KKE Leader: The Messages of the Polytechnic Are Alive and Timeless

November 17, 2020

ATHENS — "The messages of the Polytechnic are alive, timeless and alway topical. The slogans 'USA out', 'NATO out', 'bread, education, freedom, work, learning, health', continue to stir the hearts of Greek youth and the Greek people, who are fighting today and every day, against an anti-popular policy that has continued all these years. It is unacceptable, under the pretext of the pandemic, to take reactionary anti-popular measures to ban the celebrations for the Polytechnic, in the any case symbolic form they take this year. The ban of the Greek police by order of the government on the gathering of more than three people, especially today, is unacceptable, undemocratic, unconstitutional and denounced by the entire political spectrum of the country," opposition Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas said on Tuesday.


ATHENS - The General Secretariat for Civil Protection on Friday urged the public to be particularly careful and to protect themselves against potential dangers as a result of the intense weather phenomena expected this weekend, starting late on Friday night.
