13th IMCWP: An event of major importance

More than 100 foreign delegates that represent 83 communist and workers’ parties from 64 countries of the world, from all continents are expected to take part in the procedures of the 13th international Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties which will be hosted by the KKE in Athens on 9-11 December 2011.

The International Meetings of the CPs were initiated by the KKE 13 years ago, and met a big and positive response from dozens of CPs which understand the necessity for the communists to exchange views, to discuss the developments and the duties they face, to exchange experience but also to coordinate their joint activity.

These annual international meetings, which started in Athens, have been established as an important international event for the communist movement. They are no longer organized by a single Communist Party but by a Working Group of Communist Parties. Besides Athens, where they took place for 7 consecutive years they continued in Lisbon (Portugal), Minsk (Belarus), Sao Paolo (Brazil), New Delhi (India), Tshwane (South Africa). This year after a “trip” to 5 countries and 4 continents (Europe, America, Asia, Africa) they return to Athens (for this year).

The recognition of the significance of the workers’ and people’s struggles which have been developed over the recent years by the KKE , the All Workers’ Militant Front (PAME) and the other people’s rallies has played an important role in this decision. The slogan of the KKE in Acropolis in May 2010 which called on the people to rise up has become a symbol for the struggles that followed and continue up to now in Greece and in other countries and give hope and inspiration to the communists and the peoples who struggle.

The theme of the meeting this year is:

“Socialism is the future! The international situation and the experience of the communists 20 years after the counterrevolution in the USSR. The tasks for the development of the class struggle in conditions of capitalist crisis, imperialist wars, of the current popular struggles and uprisings, for working class-popular rights, the strengthening of proletarian internationalism and the anti-imperialist front, for the overthrow of capitalism and the construction of socialism”.

20 years after the overthrow of socialism in the USSR and the other countries of Central and Eastern Europe the largest meeting in terms of participation is expected to take place in Athens.
