SYRIZA’s message on 28th October anniversary

Honoring those who fought on the mountains of Albania and in national resistance against occupiers of Greece “is an act of remembrance for the demand for social justice and political freedom,” SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance said on Wednesday, ahead of the 28th October national holiday (‘Ohi Day’).

Eighty-one years after Greek people’s struggle against fascism and Nazism, the party said one remembers “the bitter moments our homeland experienced during World War II – the thousands of dead, the executions at cities and villages, the martyred villages and the Holocaust of Jewish communities.”

The greatest honor for Greeks who resisted voluntarily and in organized manner is to continue their legacy and the struggle “against any form of modern totalitarianism, fascism and its mutations, and against the dogma of submission to any masters.”
