  • [01] Andreas Papandreou memorial service

    A memorial service was held at the tomb of late prime minister and PASOK party founder Andreas Papandreou at the First Cemetery in Athens at noon on Saturday, on the 12th anniversary of his death.

    The event was held in the presence of PASOK leader and son of the deceased George Papandreou and many party members.

    "Andreas, as the Greek people used to call him, always said 'Greece for the Greeks'. This phrase is always timely today as well, because today the Greek feels a stranger in his country, distanced from a government and a political system that does not respect him and does not protect him. On the contrary, it protects and covers up financial, political and party interests that are involved in corruption, black money, unaccountability and arbitrariness," Papandreou said.

    "I demand from this government that does not dare and that surrenders, a factfinding committee on the Siemens case as a start to deep and big reforms in our political system and I am determined to clash with the government and with the political system and with practices that are unfair for Greece and the Greeks," the PASOK leader added.

    The memorial service was attended by the brother of George Papandreou, Nikos, and the brother of Andreas Papandreou, George, as well as by many Parliamentary deputies and members of PASOK.

    [02] KKE on EU summit

    The Communist Party of Greece (KKE), commenting on Friday on the outcome of the European Union summit, said that the decisions taken at the summit prove that expectations created that the EU would take measures against high prices were pure mockery.

    KKE added that the EU is the first to be guilty of high prices, because it is guiding and protecting the strengthening of capitalist monopolies and cartels with its decisions.

    It went on to say that it is imposing the deregulated activity of capital, and it is jointly responsible for increases in fuel and food prices worldwide, while calling for the reversal of the EU's policy.

    High prices and poverty cannot be tackled with charity measures for the impoverished, KKE concluded and called on the working class to show "insubordination and disobedience towards the EU."
