MESSAGE FROM EEK,GREECE TO THE INTERNATIONAL DONBASS FORUM
To the International Donbass Forum
MESSAGE FROM EEK,GREECE
The EEK( Workers Revolutionary Party) of Greece sends its warmest communist internationalist greetings to the coming Donbass International Forum and wishes a great success to its works. Unfortunately other urgent poiltical obligations did not permitted us to come to the Forum of May 8th,
We express also to you our revolutionary greetings for May Day, the International day of the proletariat as well as for the 70th of the Great Day of Victory against fascism on May 9!
We pay tribute to all the martyrs of the antifascist struggle, of your martyrs as well as to all those who were burned alive by the fascists and Banderaists on May 2, 2014 in Odessa.
The resistance of the Donbass workers and popular masses against US and EU imperialism, NATO and the IMF as well as against their puppets in Kiev and their fascist gangs is insolubly tied with the struggle of the workers and impoverished people of Greece against the barbaric measures of "austerity", in reality of social cannibalism, imposed to us by the hated troika of the EU, the European Central Bank and the IMF.
Both the crisis in Greece and in Ukraine, after the post-2008 world capitalist crisis, manifest the historical impasse of the entire EU imperialist project, following the catastrophic demise of the Soviet Union, to re-colonize the former Soviet space and to "unify" the Continent under the rule of the strongest sections of capital. Non pasaran! United all over Europe and all over the world we can defeat them!
Last year, on March 2014, our Party hosted in Athens the 2nd Euro-Mediterranean Conference called by the Balkan Socialist Center "Christian Rakovsky" and the RedMed network. Inescapably, the Ukrainian crisis came to the center of all debates and unanimously we supported a motion condemning the February 2014 coup in Kiev and expressing full solidarity to the popular anti- fascist, anti-imperialist and anti-oligarchic resistance to it, particularly in the Donbass region. In the same spirit , implementing the resolutions of that Conference we campaigned and organized public meetings for internationalist solidarity not only in Greece bur also throughout the Balkans, in Central and Western Europe, even in the Middle East and Latin America.
Now , a 3rd International Euro-Mediterranean Conference will take place in Athens again on July 18-20, 2015. The historic struggle in Donbass , of course, will be again at the center. We want to invite all communists and fighters from different political traditions of the left taking part in your Forum to join us , in an internationalist spirit, in our Conference too.
Death to fascism! Freedom to the peoples! All power to Soviets! International Socialism or barbarism!
On behalf of the Central Committee of the EEK
