From the Greek Communist Party (KKE) website:
A Planned People’s Struggle is Necessary
“The large majority of the workers, of the people must declare this to the power of capital: We do not believe whatever you tell us. We are regrouping to win small and big battles and ultimately the war.” Aleka Papariga stressed this amongst other things when speaking to a mass and dynamic rally of the KKE on the evening of 25/5 in the city of Larissa.
The GS of the CC of the party underlined that today more dynamic and better-planned working class and popular struggles are needed, as well as small and big victories. But it should be clear that we must wage a struggle which will lead to the overthrow of the power of the monopolies.
Earlier, in an interview with the radio station “Real Fm”, Aleka Papariga answering a question in relation to the attempts on the 25/5 in various Greek cities for mobilizations to be organized like those which are taking place in Spain, noted amongst other things that:
“We, because of our nature as a party, always look sympathetically on – and I tell you this in all sincerity- attempts by people to find a way to express themselves. The spontaneous always exists and chiefly develops when there simultaneously exists conscious political activity- the spontaneous never operates in a vacuum.
The revolutions sweeping the Arab world and Southern Europe are, without exception, heavily influenced by the local communist parties.
