GREETINGS ON THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF
THE LEGAL PUBLICATION OF “RIZOSPASTIS”
Dear comrades :
The Editorial Board of “SULONG!” (Forward!), the monthly organ of the CC of the PKP-1930, sends warmest comradely greetings to “RIZOSPASTIS” on the 40THanniversary of its legal publication this coming Saturday, September 27, 2014.
We take note that “RIZOSPASTIS” is the oldest newspaper in Greece, having been continuously published since 1908, and that this had become the newspaper of the KKE since 1920. Even during the fascist occupation and the succeeding imperialist-propped military dictatorship during the post-WW2 period, “RIZOSPASTIS” continued to be published and distributed clandestinely, giving guidance to the “underground”-led struggle for freedom and democracy.
It is to the merit of the KKE --- its office-bearers and entire membership --- that “RIZOSPASTIS” has been coming out on a daily basis since the 1974 restoration of bourgeois democracy and the legalization of the KKE. “RIZOSPASTIS” continues to serve as the KKE’s collective propagandist, educator and organizer among the Greek working class and popular masses.
Through the services of SOLIDNET, we receive some of the most important articles from “RIZOSPASTIS”, which are admirable for their consistent proletarian positions in pursuing the struggle against imperialism and its neo-fascist minions (such as the “Golden Dawn” gang in Greece, the neo-nazis in the Ukraine, and the various IS/jihadists in other countries) ; the struggle against the NATO-EU reactionaries and their social-democratic collaborators ; and the struggle for democracy and socialism.
On this happy anniversary, we wish “RIZOSPASTIS” every success in inspiring the Greek people’s struggle for socialism, and in helping to bring the KKE to political power.
With communist greetings,
SALVACION M. CORPUZ
