Communist Party (KKE) secretary general Dimitris Koutsoumbas in a statement for the symbolic union rallies on Labour Day said "we are celebrating the Labour Day of 2020 in the special conditions formed by the pandemic but with the eyes fixed on the future during which we will come across the dilemma , the main question that needs an answer "Socialism or barbarism".
"We answer Socialism" said Koutsoumbas adding that " a new fair society is needed, with the working class and the people really in the authority. Το protect the people's health and for prosperity to the Greek people".
Earlier on Friday, Koutsoumbas laid a wreath at the firing range of Kaisariani honouring the 200 Greek communists that were executed by the Nazi occupation authorities as reprisal for the killing of a German general by Greek Resistance forces.
"Today we are paying tribute to the 200 communists that were executed by the fascists here in Kaisariani on May 1, 1944. We continue their struggle for the ideals and the final reversal of capitalism, which bears and nourishes fascism" Koutsoumbas said.
