To: The Central Committee, Communist Party of Greece 

6th July 2019 

Dear comrades, 

The Workers Party of Ireland sends warm comradely greetings and solidarity to the Communist Party of Greece on the eve of the parliamentary elections in Greece to be held on 7th July 2019. We have observed the confidence and optimism of the party militants demonstrated in the pre-election rallies held by the KKE, including the huge rallies in Thessaloniki and in Syntagma Square, Athens, addressed by the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumpas. As comrade Koutsoumpas has stated: “Every next government of anti-people management will be the same and worse than the previous one” and “”Progress does not mean sucking the life out of an entire people in order to give it back to a few monopolies …” 

The policies of the so-called “left” SYRIZA party, the right-wing New Democracy party and the social-democratic KINAL have nothing to offer the working class of Greece and its allies except further misery and impoverishment and dangerous international stratagems in the interests of the monopolies with the USA, the EU and NATO which threaten the peace of the region and the world. 

Tomorrow, a resolute, strong, principled KKE presents Greek workers, small farmers, the self-employed, pensioners, women and young people with a clear vision of a better future, where the contemporary demands of the working people are to the fore, where the social needs of the working class can be satisfied, where oppression and exploitation can be ended, where the capitalist system is abolished and where an emancipated working class controls its own destiny. The KKE keeps hope alive. 

Dear comrades, 

The Workers’ Party of Ireland sends our best wishes and solidarity to the leadership, the militants and supporters of the KKE and KNE. The struggle of the KKE is also our struggle. We wish our comrades in the KKE success in the elections taking place tomorrow and in the continuing struggle to strengthen the resistance of the Greek people; establish workers’-people’s power, for the overthrow of capitalism and the construction of the new socialist-communist society. 

Victory to the KKE! 

With sincere comradely greetings, 

Michael Donnelly
