Message of condolences of the CC of KKE to the Communist Party of Chile

The CC of KKE expresses its sorrow for the death of the comrade Luis Corvalán, a revolutionary and leading cadre of the communist movement, general secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of Chile from 1958 to 1989.

Hs name and his action have been inextricably linked with the struggle of the communist and workers’ movement for the democratic and popular rights, for social justice, for socialism.

Comrade Luis Corvalán struggled in difficult periods; he confronted the dictatorship of Pinochet, the persecutions, the imprisonments, the political exile heroically and remained unwavering in the struggle for socialism-communism.

Even after the overthrow of socialism in the USSR, where he had lived as a political refugee, he did not lose his faith to Marxism Leninism, he firmly defended the necessity of the new communist society, the only alternative to the barbarity of capitalism.

Last year, in August 2009 Luis Corvalán accepted the international call of KKE and signed along with 600 personalities from tens of countries the statement condemning the unacceptable equation of communism-fascism, attempted by the European Union (EU) and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Molotov- Ribbentrop Pact.

The Greek communists will always keep in their memory the great Chilean communist leader who dedicated his life to the struggle of the working class. Please convey our condolences to his family and his comrades.
