Dimitris Koutsoumbas, started his speech as follows:
“We are welcoming you in Piraeus, the city where the KKE was born in 1918, since it is here where the 1st founding Congress of the Socialist Labor Party of Greece (SEKE), which was later renamed into Communist Party of Greece, took place".
We are completing 100 years of struggles and sacrifices, remaining the only actually new party of the Greek society. Because the KKE is the only party that fights for the definite abolition of the exploitation of man by man.
In honor of the 100 years since the founding of the KKE, we will give all our powers for the Party to achieve even wider, deeper, stronger ties with the working class, the Greek people. We will give all our powers so that, with powerful Party Organizations, the struggle for the overthrow of the barbarity of capitalist power, for socialism, to be strengthened."
