“If you get past the cause, either intentionally or because of ignorance, then you cannot find a medicine or the medicine administered is dangerous for the people; to mimic (IMF leader) Strauss-Kahn’s humour who presented the IMF as a doctor,” Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga said on Thursday.

“If you get past the cause, either intentionally or because of ignorance, then you cannot find a medicine or the medicine administered is dangerous for the people; to mimic (IMF leader) Strauss-Kahn’s humour who presented the IMF as a doctor,” Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga said on Thursday.

Speaking in a press conference, she underlined that “a war has been declared against the workers in Greece and the rest of Europe and we have to be prepared to ensure that the war will end with the victory of the people”.

Papariga stressed that the memorandum signed with the troika (IMF, ECB, EU) will not solve the debt problem, adding that the deficit will not be tackled through spending cuts and tax collection.

Papariga maintained that the only response is to set up a “Social Popular Front” against the cruel measures adopted by the government while she also criticised opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) accusing it of “compromise and defeatism”.
