"Today, as on every year, we honour the unjustly killed workers of Marfin. We refuse the great hypocrisy of the bourgeois state and its governments," he said, noting that the New Democracy, PASOK and SYRIZA governments that alternated in power over the last 10 years have grave responsibility for "leaving in the dark the provocateurish and other mechanisms that operated in this crime."
