Athens declaration: The world is entering a new era of anti-imperialist struggle

That as a result of this shift in the balance of forces, the remaining socialist and anti-imperialist countries and movements became isolated and exposed and were forced to make difficult compromises in order to survive (developing the tourism industry in Cuba, signing the nuclear agreement ...

Thessalia tragedy. Greece in NATO and Zionist crosshairs

The Thessalia plains floods are a catastrophe of biblical proportions - deliberate or 'climate change'? VANESSA BEELEY Thessalia floods in Greece. Barely reported by legacy media. Why? We have covered the fires in Greece that serve NATO expansion and the installation of wind farms to provide energy for the EU. Now, we have the devastating floods in Thessalia north of Athens which is one of the three main bread baskets of Greece, now reduced to a sea of pollution, livestock carcasses and dead fish: https://youtu.be/ieQCe24BjJo

Statement of the Anti-Imperialist Platform: How the KKE uses Marxist terminology to cover its retreat from Marxism

The party of the Greek revolution has objectively transformed itself into an agent of imperialism, both nationally and internationally (1). On the basis of a Marxist analysis of the rapidly escalating imperialist war drive, anti-imperialists of the communist movement came together last year to form the World Anti-imperialist Platform. This was done in order to apply our energies to what has been identified as the most pressing priority facing our movement at this moment: to rally the widest possible forces in support of the struggle against the US-led imperialist bloc – a struggle which has the potential to unleash the next, decisive wave of socialist revolutions if correctly approached. Launched in Paris last year, the Platform’s founding statement outlines the tasks that w...

The Greek Shipwreck Oracle: a Horrible Accident at Sea or the Inevitable Function of Militarized Borders?

Photo: Lauren Markham. In the early morning on June 14, 47 nautical miles from the coast of Pylos, Greece, a fishing boat packed with about 700 passengers sank into the water. The boat carried people from Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, Afghanistan, and Palestine, many who were asylum seekers. One hundred and four of them have been rescued, leaving the anticipated death toll near a staggering 600, which would make this one of the deadliest tragedies ever recorded in the Mediterranean. In the following conversation, Lauren Markham, author of The Far Away Brothers: Two Young Migrants and th...

After Brutal Assault, Yanis Varoufakis Urges Progressives to Focus on ‘What Really Matters’

Former Greek Finance Minister and MeRA25 party leader Yanis Varoufakis speaks to the media in Athens on March 14, 2023.  (Photo: Dimitris Kapantais/SOOC/AFP via Getty Images) "I will recover," the Greek leftist said. "But those 57 from the train accident in Tempi won't, and their families' pain cannot be treated." BRETT WILKINS Recovering from a brutal assault that left him with a broken nose and cheekbone, leftist Greek lawmaker Yanis Varoufakis on Tuesday urged progressives "not get distracted" from the railway accident that killed 57 people last month or the neoliberal "privatize everything doctrine" he blames for the disaster. Appearing on ANT1's "Kallimera Ellada" (Good Morning, Greece) on Tuesday, Varoufakis—the parliamentary leader of the left-wing MeRA25 pa...

Posted by: John Phoenix Hurricane in the European Parliament: Arrested the Greek VP and an Italian MEP in the Shady “Soros List” On the cover image George Soros, former Italian MEP Pier Antonio Panzeri and EU Parliament Vice President Eva Kaili by Carlo Domenico Cristofori VERSIONE ORIGINALE IN ITALIANO Those who were arrested by the Belgian judiciary in the context of a corruption investigation involving the European Union and, in all probability, Qatar are not just politicians of low profile. The Soccer World Cup is now taking place over there and therefore, perhaps, it is not yet the political moment to officially mention the alleged involvement of the Arab nation in this ugly legal case.

How British Imperialism Crushed the Greek Revolution

Part 2 (By Nina Kosta and George Korkovelos) The British in Greece English historian Elizabeth Barker writes that during WW2, the British government “continued to behave as if Greece was its fiefdom“. The only military aid that Britain gave to Greece was Italian loot from North Africa, while at the same time undermining efforts to buy modern aircraft from the US, which eventually, although paid for by Greece, ended up in the RAF. The British presence in occupied Greece was a brutal colonial operation that led to the Greek Civil War (1946-1949). Churchill considered Greece to be an integral part of the British Empire and wanted exclusive control over it:  “Even the last British employee controlled the Greek government abroad (exiled in Cairo) completely. They co...
