The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) is organising a rally in downtown Athens' Syntagma Square on Monday evening, which will be addressed by KKE leader Aleka Papariga.

In an announcement, the KKE called on all working people, youth, self-employed professionals and unemployed to "give a resounding, militant reply to the escalation of the barbarous anti-popular measures" and to send the clear message of "no tolerance, no subjugation to the course of the people's bankruptcy that the government, EU and IMF are leading to in order to protect the interests of the plutocracy".
The KKE said that the path of heavy sacrifices to the benefit of the profits and competitiveness of the big-time businessmen will have no end, nor any benefit for the people, but instead leads the people to poverty and brought the crisis.

It rejected as fraudulent main opposition New Democracy's (ND) claim that a "different policy mix" benefiting the people exists, Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) leader George Karatzaferis' calls for a "correct way of implementing the Memorandum", and the "form of debt restructure" proposed by the various groupings of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA parliamentary alliance).

All those forms of management of the crisis have the same result, demolition of the labour, social security and social conquests, and shutdown of the self-employed and small-size businessmen, the KKE warned.

The only solution for the people is a popular alliance, organisation, and a strong KKE, the announcement said, and urged an "organised disobedience and counter-attack so that the people will not pay the price of the crisis and the debt that the plutocracy created", Greece's "disengagement from the imperialistic wars", and "modern popular rights".
