In a report published today, Rizospastis newspaper (Organ of the CC of the KKE) denounces the screening by the Greek state-owned broadcaster ERT of an anticommunist, antisoviet documentary titled "The day when... Stalin won the war".

"Ludlow, Greek Americans in the Colorado coal war" - A documentary by Leonidas Vardaros

The trailer of the film.

It's title is "Ludlow, Greek Americans in the Colorado coal war". The documentary by Leonidas Vardaros made it's premiere on April 6, at Alkionis Theater in Athens. The documentary, which received an award at the 18th Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, narrates the history of the 1913-14 clash between the United Mine Workers of America and the Coal companies under the leadership of John D.Rockefeller. The workers' descendants remind their fathers and grandfathers' struggle and the injustice they faced.

The class-struggle of 1913-14 led to the Ludlow massacre, on April 20, 1914 the cold-blooded murder of women and children and the assassination of three unionists, among them the leader of the Greek strikers Louis Tikas.
