Tsipras on ‘OXI Day’ Anniversary: We Are Fighting for a Free Country, a Safe and Strong Homeland

ATHENS – At a time of war, instability, and threats, “we are fighting for a free homeland, a safe one, made strong by the power of its values and people,” SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Friday in a message commemorating the 28th October anniversary.

“We support peace, but we stand united before Turkish threats, and do not back down at all on our sovereign rights,” he stressed.

The main opposition leader spoke of the courage of the Greek people facing fascism and Nazism, and of the national resistance that was followed by the leftist restistance organizations.

Today, Tsipras said, “We are fighting for a state that will protect the many and will not favor the few; a democracy open to progress and shut to pro-regime practices and suppression,” a society that stands up against nazism, those who hurt the rule of law, and those who undermine democratic rights. History has shown that liberty cannot be taken for granted, it is not whole without democracy and justice everywhere, and it demands constant vigilance, resistance, unity, and struggle, he added.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis welcomed the amendment tabled in parliament on Thursday about blocking convicted criminals from running in elections as formal or shadow heads of political party formations.
