Greek soldier: "The bloodstained NATO flag is a disgrace for our Navy"

The advanced involvement of the Greek Armed Forces in NATO's imperialist missions and plans has led to multiple reactions within the ranks of soldiers who have publicly denounced the participation of Greece in NATO's drills. 

A month ago, Greek Navy conscripts had publicly protested the participation of Greek ships in NATO's military exercises. This time, Stavros Papadakis, member of the "Navarinon" frigate, officially reported his strong disagreement for the involvement of the frigate in the so-called "Sea Guardian" maritime security operation of NATO in the Mediterranean Sea.

Greek Navy conscripts stand up against NATO: "There is no place for NATO in Greece"

"The bloodstained NATO symbols are a disgrace for the ships of the Greek fleet" says a conscript at the Greek Navy, expressing his strong protest for the participation of Greek ships in NATO's military exercises. 

Conscripts who are serving their military service at the Greek Navy denounce the decision of the SYRIZA-ANEL government to involve Greece's Armed Forces even deeper in NATO's imperialist plans.

SHAME: Greek soldier punished because he participated in anti-war demonstration!

Soldier Kaklamanos speaking during the antiimperialist,
antiwar rally in Athens, 27 February 2018.
Aimilios Kaklamanos, soldier of the Greek army, was punished by his unit for participating and speaking in an antiimperialist demonstration organised by the KKE in Athens on February 27th. In his speech, the soldier had argued against the participation of Greek soldiers in the warmongering imperialist plans of NATO-EU. 

Today, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued a statement condemning as "unacceptable" the punishment of the soldier. More specifically the statement reads:

"The KKE denounces the unacceptable punishment of the soldier who participated and spoke at the antiwar rally of the KKE, in Athens, on 27/2.

KKE: The "Iniochos 2018" multinational military exercise consists a "war rehearsal"

In a statement regarding the multinational air force exercise "Iniochos 2018" in Greece, the Press Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece points out the following:

"The multinational exercise "Iniochos 2018", with the participation of a large number of forces from the USA, Britain, Italy, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Cyprus, is conducted neither for the strengthening of the defense nor for the protection of the country's sovereign rights, but consists a "war rehearsal". Such exercises test in practice the operational plans schemed by the imperialist powers, aiming at the pillaging of the resources of the region and the control of their transportation's routes, bloodsheding and uprooting the people, like in Syria. Besides, for that reason the US ambassador G.Pyatt has been invited to attend the exercise.

According to a report published in "Rizospastis", soldiers denied to participate in the guarding of NATO's newly established helicopter base at the port of Alexandroupolis, in northern Greece. 

Talking to Rizospastis, one of the Greek soldiers - who perform their military service- said:

"We will never guard, or carry out any other service that supports NATO and the American murderers of the people. That is what I personally supported in my report to the (military) command. My colleagues did the same. It is provocative and unacceptable that they bring in our country, in our home, NATO's army which plan and unleash wars against the people."

Greek soldiers declare NATO forces "unwelcome"

THEY ARE NOT WELCOME!

With an open letter, soldiers from military camps in Evros and Thrace in Greece express their protest against the facilitations that Greece's Armed Forces provide to NATO's exercise "Noble Jump"

More speficially, the soldiers denounce the SYRIZA-ANEL government for providing Greek "territory and waters" to NATO's forces and underline that the governmental policy consists "a provocation for the soldiers, who are children of the Greek people, especially after the reactions of soldiers and the popular movement which, for at least 20 days, with statements, demonstrations, reports and letters from Greece and Cyprus, have expressed their opposition to NATO".
