I urge all our Greek comrades not to vote for Syriza tomorrow. There is a perfectly adequate communist part in Greece and it is much preferred to those social democrats. Although they are a trillion times more preferable to Golden dawn. Which reminds me, this week is Holocaust remembrance week. We should take a moment and remember the countless millions of innocent lives needlessly lost for a sick fascist agenda. All those supporting Golden dawn, you are scum.
I would vote Syriza, tbh. Not because I am excited about reformism, but because the KKE is clearly not doing what it needs to to win support in a time and country where the Left is ascendant. Rather a winning socialist party than a moribund and irrelevant communist party.
There was a really good article on the KKE posted on our RMB not long ago comrade G. Grabbing millions of votes with a massive membership the KKE is anything but "irrelevant and moribund".
It is perhaps the largest CP in the west and my party works very close with the Greek KKE
The most realistic thing they can hope to achieve is dragging Syriza to the Left vs. the obvious inertia to the Right you expect within bourgeois democracy.
There is the most revolutionary class consciousness in Greece, in 2010 general strikes happened often. We're talking about a population that is sick of social democracy, because it's what brought them austerity. I disagree with your position comrade G, I don't think it's fantasy to say that 20% of the Greek population is ready for revolutionary change, though I'm not incredibly educated on the issue either.
It was not long ago that the collapse of the Greek government seemed imminent and the KKE a true possible alternative, a revolutionary KKE. Not long ago at all, in fact during my early days of Nationstates. Greece is/was the only nation in the west to currently have revolutionary class consciousness with potential for a positive socialist revolution.
And this is due to the awesome efforts of the KKE and Greece's rough history with dictatorship and liberal bourgeois democracy.
"After all, Syriza is not the only left-wing party in Greece, and by some measures it�s not even the largest. In organizational terms, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) is bigger. Ignoring it, as most of the Left is content to do, means ignoring a force with important roots in the trade union movement and the longest history of all surviving Greek parties."
That's what we all wanted, but I think the workers will have to become disillusioned with Syriza first. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- The Pueblo incident was another biggest shame brought to the U.S. by the Korean people after its defeat in the Korean War (1950-1953).
On January 23, 1968, the Korean People's Army (KPA) captured the U.S. armed spy ship Pueblo near Ryo Islet in the territorial waters of the DPRK.
The spy ship had already made 17 rounds of espionage voyages against the DPRK as part of preparations for a new war against it. Therefore, the KPA's capture of the U.S. spy ship was a clear manifestation of the DPRK's right to self-defense.
But the U.S. branded the DPRK's self-defensive measure as a "violation of international law" and brought the Pueblo incident to the UN Security Council while trying to mislead the public opinion. Not content with this, the U.S. assembled large armed forces in and around the Korean Peninsula to make a reprisal.
In the light of the prevailing situation, the DPRK declared its stand that it would react to the U.S. "retaliation" with retaliation and to an all-out war with an all-out war, taking strong countermeasures.
The confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S. over the Pueblo incident continued for 11 months, but finally, the latter was obliged to send a letter of apology to the former due to its toughest stand.
The ship anchored in the Pothong River curving round the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum serves as a witness telling the doom of aggressors.
Kobane battle: Kurdish fighters 'capture strategic hilltop'
Kurdish fighters battling Islamic State (IS) militants in the town of Kobane on the Syria-Turkey border have captured a strategic hilltop, reports say.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and local officials said Kurdish units gained control of the hill after fierce clashes.
The Mishtenur hill overlooks the embattled town.
Monitors from the Observatory said its capture meant that key IS resupply routes were within the line of fire.
The Observatory said 11 Islamic State fighters were killed and large quantities of weapons and ammunition were seized.
A Kobane-based Kurdish official told the Associated Press news agency that the clashes had led to casualties on both sides.
Recapture of Mishtenur hill could prove to be a defining moment for the fate of Kobane, in the normally very slow pace of the war, says the BBC's Guney Yildiz.
It shows Kurdish fighters are able to confront IS in rural parts at the outskirts of the city despite the long-range weapons the jihadist militants have, he adds.
IS militants have been trying to gain control of Kobane since September, but have been meeting fierce resistance from Kurdish fighters.
