Democracy in Latvia? Court orders the termination of the activity of the Latvian Workers' Front

Since the dissolution of the  Soviet Union, the newly “independent” Baltic countries, namely Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, have adopted anti-communism as an official state ideology. 
 
Communist Parties have been banned, communists are persecuted for their activity, while Nazi collaborators (e.g. Estonian Waffen-SS) and fascist groups are being rehabilitated with honours. The governments of the Baltic states, under the auspices of the European Union, have championed in the distortion of history, especially the one of the Second World War

The European Communist Action stands by the side of the struggling farmers in Europe

In a statement the European Communist Action expresses solidarity to the struggle of farmers across Europe:

"The mass farmers’ protests that are taking place in many European countries, such as Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Greece, prove that the policies followed by the EU and the anti-popular governments, such as the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the “green” transition, have caused acute problems of economic survival for farmers and stockbreeders.

Greek Army cadet prosecuted over anti-NATO views

By Nikos Mottas

The spectre of censorship seems to be back in the Greek Armed Forces these days. Konstantinos Kesopoulos, Cadet reserve officer of Infantry in the Hellenic Army, has been summoned for an official apology after expressing himself against Greece's military involvement in the Euro-Atlantic imperialist plans in the Middle East.

The cadet's “crime” was the fact that that he publicly expressed his opposition to the dispatch of a Greek frigate in the Red Sea within NATO and EU's operations against the Houthis. He also demanded the closure of all foreign military bases and the cancellation of the Greek-US joint drills which actually prepare the Hellenic Army for active participation in the imperialist war fronts in Ukraine and the Middle East.

"European Historical Consciousness", or EU's deplorable attempt to equate Communism with Nazism

By Nikos Mottas

The European Parliament has never ceased being an endless source of anti-communist propaganda. Having adopted anti-communism as its official ideology, the EU and its institutions relentlessly continue the attempt to re-write history by promoting the deeply unscientific and unhistorical theory of "the two extremes".

More specifically, according to a recent statement by the Europarliament Group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), the EU Parliament published a report on “European historical consciousness”, in which it “acknowledges the crimes committed by Nazi, fascist and communist totalitarian regimes as well as under colonialism...”!

KKE on Mitsotakis-Zelensky joint declaration: Their invocation of international law is hypocritical

In a statement concerning the Joint Declaration signed by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskyy in Athens, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) stresses out:

“As much as Mr Mitsotakis hypocritically invokes the “international law”, he can't hide that actual aim of his government, which is the more active and deep involvement of our country in the imperialist war in Ukraine and in NATO plans in the region. Essentially, that is, the ND government feeds those factors that led both to the NATO-Russia conflict in Ukraine, as well as to the aggravation of the problems in the Balkan countries.

MEPs of the KKE: Statement on the new despicable ploy against Cuba in the European Parliament

The MEPs of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) denounce the new unacceptable ploy of the European Parliament against Cuba before the peoples of the world.

Through the resolution adopted by the European parliament on 12/7/23, it is once again demonstrated that the EU’s long-standing aim is to undermine the achievements of the Cuban people.

“Medieval Inquisition” returns to Europe with anti-communism as a spearhead

Do you remember the so-called “Velvet Revolution” back in 1989 in Czechoslovakia? Do you remember the promises of the then leaders of the counterrevolution, like Vaclav Havel, about the supposed coming of “freedom” and “democracy”?

Well, more than 33 years later, it has been proved that the “Velvet Revolution” had nothing to do with revolution but, on the contrary, it was a major setback for the working people of Czechoslovakia.
