Joint statement by Giorgos Lambroulis, Member and Vice President of the Greek Parliament, Sotiris Zarianopoulos, former Member of the European Parliament, and Giorgos Maganas, cadre of the KKE, on the Press Project website:

"The inclusion of our names in the Ukrainian blacklist with the misleading title “Peacemaker” proves the fact that the Ukrainian bourgeois state chose to overtly target us, as well as our Party, the KKE, which accepted an invitation in November 2014 to visit the Donbas region to express our solidarity with the people of the region and Ukraine as a whole.

Indonesia's new anti-communist penal code smells like Suharto's horrible legacy: Marxism prohibited

A terrible spectre is haunting Indonesia these days; the spectre of dictator Suharto. The new penal code voted by the Indonesian Parliament on December 6th consists a major setback in fundamental civil rights and political freedoms.

Apart from the ban on extramarital sex relations and the restrictions in the freedom of expression (ban on protests, restrictions on academic liberties, etc), the new penal code prohibits the teaching and spreading of political views counter of state ideology (Pancasila). In fact, under the new legislation, the spreading and teaching of Marxism-Leninism, the worldview of scientific socialism, is prohibited. 

"Yes, but Stalin...", by Nikos Mottas: New book exposing anti-communist lies released in Greece

The book's cover.
What were the Moscow Trials and the so-called “Great Purge” of 1936-38? Who was the actual perpetrator of the Katyn Massacre? What was the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact and is it true that Stalin allied with Hitler? What was agreed at the Yalta Conference? Why was the Berlin Wall built? What happened in Hungary and Czecholoslovakia in 1956 and 1968 respectively? Who were Aleksandr Solzenitsyn and George Orwell? Is there a dictatorship in Cuba? How does the EU systematically promote anti-communist revision of history?

The above are some of the questions answered in the new book written by “In Defense of Communism” editor in chief Nikos Mottas and published in Greek language by Atexnos Publishing House

Poland's shameful attempt to erase historical memory - Four Red Army memorials demolished

It's been a long time since the authorities of Poland began their attempt to erase historical memory, by slandering socialism-communism and destroying Soviet-era monuments. In this effort, the bourgeois authorities don't hesitate to demolish memorials dedicated to the heroic Red Army soldiers who fought against the monster of Nazism in the Second World War. 

On Thursday, within the framework of Russo-phobia and in an attempt to equate capitalist Russia with the Soviet Union, four more monuments in different locations across Poland were destroyed.

The European Parliament continues being an endless source of anti-communist propaganda.

SYRIZA's shameless anti-communism strikes again

These days, SYRIZA's youth organization organizes in Athens its annual festival called “Sputnik”. What do social democrats have to do with a name that is so closely related with the Soviet Union

The answer can be found in the attempt of SYRIZA to manipulate working class people by using for its festival a name that symbolizes one of socialism's great achievements, the conquest of space.

PSUV government's offensive against the Communist Party of Venezuela continues

In a statement, the Department of International Politics of the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV) stresses out:

This week, Vice President of the PSUV Diosdado Cabello once again lashed out against the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV), but this time he went a little further, irresponsibly accusing our Party of receiving financing from one of the former PSUV ministers.

The statements made by this high-ranking governing party leader seek to link the PCV with alleged acts of corruption committed by a former minister of Hugo Chávez and Nicolás Maduro’s administrations. They come as part of the plan aimed at forging a false flag that will serve to nationally and internationally justify the intervention and illegalization of the PCV, as well as the violation of the parliamentary immunity of our Deputy and Secretary General Oscar Figuera.

Gorbachev exposed: "My ambition was to liquidate communism"

"My ambition was to liquidate communism, the dictatorship over all the people. Supporting me and urging me on in this mission was my wife, who was of this opinion long before I was. I knew that I could only do this if I was the leading functionary. In this my wife urged me to climb to the top post. 
 
While I actually became acquainted with the West, my mind was made up forever. I decided that I must destroy the whole apparatus of the CPSU and the USSR. Also, I must do this in all of the other socialist countries. My ideal is the path of social democracy. Only this system shall benefit all the people. This quest I decided I must fulfil.

KKE: "Hands off the anti-fascist monuments of Europe”

“The Red Army's antifascist Victory cannot be erased! Hands off the anti-fascist monuments of Europe” points out a statement of the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) concerning the dismantling of the Soviet monument in Riga, Latvia on 23 August. More specifically, the statement (here in Greek) reads: 

“The decision of the authorities of Latvia and the city of Riga to destroy the entire complex of the anti-fascist monument, which was located in a central part of the Latvian capital and related to the liberation of Riga from the fascist invaders, is another step towards the rewriting of history. It took place in a country where anti-communist persecutions are practiced and which has already proceeded to the justification of the Nazi collaborators, the Nazi “legions” which officially parade ever year.
