The people must continue to express even more actively their multifaceted solidarity with the Palestinian people
The Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued the following statement on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people (29 November):
"This year's International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people is marked by Israel's criminal attack, which claimed the lives of more than 15.000 Palestinians, mainly in Gaza Strip, including 6.150 children, 4.000 women, 207 doctors, nurses and paramedics, 26 members of the Civil Defense and 70 journalists, while 7.000 more are missing, mostly under the rubble, including 4.700 children and women.
There is no room for complacency concerning the temporary and fragile ceasefire which cannot cover up the war crimes committed by the Israeli state. The KKE, continuing the organization ofvarious eventsin solidarity with the heroic Palestinian people, expresses its full support for the just struggle of the Palestinians, which inspires the popular struggle of the workers all over the world.
With the long-standing support of the US, the EU, NATO, including the Greek government and its allies, the aggression of the Israeli state in Palestine and the wider region is intensifying, to the detriment of all the rights of the Palestinian people, risking a more general conflagration. The right side of history is the one of social progress, the end of all foreign occupation, with the peoples being masters in their own land. Today it is even more necessary to strengthen internationalist solidarity and action against the Israeli occupation, imperialist interventions and the plans of the bourgeois classes.
The KKE calls on the people to ignore the dirty propaganda of the supporters of the Israeli occupation and to continue to express even more actively theirmultifaceted solidarity with the Palestinian people, condemning the daily crimes of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians anddemanding:
- The end of the Israeli occupation and its consequences.
- The creation of a united and independent Palestinian state, on the borders of 4 June 1967, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
- The right of all Palestinian refugees to return to their homes, on the basis of the relevant UN resolutions.
-The immediate release of all Palestinian and other political prisoners held in Israeli prisons.
