Press Statement of the Communist
Organization of Greece(KOE)
On todays huge demonstrations and the death of three bank employees
The Communist Organization of Greece
condemns the IMF-EUs government for its policy of annihilation of the society
and the orgy of repression unleashed against the people. The death of the three
bank employees because of fully condemnable acts provokes sorrow and anger,
which are added to the wrath felt by the whole society against the government
of the Quisling Papandreou.
This cynical government, assisted by
the mainstream Media that remind us of the dictatorships TV, has the
cheekiness to put the responsibility for the death of the three employees on
the hundreds of thousands of demonstrators, on the mass movement and more
concretely on the Left. It is Papandreou himself who is igniting the tension
and the violence because of the measures adopted by his government. No matter
how many excuses he will invent in the Parliament, no matter how many appeals
for social consent he will make, Papandreou will remain in history as the would-be
gravedigger of the Greek people.
Athensand the whole country lived the
biggest demonstrations of the last 30 years, with half million marching for six
hours in Athensalone. The people demands that Papandreou and those MPs who intend to
vote in favor of transforming the society into a human waste bank, account for
their crimes. Those who handed over the country and the people to the hyenas of
the capital and of the markets, those who attempt to condemn the workers and
the youth to extermination, will account to the people.
The police attacked brutally the
biggest demonstrations of the last 30 years; it transformed Athensinto a huge gas chamber, and also
attacked brutally the marches in Thessalonikiand Patras. The Minister of
Repression shall account for this!
We hold accountable as well the
owner of Marfin Bank, this unsolicited “savior of the Nation” who obliged his
employees to remain inside the concrete branch, despite the fact that he knew the
danger was imminent. Obviously, human life is cheaper for the capital than the
daily profits of a bank branch.
The coordinated effort of the
government, of the right-wing opposition and of the extreme right-wing to
exploit the death of the three employees in order to stop the torrent of the
popular anger, will not go unanswered. The wrath and the despair that coexist
in society will send to hell Papandreou and any MP who will vote in favor of
the Greek people’s annihilation.
