There is a strong possibility of a renewed global economic crisis before there is any real economic recovery, Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga predicted in an address at a festival held by KKE's youth group KNE at Kastro in the port city of Patras.
Speaking on Saturday night, she said that "there is strong chance that the competition between capitalist states will flare up again and strengthen the trend for departure from the euro."
"Without an aggressive intervention by the peoples, the repercussions will be unpredictable, catalytic and with serious consequences," she added, noting that a cessation of payments was not unlikely in Greece, nor a fall of the current government.
