Opposition Parties’ Messages for Greek Independence Day 2023

ATHENS – Opposition parties issued their messages for Greek Independence Day 2023 in a series of statements on Friday.

The Communist Party of Greece said that “the bourgeois national liberation Revolution of 1821 remains emblematic, because it confirms that the new, the necessary, and the revolutionary always prevail over the old.”

This conflict with the old “is not only historically valuable, it actually extends to the present in the clash with the now outdated capitalist system,” the party underlined.

MeRA25 leader Yianis Varoufakis said that the words “‘Freedom or Death’ were not easily uttered by our rebellious ancestors,” as they “chose to sacrifice everything for a freedom that might never come, in full knowledge of the risk-benefit ratio.”

“Today, March 25, we, their descendants, as we honor them, we have an obligation to ask ourselves honestly: Are we worthy of them? Are we ready to set aside the private risk-benefit balance for freedom?”, Varoufakis added.

Looking at young people, he said, “I think that yes, young people are worthy, and this alone is a source of hope for this country.”


ATHENS - Investigators looking into a fire at a factory containing a catering company that delivered tainted meals to elementary school students, sickening them, are said to have found evidence it may have been set to cover up evidence.
