Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Secretary General Aleka Papariga, addressing a party event in Elefsina, Western Attica, on Tuesday evening, spoke of a "theatrical danger mongering performance" by the government, the big businessmen and the EU concerning the disbursement of the loan's fifth tranche.
Papariga added that their aim "was and is to intimidate the people so as to present the medium-term programe and the memorandum II as a salvation and the new disastrous measures for the people, the sellout of public property as necessary."

The KKE leader further said that "the more the crisis deepens the more the war against the people will escalate, along with extortions and intimidating dilemmas."
