The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) in the European Parliament (EP) voted for the resolution condemning the anti-communist and racist government of Hungary.

The delegation of the KKE in the EP voted for the resolution condemning the government of Hungary but also denounced the equally anti-immigrant attitude of the EU. The KKE in its press release explained that "the positive vote" about Orban’s government is a political position against the policy of anti-communism of the Hungarian government, its racist policy against refugees and immigrants and every kind of racist discriminations.

A delegation from the Hungarian Workers' Party (Munkaspart), leaded by President Gyula Thürmer, paid a visit to Turkey in August on the invitation of the Communist Party of Turkey (TKP). Bilateral meetings were held regarding various matters such as the struggle in workplaces, youth works and anti-communism. Thürmer answered the questions of soL HD. Thirty years after the dissolution of socialism in Hungary, Thürmer asserts that the time is working for us at this stage of capitalist crisis.

soL: Welcome to İstanbul. We hope you had a nice time here. First of all, what was the purpose of your visit?

Gyula Thürmer: Thank you very much for your question. It is my third or fourth visit to İstanbul. We represent here, the Hungarian Workers’ Party. We, in Hungary, are living very similar situation like you do in Turkey. We know much about the activity of the Communist Party of Turkey and we arrived at İstanbul to study your experience to learn a lot from your party and to use your experience in our fight against capitalism in Hungary.

Hungary has erected a vast fence and is mobilising troops to keep out refugees, not stinting on forceful methods. European leaders have responded to this humanitarian crisis merely with cold, “rational” calculations.

The »West Balkans Way«, taken by thousands of refugees who hope to enter Western Europe, has found itself thrust to the top of the agenda at the Vienna Summit, which opened this Thursday 27th August. Syrians, Afghans and Iraqis, fleeing persecution and war, pass in their thousands through Turkey, then onwards through Greece, Macedonia (which has now declared a state of emergency) and Serbia before hitting Hungary, the door to the Schengen Area.
