Marx Memorial Library — an oasis of education, ideas and history in the heart of London

Dimitris Koutsoumbas at the Marx Memorial Library.
“We are actually in an oasis, here in the heart of London, an oasis of knowledge, education, learning, ideas, history, memory about issues which mainly the young generation, the working class in general, in Britain, Europe and the whole world, must learn. Because the ideas of Marx, Lenin, Engels, of all the great revolutionaries of humanity, are alive and relevant. They are relevant today, until we reach the overthrow of the rotten capitalist system and build a new, really socialist society”.

The above statement was made by Dimitris Koutsoumbas, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), after his visit at the Marx Memorial Library on Friday, January 10th.
