The local branch of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) in Halkidiki on Monday said the party was determined to actively participate in mounting a coordinated front of local residents against the "Ellinikos Chrysos" investment in the Cassandra peninsula mines.
In its announcement, KKE claimed that the government had approved the environmental impact of the investment, in spite of strong opposition from residents and the warnings of the scientific community, caring only about boosting the profits of business groups during the crisis.
