Communist Party of Greece   Political Ideology   Communism, European Affiliation   None Colours   Red Website   inter.kke.gr (in English) The Communist Party of Greece (Greek:   , Kommounistik Kmma Elldas), better known by its acronym,  (usually pronounced "koo-koo-eh" or "kappa-kappa-epsilon"), is the oldest party in the Greek political scene. History Foundation The  was founded on 4 November 1918 as the Socialist Labour Party of Greece (Acronym: SEKE, Greek:    , Sosialistiko Ergatiko Komma Elladas) by Avraam Benaroya, a Sephardic Jewish teacher and labour movement leader in Thessaloniki. The party was run by a five-member central committee which included Nikos Dimitratos, D. Ligdopoulos, M. Sideris, A. Arvanitis and S. Kokkinos. KKE was not founded overnight. Its background is rooted in more than 60 years of existence of small socialist, anarchist and communist groups, mainly in industrialized areas. Those groups, following the example of the Paris Commune and the 1892 Chicago workers' movement for the 8 hour day, had in their immediate political goals the unification of the Greek workers in factory Unions, the struggle for the 8 hour working day in Greece, rises in the salaries, etc. The memory of the Paris Commune and the communist revolutionary efforts in the US, Germany and Russia at the beginning of the century, as well as the destruction that almost 20 years of wars had brought upon the Greek workers, boosted the foundation of a unified Social-Communist party in Greece. The October Revolution of the Bolsheviks in Russia in 1917 gave the signal for the foundation of Communist Parties nearly all over the whole globe. [1]. At the Second Congress of the SEKE in April 1920, the party decided to affiliate with the Third International. In addition, it extended its name to the Socialist Labour Party of Greece-Communist (SEKE-K). A new central committee was elected, which included Nikos and Panaghis Dimitratos, Yannis Kordatos, G. Doumas and M. Sideris. At the Third Extraordinary Congress of the SEKE-K in November 1924, the party was renamed the Communist Party of Greece and adopted the principles of Marxism-Leninism. Pandelis Pouliopoulos was elected as general-secretary. Ever since, the party has functioned on the basis of democratic centralism. A series of laws aimed explicitly at punishing communist thoughts and beliefs were soon implemented (the 1924 Katochyrotikon, the 1929 Idionymon, etc.).[2] The party was banned in 1936 by the Ioannis Metaxas' 4th of August Regime. Many KKE members were imprisoned or exiled on isolated islands.Communist Party of Greece Politics of Greece [edit] KKE aligned with Comintern that formed right after the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917. Right after SEKE's foundation, GSEE (General Federation of Greek Workers) founded and shared common goals with KKE. The first priority of KKE was the unification of the working class in Greece under the flag of Socialism [3] [4]. Because of its prominent role in all major people movements - strikes, anti-war demonstrations, foundation of trade unions and worker associations - its members where hunted and prosecuted. After G. Papandreou passed the law for prosecution of Communist teachers in 1924, Venizelo's government issued a law commonly known as "idionimo" under which the all members of the Communist Party of Greece, being considered dangers to the state, were to be disbanded from any public service or put in exile. The first prison camps for left wing citizens and communists were founded in that era. Nevertheless, KKE and its organizations, although small in numbers, continue operating in all Greek major cities, especially industrial areas such as Athens, Piraeus, Patra, Thessaly and Volos, Thessaloniki, Kavala and elsewhere.[5] KKE strongly opposed Greece's involvement in the Greco–Turkish War of 1919–1922, which it considered an imperialistic scheme to control the market of Asia Minor given the new political situation after the Ottoman Empire's collapse. KKE members propagated this position both on the front - which provoked accusations of treason from the Greek government - as well as in the mainland. KKE collaborated with the Soviet ambassador to persuade Venizelos' administration to withdraw its troops from Asia Minor, and to persuade the Soviet Union to exert political pressure on Kemal Ataturk's movement to allow autonomy for Greek cities in Asia Minor.[6] KKE collaborated with other newly founded Communist Parties to oppose the rise of the Fascist movement in Europe. In 1932, the Commitern decreed that anti-Fascist fronts be formed internationally. KKE responded by creating the People's Front, which was the largest Marxist anti-Fascist organization in Greece prior to the Metaxas dictatorship. KKE and other leftist political forces fostered the creation of labor unions in all sectors, including the General Greek Workers Confederation (). This was met by opposition from the Mid-War governments; in 1928 George Papandreou, as minister of Education, passed legislation against organized communist teachers, known as idionymo. Such legislation was often used to prosecute KKE members and other leftist activists. KKE members volunteered to fight on the side of the socialist government of Spain during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939; about 440 Greeks joined the ranks of the International Brigade, many of whom were high-ranking KKE members. [edit] KKE and the "Macedonian" Issue After the Balkan Wars in 1912-1916, World War I in 1916-1919, and the disastrous Campaign in Asia Minor 1920-1922, there have been many approaches from the super powers of that era, on the determination of the Greek State Borders on the North, given the fact that new State in Turkey, as well as the Bulgarian State were pressing for more territories in order to close a deal for their trading routes with the British Empire. The main fulcrum of their demand was the ethnic and religious minorities, currently leaving inside the Greek borders in Northern Greece. KKE had opposed any geo-strategical game in the area which would use any minorities to start a new "imperialistic war" in the region. Its policy was dictated by the main approach of the Communist Theory that any minorities should be self-determined under a common Socialist State.[7] At its third party congress in 1924, the KKE announced its policy to promote the creation of two new independent states in the northern Greek regions of Macedonia and Thrace. This party position was dictated by the general policy of the Communist Parties for self-determination of the various nationalities that were under the same state, and it had its roots in the successful example of the newly founded Soviet Union. KKE's declared policy on this Congress was the foundation of a People's Republic State where all the nationalities would be self determined and independent, at the same time giving room to a hard attack from the political status quo against the Communist Party as a Party that is aiming to the negation of the Greek State, an attack that continues to this day. What is known is that the ruling parties were simultaneously trying to cut a deal with Turkey and Bulgaria for parts of the Northern Greece (Macedonia and Thace), and return some of the islands of the Aegean and parts of Macedonia territory to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. This policy was reiterated several times throughout the pre-war era.[8][9] In 1934, the KKE expressed its intent to "fight for the national self-determination, and ultimately secession, of the repressed Macedonians and Thracians, and to collaborate for this goal with the Bulgarian organizations of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization and the Thracian Revolutionary Organisation under a People's Republic where all Nations will found their self-determinations and will build the common state of the workers..."[10]. The main front of this attack was the partial presentation of the Party's position. As a result to this KKE was presented by the main political status a party who's policy was "the detachment of large areas of northern Greece", and that "this was dictated by Comintern and hurt the popularity of Communism at the time".[11] Nikos Zachariadis officially renounced KKE's policy of secession in 1945.[12] By that time, the small organized forces of KKE, although with strong political roots mainly in big cities, could not stop this propaganda of the ruling parties during the Mid-War Era. In 1949, during the Fifth Congress of the Central Committee of KKE, it was quite clear about this issue that "...The Greek and the Macedonian people will win on this struggle only united..."[13]. This paragraph gave the opportunity to the government of Athens, together with the British government, to unleash a propaganda assault against KKE and DSE blaming them for plans of secession of northern Greece. At the same time, the British were closely collaborating with Tito's Yugoslavian government for putting more pressure on DSE rear front. The Yugoslavian army closed the borders and Slavomacedonian Nationalists formed militia units and attacked the positions of DSE in Vitsi mountain.[14] Proof of the close cooperation between the Yugoslavian government under Tito and the British government under Churchil is the fact that Tito named the Macedonian region inside the Yugoslavian state "Socialist Republic of Macedonia" and the government of Athens accepted it with minor opposition. In order for KKE to clear up its position on the "Macedonian" subject, the 6th Congress of its Central Committee was called a few months later, during which was clearly stated that KKE was fighting for a free Greece and for a common future for both people the Greek and the Slavomacedonian under the same state.[15] Another historical issue that led KKE on this position in 1949 is that a large amount of the Slavic-descended population that left in the border villages of Yugoslavia were fighting in the ranks of DSE. Some accounts raise this number on 40%[16], but official DSE documents based on DSE fighter registries don't go above 10-12%. It is nevertheless a fact that the number of Slavic speakers in the DSE increased considerably after the merger with the National Liberation Front in 1946, but these people were previously fighting mainly in the ranks of ELAS and EAM. A strong historical fact is that in 1948, when the Yugoslavian government tried to exploit the Slavic speakers in the ranks of KKE and DSE, the Central Committee issued a direct order of prosecution of "the agents of Tito inside the ranks of the party and of DSE" whenever they were revealed. The issue was ended by Central Committee in 1954 with the withdrawal of the position of self-determination of minorities in the North, as there was no real ground with insisting on this policy. In 1988, the General Secretary of KKE, Charilaos Florakis, closed this subject once and for all in his speech in the Greek Parliament, presenting KKE's political position on the matter. [edit] KKE during the Second World War   This article's factual accuracy is disputed. Please see the relevant discussion on the talk page. (March 2008) Main article: National People's Liberation Army (Greece) By 1940, the KKE had almost collapsed. Metaxas' dictatorship had imprisoned most of the members and leaders of the KKE. By October 1940 the KKE had almost 2,000 members in the whole country, half of whom were imprisoned or in exile for their opinions. The most prominent jails were the Acronauplia, Anafi, Ikaria, Kefalonia and the Central Athens Jail ("Averof"). A quite large number of the prisoners were shot in retaliation to the attacks of National People's Liberation Army (ELAS) partisans throughout the German occupation from 1941 to 1944, but a few escaped and joined National Liberation Front-ELAS forces. By 1940, the Security police had proved extremely successful in dismantling the KKE organisation; not only had it imprisoned the leadership, but it created a fake series of Rizospastis, the Central Committee newspaper. This generated confusion among the remaining scattered underground members.[17][18] Nevertheless, a small group of old party officials formed the "Old Central Committee". Two of them were elected by the 6th Conference.[19] The position adopted by the "Old Central Committee" against the war with Italy and Germany, gave room to divergent interpretation. In his memoirs for the Greek Civil war, C.M. Woodhouse (British allied liaison with Greek resistance groups during WWII) wrote "The 'Old Central Committee' interpreted a directive issued by Comintern as indicating collaboration with the German and Italian dictatorships, given the Hitler-Stalin alliance."[20]. On the other hand, Woodhouse argues, Siantos, who had escaped from prison, and Zachariadis, who was incarcerated, took the opposite view that KKE must support Metaxas in his position against Mussolini.[20] The archives of KKE [21] also address the confusion between different KKE cadres; the "Old Committee" interpreted the politics of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy as part of the "imperialistic game between the Axis forces and the British." KKE considered that the Metaxas regime was a "pawn of British imperialism in the region," [22] and, therefore, the "Old Committee" viewed any war between the Axis forces and the British as an "...imperialistic war that the people of any of the countries involved should not participate in...". According to KKE's account, this position had been criticized by Comintern since 1939 (a few months after the non-attack treaty between the USSR and Germany), which additionally had instructed KKE to fight against Italy in an eventual invasion of Greece.[23][24]   This article may require copy-editing for grammar, style, cohesion, tone or spelling. You can assist by editing it now.  (October 2007) Nikolaos Zachariadis, KKE general secretary, wrote from prison on 2 November 1940: "Today the Greek people are waging a war of national liberation against Mussolini's fascism. In this war we must follow the Metaxas government and turn every city, every village and every house of Greece into a stronghold of the National Liberation Fight ... On this war conducted by Metaxas government all of us should give all our forces without reservation. The working people's and the crowning achievement for today's fight should be and shall be a new Greece based on work, freedom, and liberated from any foreign imperialist dependence, with a truly pan-popular culture."[25][26] Several party members, including Nikos Ploumpidis of the "Old Central Committee" denounced this letter as a forgery of the Metaxas regime.[27][28] Zachariadis was even accused of releasing it to win the favour of K. Maniadakis, the Minister for Public Order in order to be released from prison.[6] According to some sources, when drafting this letter, Zachariadis was reportedly unaware of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and was castigated by the Comintern for an anti-Soviet stance.[29] According to KKE's official historiography, the "Old Central Committee" had denounced for its stance on the war issue; today KKE claims that the majority of the party membership had not followed the decision.[30][31] On 16 November 1940, according to non-communist sources, Zachariadis repudiated the line of his first letter in a second letter where he accused the Greek Army of waging a "fascist" and "imperialistic war" and appealed to the USSR for peaceful intervention,[32][33] thus aligning his position with the "Old Central Committee".[34] On 7 December 1940, the "Old Central Committee" issued a manifesto addressed "to all the workers and public servants, to all soldiers, sailors and airmen, to patriot officers, to the mothers, fathers, wives and children of the fighters and the workers of all neighboring countries", in which it describes the war as a game of the imperialist powers, headed by the British. According to KKE, the "Old Central Committee" based this opinion on the belief that Mussolini's Italy would not dare to attack a country that had a cooperation agreement with Soviet Union. It was using the example of Serbia, which by remaining neutral the USSR kept it from being attacked by the Germany. The main political line of this manifesto was the call to the soldiers on the front not to go beyond Greek borders, but after securing them to try seek a peace agreement with the enemy and then to the struggle against the regime in order to establish a new broad National Salvation Front.[35] This manifesto was criticized by the majority of the members and officials, in exile, in the prisons and free. According to references opposing the Communist Party of Greece, Zachariadis issued a third letter, on 17 January 1941, in which he explained the motives for his first letter and wrote: "Metaxas remains the principal enemy of the people and the country. His overthrowing is in the most immediate and vital interest of our people ... the peoples and soldiers of Greece and Italy are not enemies but brothers, and their solidarity will stop the war waged by capitalist exploiters."[29] On 22 June 1941, the KKE ordered its militants to organize "the struggle to defend the Soviet Union and the overthrow of the foreign fascist yoke".[32][36] According to the official KKE historiography, Zachariadis had issued no further letters, and the third letter may have been in fact the statement of the "Old Central Committee" on the 18 March 1941.[37] On April 21st the German invasion was launched, and Athens was occupied on 27 April, following an unconditional surrender of the Greek forces by General Georgios Tsolakoglou, who was later appointed Prime Minister by the Nazis. C.M Woodhouse, a British Intelligence officer, head of the British military delegation stationed by the Allies in Greece during WWII, wrote that on 18 March, when the Germans were moving unopposed into Bulgaria, KKE advised Greeks to follow the example of "the heroic fraternal people of Bulgaria" [38] Moreover, according to George Papandreou, there were hints of a possible collaboration between KKE and the Germans in forming a government under occupation.[39][40] This has not been historically proven since to date no evidence of such collaboration has been found. To the contrary, the allied command - to which ELAS was referring after the Cazzerta Pack- ordered the Greek resistance groups not to attack the retreating Nazi forces from Greece. ELAS never obeyed this order.[41][42][43]. In any case, confusion remained among many Greek communists as to what the Moscow-sanctioned position was. In his memoirs, KKE leader Ioannis Ioannidis wrote about a regional communist cadre who proclaimed the following as Greece was being bombed by the axis: "The Germans will not bomb us. The mustached-one (Stalin) will not let them, he said that they are communists there (in Germany)" [44] According to KKE historiography, the Macedonian Bureau of KKE formed the first armed resistance group in Greece following the surrender.[45] A large number of KKE members were already in prison before the German invasion.The occupation government handed them over to the Nazis although all of them - following the party's line- requested to be drafted and fight in the front. [46][14][47][48][49] There were a few occasions that police officers released the communist prisoners. The majority of the Communists were used as human shield to prevent ELAS attacks against occupation forces or they were executed as retaliation to those attacks -most known example being the 200 executed communists in Kesariani Shooting Range on the 1st of May 1944.[50] In 1941, several KKE members managed to escape prison. According to Woodhouse "...communist prisoners were released by the German occupation forces from the jail on the Acronauplia, at the request of the Bulgarian embassy in Athens". [51][52]. Unfortunately for the writers, this report was never verified by any other document or report giving room to question the overall validity of Woodhouse's facts. Although KKE was suffering from lack of central political leadership, its members, in groups per prison or per town were continue struggling according to their believes, trying to maintain constant connection with each other as much as possible.As an example that helps understanding KKE's members organization and determination is this of the twenty communists held as political prisoners in Heraklion, Crete. They demanded to be released to fight against the invading Germans. The collapsing Mataxas regime refused to release them, and they eventually escaped after their jail was bombarded, and joined with the Greek Army forces guarding the Heraklion harbor. After the fall of Crete, General Mandakas, the commanding chief of the Greek Army forces, joined the forces with ELAS and became one of its high ranking officers, operating in the resistance group's command center of Southern Greece and contacted the Battle of Athens against the British invasion on December 1944 as the military leader of ELAS's 1st Army Corp.[53][54] Nikos Zachariadis was imprisoned in the Dachau Concentration Camp; he was released in 1945 and returned to Greece as the elected general secretary of the KKE. During his imprisonment Andreas Tsipas and Georgios Siantos served as party general secretaries. The 6th Meeting of KKE Central Committee was held in Athens from 1–3 July 1941, which decided on the basis of an armed liberation struggle against the invaders. At the same time, the "Old Central Committee" submitted to the authority of the new Central Committee.[55] On 27 September 1941, after contacts between the KKE and all the remaining political forces, Greek communists together with five other Centrist and Leftist parties formed the National Liberation Front (EAM), in Kallithea, Athens, and began forming partisan militia units. The first united resistance organization was founded in the regions of Macedonia and Thrace on 15 May 1941. In Thessaloniki, the Macedonian Bureau of the KKE established, along with the Socialist Party, the Agrarian Party, the Democratic Union and Colonel Dimitrios Psarros, the "Eleftheria" (Liberty) organization. At the end of June 1941, the Macedonian Bureau of KKE organised the first two partisan units: the first was based in Kilkis and was named "Athanasios Diakos", the second was based in Nigrita and was named "Odysseas Androutsos". Those small partisan units blew up bridges, attacked police stations and finally organized into larger combat units comprising of more than 300 men each.[56] In several other places and in major cities, small armed groups of KKE members as well as non-communists began to emerge, protecting people from looters, the Germans or collaborators.[57] On 16 February 1942, the National People's Liberation Army (ELAS) was founded in a small kiosk in Fthiotida, and by 1943 consisted of 150,000 members, both men and women, with 30,000 as reserve units in major cities. The KKE played a prominent role in the organisation. By the end of the war, 800,000 Greek citizens, including workers but mostly peasants, had joined the ranks of the KKE. Despite its size, the KKE maintained the alliances in the EAM and its main stated aim was to form a unity government with all the parties that wanted to see Greece liberated from all powers.[58] [edit] Main article: Greek Civil War At the end of the war, fighting broke out between EAM and the Greek government, which had returned from its wartime exile. Backed by the KKE, the EAM refused to disarm ELAS and ELAN while the militias and police that had collaborated with the Germans remained free.[59] Six ministers of the EAM, most of whom were KKE members, resigned from their positions in the "National Unity" Government in November 1944. Fighting broke out in Athens on 3 December 1944 during a demonstration, organised by EAM, involving more than 100,000 people. According to some accounts, the police, covered by British troops,[60][61] opened fire on the crowd. More than 28 people were killed and 148 injured. According to other accounts, it is uncertain if the first shots were fired by the police or the demonstrators.[62] The "Dekembriana", as this incident is known, was the beginning of the 37-day Battle of Athens. Following a ceasefire agreement known as Treaty of Varkiza, ELAS laid down the majority of its weapons and dissolved all of its units. However, right-wing groups, including elements which had collaborated with the Germans, seized this opportunity to persecute leftists, including many KKE members. Main article: Democratic Army of Greece This Civil War involved two sides. On the one side was the internationally recognised Greek Government, led by Konstantinos Tsaldaris and, later, Themistoklis Sophoulis, which was elected in the 1946 elections which the KKE boycotted. On the other was the Democratic Army of Greece, of which the KKE was the only major political force, formally declared in December 1946. On 24 December 1946, the KKE along with AKE, formally declared the establishment of the Provisional Democratic Government under the premiership of Markos Vafiadis. According to EAM figures, in the few months after the Treaty of Varkiza, the anti-communist violence on the Greek mainland had resulted in the imprisonment or exile of 100,000 ELAS partisans and EAM members, the deaths of 3,000 EAM officials and members, the rapes of between 200 and 500 women, the burning of houses, etc.[63] According to the official KKE history, in its efforts to uphold the Treaty of Varkiza but also in its desire to protect its supporters from attacks by right-wing militias, the KKE leadership was caught in a contradiction that gave time to government, which enjoyed British support, to reorganize the state based on forces that had collaborated with the German occupation (state officials, high-ranking military and police officers, and militia units).[31] The KKE Central Committee issued a directive to all party forces not to engage in any armed conflict with these groups but to try to prevent attacks by other means. This caused confusion among the majority of its supporters, and served to weaken the party organisation across the country.[64] Large groups had returned to their partisan hideouts in the mountains and gradually formed smaller partisan units. As most of the ELAS armoury had been surrendered under the terms of the Varkiza treaty, these units armed themselves with weapons seized from attacks on militia units armed, which had been by the police, as well as on police stations. Forming a critical mass by mid 1946, these units forced the KKE leadership to change its "neutral" position and, in summer 1946, to study a plan of forming a partisan army with the officers and fighters that were still free. On 26 October 1946, KKE militia units attacked the police station in Litochoro, armed their forces and founded the Central Greece Command of the Democratic Army of Greece (DSE). After this successful operation, the remaining, scattered groups followed the party line and reorganized the pre-Varkiza Treaty ELAS formations all over the country. The KKE's political influence and organization structure helped form units even in the Aegean Islands of as Mytilene, Chios, Ikaria, Samos, and Crete.[31][65] In 1947, the KKE and its allies that participated in the Civil War formed the Provisional Democratic Government. Apart from issues regarding the war effort, the Provisional Government had to deal with issues regarding the "People's Law" in the territories controlled by the DSE. These had to do with the judicial, financial, and political systems, etc. As the Provisional Government was based on political forces which aimed to establish a social state, its decisions were driven by this political agenda. The self-determination of national minorities living in Greece was one of them. The Provisional Government and the KKE still, at this state, intended to establish a People's Republic of Greece in which all nationalities would work together in a Socialist state.[66] An article written by Nikos Zachariadis expressed the KKE's strategy after the envisioned victory of the Democratic Army of Greece regarding what was then known as the "Macedonian Issue": "The Macedonian people will acquire an independent, united state with a coequal position within the family of free peoples’ republics within the Balkans, within the family of Peoples’ Republics to which the Greek people will belong. The Macedonian people of Aegean Macedonia is today fighting for this independent united state with a coequal position and is helping the DSE with all its soul ...".[67] The policy of self-determination for Macedonia within a People's Republic was reiterated during the 5th KKE Central Committee meeting held in January 1949, which declared that the Macedonian people participating in the liberation struggle would find their full national re-establishment as they want giving their blood for this acquisition ... Macedonian Communists should pay great attentions to foreign chauvinist and counteractive elements that want to break the unity between the Greek and Macedonian (Slavomacedonian) people. This will only serve the monarcho-fascists and British imperialism ...” [68] The fatal blow to the KKE and the DSE, was political, not military. In June of that year, as a result of the Tito-Stalin split, the Soviet Union and its satellites broke off relations with Yugoslavia, depriving the Yugoslavian support in land and ammunition and at the same time creating political problems in its ranks with agents working against trying to bring confusion related with the "Macedonian Issue". At the same time, the National Army found a talented commander in General Alexander Papagos. In August 1949, Papagos launched a major counter-offensive against DSE forces in northern Greece, code-named "Operation Torch". The plan was the National Army to gain control of the border line with Albania so as to surround and defeat DSE forces (8,500 fighters). The DSE suffered heavy losses from the operation, but managed to retreat its units within Albania.[69] Charilaos Florakis, whose nom-de-guerre was Kapetan Yiotis, was a DSE-appointed Brigadier General during this battle. The DSE bestowed military titles on to its leading partisan leaders. Moreover, the title of Kapetan was frequently adopted by DSE Guerrillas.[70] According to non-communist accounts, the DSE was an irregular partisan army employing guerrilla tactics.[71] According to KKE historiography, DSE was organized as a regular army adopting partisan tactics.[14][72][73][74] Florakis was ordered by DSE High Command to re-enter with his battalion to the Grammos mountain and try to establish connection with all the forces of DSE that remained within Greece. The battalion indeed reached small DSE units south of Grammos up to Evritania, and retreated thereafter. As the retreat operation was deemed successful by KKE, and Florakis enhanced his position as a key-official of KKE. On 28th of August 1949 the Civil War in Greece ended with the DSE forces defeated military and politically and KKE entering a new phase in its history.[75] The country entered the post Civil War era, with the Communist Party of Greece banned and the consequences of the civil war haunting the Greek political setting ever since. In 1989, with a law of the 3-months government between Coalition of Left (That KKE participated) and the right-wing party of New Democracy, the political consequences of the Civil War were finally lifted: DSE was recognized as an equal Greek army to the National Army, and DSE fighters were named "DSE fighters" instead of "Communist Gangfighters" (""). The war was named "The Civil War of Greece" instead of "The War against the gangs and thieves" ("") that was the official state name for that era. [edit] Post-War Era After the Civil War, the KKE was declared illegal and most of its prominent members had to flee Greece, go underground, or provide a signed declaration that they renounced communism to avoid prosecution according to Law 504. This law was issued in 1948 by the King, and determined that all KKE members and friends were spies of the Soviet Union. A large number of KKE members were either prosecuted, jailed or exiled. Prominent members of the KKE were tried and executed, including Nikos Beloyannis in 1952 and Nikos Ploumpidis in 1954. The execution of Ploumpidis was the last such execution by the post-Civil War governments. The fear of widespread reaction from left-wing citizens curbed further executions and eventually led to the gradual release of most political prisoners. "In 1955 there were 4,498 political prisoners and 898 exiles; in 1962 there were 1,359 prisoners and 296 exiles."[76] But under the prevailing anti-communist rules, communists and KKE-sympathizers were barred from the public sector and lived under a repressive anticommunist surveillance system.[77] Such discrimination against communists was partially relieved with the legalization of KKE in 1974, and abolished in the 1980s. During this period of illegality, the KKE supported the United Democratic Left (EDA) party. Former King Constantine claims that in 1964 he proposed to George Papandreou (senior) that the KKE be legalized. According to the former monarch, Papandreou refused to comply so as not to lose his party's left-wing supporters.[78] This allegation cannot be verified, as it was expressed after Papandreou's death. Moreover, Constantine's public statements regarding communism during the 1960s renders the veracity of this allegation questionable. [edit] Main article: Greek military junta of 1967-1974 On 21 April 1967, a group of right-wing Greek Army colonels, lead by Georgios Papadopoulos successfully carried out a coup d'tat on the pretext of imminent "communist threat", establishing what became known as the Regime of the Colonels. All political parties, including EDA, were dissolved, and civil liberties were suppressed for all Greek citizens. KKE members were persecuted along with other opponents of the junta. In 1968, a crisis escalated between the KKE's two main factions. The crisis was triggered by the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia that crushed the Prague Spring. The brutality of the event led many Greek communists to break with KKE that was loyal to the Socialist Republic's policy and to follow the nascent Eurocommunist line, which favored a more pluralistic approach to socialism. A relatively large group split from the KKE, forming what became known as the Communist Party of Greece (Interior). The spin-off party forged bonds with Eurocommunist parties such as the Italian Communist Party. Its supporters referred to KKE as the KKE (Exterior) (" "), inferring that the KKE's policies were dictated by the Politburo of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Despite the difficulties derived from the split, KKE continued its opposition against the Greek Junta throughout the next 6 years. Its political line for escalating political fighting against the regime was expressed via small or big worker strikes and small topic violent outbursts all over the country.[79][80] Its power was rising inside the Universities were the newly founded KNE was working underground. All this time KKE underground forces were working closely with other political groups of the center or left, such as PAM, within Greece and abroad. In many European Capitals anti-Junta committees were founded to support the struggle in Greece. [edit] Legalisation After the restoration of parliamentary democracy in 1974, Constantine Karamanlis legalised the KKE hoping to reclaim "a vital part of national memory".[81] In the 1974 elections the KKE participated with the KKE Interior and the EDA under the name of the United Left, receiving 9.36 per cent of the vote. In the elections from 1977 to 1989, the KKE participated on its own (see results below). [edit] Participation in government In 1944, KKE participated in the national unity government of George Papandreou, holding the positions of Minister of Finance, Minister of Agriculture, Minister of Labor, Minister of National Economy and Public Works, and Deputy Minister of Finance. In 1988, KKE and Greek Left (Greek:EAP, former KKE Interior), along with other left and center parties and organisations, formed the Coalition of the Left and Progress (Synaspismos). In the June 1989 elections Synaspismos gained 13.1 per cent of votes and joined a coalition with New Democracy to form a short-lived government amidst a political spectrum shaken by accusations of economic scandals against the previous administration of Andreas Papandreou's Panhellenic Socialist Movement. On November of the same year Synaspismos participated in the "Universal Government" with New Democracy and Panhellenic Socialist Movement which appointed Xenophon Zolotas as Prime Minister for 3 months. In 1991, KKE withdrew from Synaspismos. A portion of its members, however, left from the party and remained in Synaspismos, which evolved into a separate left-wing party. [edit] Splits and alliances There have been a series of splits throughout the party's history, the earliest one being the Trotskyist Organisation of Internationalist Communists of Greece. In 1956, after the 20th Conference of Communist Party of USSR, a fraction created the Group of Marxist-Leninists of Greece (OMLE), which split from party in 1964, becoming Organisation of Marxists-Leninists of Greece. In 1968, amidst the 1967-1974 dictatorship, a relatively big group split from KKE, forming KKE Interior. In 1988 KKE and Greek Left (former KKE Interior), along with other left parties and organisations, formed the Coalition of the Left and Progress. At the same year the vast majority of members and officials from Communist Youth of Greece (KNE), the KKE's youth wing, split to form the New Left Current (NAR), taking the majority of its youth in major cities, especially in Thessaloniki. In the early 2000s, a small group of major party officials, such as Mitsos Kostopoulos, left the party and formed the Movement for the United in Action Left (KEDA), which in the 2007 legislative election participated in the Coalition of the Radical Left. [edit]   KNE logo. KKE's youth organization is the Communist Youth of Greece, KNE, which closely supports KKE's goals and strategic targets. [edit] Current activities The KKE stands in elections and has representatives in the Greek Parliament, local government, and the European Parliament, where its 2 MEPs sit with the European United Left - Nordic Green Left. It publishes the daily newspaper Rizospastis. It also publishes the political and theoretical journal Komounistiki Epitheorisi (Communist Review) every two months and a journal with educational issues, Themata Paideias. [edit] General Secretaries Yannis Kordatos (February 1922-). Expelled from the party on charges of "distorting marxism." Nikolaos Sargologos (November 1922-). Expelled from the party on charges of "espionage." Thomas Apostolidis (September 1923-). Expelled from the party on charges of "opportunism". Pandelis Pouliopoulos (December 1924-). Expelled from the party on charges of being a "provocateur". Eleutherios Stavridis (1924-1926). Resigned from the party. Pastias Giatsopoulos (September 1926-). Expelled from the party on charges of "liquidarism". Andronikos Haitas (March 1927-). Expelled from the party and executed in the USSR in 1935. Nikolaos Zachariadis (1931/36). Andreas Tsipas (July 1941-September 1941). Expelled from the party on charges of "adventurism." Georgios Siantos (January 1942-1945). Expelled from the party on charges of being an "agent provocateur." Nikolaos Zachariadis (1945-1956). Expelled from the party, reportedly committed suicide in the USSR. Apostolos Grozos (1956) Ответ #1 : 25/08/10 , 02:38:54 » Делегация ЦК Компартии Греции во главе с членом Политбюро Центрального Комитета Георгиосом Мариносом нанесла в понедельник визит поочерёдно Посольствам Ирана, Ливана, Сирии и дипломатическим представителям Палестинской администрации в Греции. 25.08.2010 Она повстречалась с Послом Ирана Махди Ханардустом, с Послом Сирии Хундой Алхумси, с главой дипломатического представительства Палестинской администрации Самиром Аму Газеле и с атташе Посольства Ливана Ранией Эл Абдала. Цель этих встреч – информирование КПГ о последних событиях, а также презентация позиции партии об опасной для греческого народа и для народов региона обстановки, формируемой империалистическими планами, в которых участвует греческое правительство ПАСОК. Георгиос Маринос выразил глубокую озабоченность КПГ касательно развития событий в обширном регионе Восточного Средиземноморья и Ближнего Востока. После встреч он сделал следующее заявление об опасных для народов процессах: Заявление Г. Мариноса: Правительство ПАСОК глубже ввязывается в империалистические планы Народы региона, классовое рабочее движение и все антиимпериалистические силы - силы за мир должны постоянно быть бдительными и готовыми к борьбе. «Долой новый порядок империалистов. Солидарность с народом Палестины». «Империалистические центры разрабатывают новые военные сценарии и вьют дипломатические сети против народов Ирана, Ливана, Сирии и Палестины, тем самым подготавливая опасные события. Наш визит в посольства вышеупомянутых стран выражает в первую очередь солидарность КПГ с народами региона. Все эти годы наша партия и классовое рабочее и антиимпериалистическое движение выражают солидарность не только на словах, но и постоянными последовательными действиями. Сегодня мы сталкиваемся с особо угрожающими военными ультиматумами США и Израиля против Ирана, которые выдвигаются при поощрении ЕС и НАТО. Вне зависимости от предлогов, используемых империалистами для прикрытия своих агрессивных действий, эти действия должны быть массово осуждены народами. Одновременно имеют место предупредительные рейды израильского военного аппарата на границе с Ливаном. Они свидетельствуют о растущей агрессии израильского государства, нацеленной на расхищение энергетических ресурсов обширного региона в противовес правам Ливана. В этих условиях сильней проявилось вмешательство греческого правительства ПАСОК в дела Ближнего Востока. КПГ осудило это вмешательство. Недавнее «активное» присутствие греческого премьер-министра и председателя Социалистического Интернационала в регионе свидетельствует об углублении отношений нашей страны и ЕС с израильским государством, в то время как продолжается убийство народа Палестины. Взаимные визиты греческого и израильского правительств и последовавшие заявления не имеют ничего общего с интересами народов региона, народов Греции и Израиля. Напротив, они доказывают, и углубляют экономическое, политическое и военное сотрудничество двух стран, во имя увеличения прибыльности капитала. В условиях капиталистического кризиса и обострения межимпериалистических противоречий и конкуренции, особенно ширится потребность капитала в сырье, в эксплуатации и контроле над источниками богатства, в инвестициях и рынках. Одновременно положение на Ближнем Востоке усложнилось в силу усиления империалистической агрессивности. Греческая буржуазия стремиться взять на себя активную роль, в противовес якобы «пропалестинской» роли, которую, в последнее время, играет в регионе турецкая буржуазия. Это выявляет, что за «круглыми столами» и «расширенными греко-турецкими министерскими советами» кроется обострение и так жёсткой конкуренции между буржуазией не только самых сильных империалистических стран, но и буржуазией, стремящимися играть региональную роль в империалистических планах. В этой геополитической игре каждая держава участвует в соответствии со своей экономической, военной и политической силой в империалистической пирамиде, а также согласно своему положению в международной системе и своему географическому и стратегическому положению. Несмотря на то, что в нашей стране это многостороннее сотрудничество правительства ПАСОК с израильским государством пытаются представить как «дипломатический успех», на самом деле, оно является вызывающим оправданием империалистической агрессивности израильской стороны. Тем самым правительство ПАСОК вновь «пачкает руки в крови» жертв Израиля, США, НАТО и ЕС. Поэтому правительство ПАСОК и поддерживающие его политическую линию партии капитала НД и ЛАОС должны столкнуться с массовым народным осуждением. К тому же, недавние заявления Папандреу и Нетаняху показали, что результат их двусторонних встреч – оказание бОльшего давления и шантаж Палестинцев. Они пытаются привести Палестинцев к «диалогу» с «дулом пистолета у виска», чтобы обсудить, сколько те готовы утратить. В то же время они беспрестанно убивают Палестинцев, строится позорная стена, массовые поселения и недавно было нападение на флотилию у берегов Газы. Итак, вновь подтверждается лицемерность утверждений о том, что у греческого правительства отличные отношения с арабскими странами и с Палестиной. Греческое правительство говорит о равной ответственности Палестинцев, отождествляя жертву с агрессором. Оно имеет отличные отношения с монополиями, а не с народами региона. КПГ считает, что классовая антиимпериалистическая борьба должна усилиться и предотвратить планы так называемой «демократизации обширного Ближнего Востока», посредством создания «Нового Ближнего Востока». За последние годы эти планы уже натолкнулись на сопротивление народов региона, в том числе вооружённое. Основная задача народной борьбы – осуждение НАТО, готовящего новую стратегию против народов и новую догму, которая будет обсуждена на встрече в верхах в ноябре 2010 г. в Лиссабоне. Эта догма предвидит усиление интервенций против народов под разными предлогами. Среди них помимо «терроризма» фигурируют внутренняя и энергетическая безопасность, политические и экономические кризисы, вплоть до климатических изменений. Становится всё более очевидным, что Международного Право, существовавшего во время активной деятельности Советского Союза и социалистической системы по международным вопросам, больше не существует. В этом же направлении движется ООН, которая является полем межимпериалистических противоречий и инструментом реализации империалистических планов. КПГ продолжит бороться с империалистическими союзами, категорически выступать против участия нашей страны в отправке военных сил заграницу. Сегодня мы требуем возвращения десятков греческих военных миссий, находящихся за пределами страны. Не только потому, что они сопряжены с большими расходами, в то время как во имя экономического кризиса урезаются расходы на здравоохранение и образование, а также потому, что эти военные миссии выполняют планы против других народов, и ни в коей мере не служат интересам рабочего класса и народных слоев нашей страны. Характерно то, что интервенция США и НАТО в Ирак и Афганистан привела к тем же результатам: к смертям, бедности и увеличению прибыли капитала. КПГ защищает право каждого народа суверенно определять путь развития своей страны, без внешних империалистических вмешательств и защитников». В заключении Георгиос Маринос подчеркнул: «С нашей точки зрения, рабочая - народная борьба в Восточном Средиземноморье и на Ближнем Востоке должна обретать единые классовые, политические признаки для формирования фронта, который не только будет противостоять планам империалистов, а будет, в соответствии с условиями каждой страны, бороться против подстрекания религиозных, сепаратистских, национальных отделений и противоречий, будет работать на свержение власти монополий, на построение социализма. Требуем: • Возвращения всех греческих военных миссий, находящихся за пределами страны. • Уважения к суверенитету и территориальной целостности каждой страны. Выступаем против всех империалистических угроз и интервенций, проводимых под любым предлогом. • Вывода израильской армии со всех оккупированных арабских территорий (Голанские высоты, Западный берег и т.д.). • Полного демонтажа поселений и создание около Израиля палестинского государства (Сектор Газы и Западный берег) со столицей Восточным Иерусалимом. • Решения вопроса беженцев. Возвращения Палестинских беженцев на основе резолюции 194 Генеральной Ассамблеи ООН и согласно другим резолюциям Совета Безопасности ООН. • Немедленного освобождения Израилем всех Ливанцев и Палестинцев политических заключенных, а также всех Палестинцев-министров и депутатов. • Восстановления территориальной целостности Ливана и вывода израильской армии со всех оккупированных территорий южного Ливана, в том числе и из региона Себаа. Призываем народы региона, классовое рабочее движение и все антиимпериалистические силы – силы за мир быть постоянно бдительными и готовыми к борьбе».
