and worse, but the way out is in the political proposal of the KKE, which is the only realistic one."
