The Proposition of the Parliamentary Team of the KKE on the content of the Referendum

The KKE calls on the Greek People to reject both proposals [Eurogroup's and government's] and to adopt the proposal of the Parliamentary team of the KKE which states:

"The government is proposing conducting a referendum with the question of whether the people approve or disapprove the proposal for an agreement submitted by the EU-IMF-ECB.

The Parliamentary team of the KKE believes that the issues that should be put to the people's judgment are the following:

NO to the EU-IMF-ECB and to the government's proposals.

Disengagement from the EU, Abolition of Memoranda and of all anti-popular implementation measures thereof."

The proposition, submitted by the Parliamentary Team of the KKE in quorum, was read in the Parliament by Thanasis Pafilis, member of the CC and Parliamentary Representative of the party, during his statement on the issue of the anti-constitutional character of the Referendum posed by Ev. Venizelos of PASOK.

Kostas Varnalis-The Fateful

Kostas Varnalis
The Fateful

In the cellar of the tavern
surrounded by smoke and swearing
(the music barrel screeching upstairs)
our whole crew was drinking yesterday.
Yesterday, like every night,
so the poison could be swallowed.

Lesbos Labor Center Announcement against the new NATO base in the Aegean

In the 66 years since the creation of the imperialist mechanism of NATO, humanity has experienced dictatorship, war and terrorism. This was and remains the role of such a mechanism, whose goal is to serve the interests of the plutocracy -- who created it in the first place -- and to repress and murder the peoples. The governments of our country, worthy supporters of capital all these years, not only did not oppose imperialist plans, not only chose to remain passive observers in all the wars close or far from our "neighborhood", but actively participated in them, since they sent the army outside our borders and offered military bases to assist the butchers of the peoples, to provide Americans, the EU and NATO with their attack base.

Anti-imperialist island chain against the NATO base

The Samos Peace Committee (member of the EEDYE-Greek Committee for International Disarmament and Peace) and the Samos Labor Center are calling for a PanAegean mobilization against the creation of a NATO base in the Aegean that was announced by the SYRIZA-ANEL government. The mobilization will take place on Thursday, 18 June at 7.30 pm; it will take place in all islands at the same time, so as to raise a popular wall in the defense of national independence and sovereignty and to create a human, anti-imperialist and pacifist chain from Lemnos to Kastelorizo. This chain will shout:

- No to the plans of the SYRIZA-ANEL government for a NATO base in the Aegean.

- No involvement of our country in the imperialist interventions of NATO, the EU, and the USA.

- No earth and no water to the murderers of the peoples.

Anti-NATO banner in Rhodes Castle

In response to the SYRIZA-ANEL coalition government plans for a NATO base in Karpathos or another island of the Aegean, the Rhodes Peace Council hung a giant banner on the Rhodes Medieval castle. 

The banner states, in Greek and English: "No NATO base, not in Karpathos, not in the Aegean".
