Greece: Communist Party of Greece blocks NATO convoy

By Communist Party of Greece (KKE)

KKE stops NATO convoy.

Fight Back News Service is circulating this account of an important protest by the Communist Party of Greece (KKE).

On Tuesday, May 31, members of the Thesprotia Sectoral Organization of the KKE proceeded with a symbolic blockade of a convoy of 17 NATO military vehicles from the UK returning from a NATO exercise in the Balkans, outside the port of Igoumenitsa.

The protesters demanded that the port of Igoumenitsa should not be used as a base of the imperialists, sending a message against our country’s involvement in the imperialist war.

Police forces attempted to intimidate the protesters; however, their efforts failed thanks to the determination and composure of the communists. After blocking the road for some time, the members of the KKE left in an organized manner.
