To the Communist Party of Greece (Marxist-Leninist)
Dear comrades, on behalf of Serve the People – Communist League of Norway we send you the warmest greetings and wishes of success on the occasion of your 7th conference.
This greeting aims to strengthen the solidarity between our two organisations and the Norwegian and the Greek working class.
Greece and Norway are two extremely different countries, but the value of international solidarity cannot be underestimated. There are of course also similarities in our struggle, as there is in communist work all over the world.
The 20th century started with great success for the international workers’ movement with the October Revolution. By the end of the century however, the communist movement was weak through great anti-communist influence on the working class and through the counter-revolutions in USSR and The People’s Republic of China. Many people left Marxist-Leninist ideology through these times, but now, communist organisations in many countries are again growing and gaining new members and supporters. Communist thoughts are winning new supporters and communist organising is experiencing an offensive in the time of crisis – a crisis created by capitalism itself. More and more people are seeing that capitalism means solely new crises and wars.
The crisis has struck Greece extremely hard, and at the moment, the leading member countries in the imperialist European Union discuss what measures they can take to help the Greek capitalists to avoid the working class protests against the politics of crisis lead by Greek politicians. The working class is on the offensive in Greece, and communist ideology is spreading among more and more people as a consequence of this. A correct party line and hard-working, dedicated cadres are decisive for the success of a communist party. We have great tasks in front of us, but through hard work, studies and a good fighting spirit victory can be won for the proletariat and their allies.
Long live the KKE-ML!
Long live international solidarity!
