On the new anti-communist measures in Slovakia

Statement of the Press Office of the CC

“The KKE denounces the new anti-communist offensive which is developing on this occasion in Slovakia. By law from the 1st of September “anyone who refuses to accept or attempts to justify the crimes of the regime which was based on the communist ideology” will be criminally prosecuted and will be punished with prison sentences ranging from 6 months to three years.

The repeated instances of anticommunism, in more and more countries in the EU, the attempts to declare the 23rd of August as a day equating communism with fascism, are proof that the slanderous anti-communist hysteria is decided on and organized by the EU and the bourgeois class in every country.

The intensity of the anti-communism constitutes a necessary supplement to the anti-worker measures which are taken by capital in conditions of the sharpening contradictions and the deepening capitalist crisis. It is a concern for the capitalists that the broadest popular forces in the former socialist countries are nostalgic for socialism which they knew, in the face of the impasses of capitalism, unemployment, poverty, destitution, the abolition of labour-popular rights and gains. Nevertheless the capitalists are doubly concerned, because the communists, despite the difficulties, are playing a leading role in the organization of the popular struggles, highlighting the need for the overthrow of capitalist barbarity and the construction of socialism-communism.

The KKE expresses its solidarity with the CP Slovakia and will give all its efforts in increasing the pressure so that the anti-communist measures are revoked and the persecutions in Slovakia, as well as in the rest of Europe, cease and in strengthening the struggle for socialism-communism.”
