"Enraged Demonstrators", "Police work load" and the justification for repressing demonstrators by the right and the "Left" (GUE/NGL) of the European Parliament.
The delegation of the KKE in the European Parliament denounces both unacceptable resolutions submitted to the plenary vote of the European Parliament on "the right to peaceful protest and the analogous use of violence": the first, co-signed by the European People's Party, the Liberal and Conservative Reformists; the second, co-signed by the Social Democrats, the so-called "Left Party" (GUE / NGL) and the Greens. These are equally reprehensible resolutions that compete with each other as to which can justify and better legitimize barbaric police violence against popular demonstrations in a number of EU Member States.
