Central Statement 150913

Bilten-logo  PR has already been attacking the ideological position of SYRIZA due to its
devastating impact on Greece's impoverished masses. PR has supported those forces
that clearly distanced themselves from SYRIZA, or actively conducted propaganda in
Greek masses against the reformist position and capitulating.

  However, the PR considers that this ideological battle against SYRIZA is already
won, primarily due to the very practice of SYRIZA so far. On the other hand, the battle
against reformism in the Greek Left movement is not won. And it is not only a situation
in Greek Left movement.
  Moreover, the PR considers that the Greek left parties which declaratively stand
on revolutionary positions went a step back concerning the upcoming elections.
  This step back has already been made during the previous referendum when the left
parties were not sufficiently engaged in mobilization of the masses and strengthening
the opposition to SYRIZA. Now they go one further step back by participating in the
upcoming elections.

  In the current situation when the war and conflicts are approaching the Balkans,
and particularly when the parliamentary life in Greece suffered a complete defeat,
whereas the will of the people means nothing for the ruling elite, who are only servants
of big capital, any participation in the parliamentary life is nothing but capitulation
before the class enemy and imperialism.

  We believe that the decision of all those so called revolutionary organizations to
participate in these elections, is a capitulation and the direct continuation of SYRIZA
position and politics.

  PR strongly believes that there is no need for any propaganda to boycott the
elections, but only to act against the elections. And that there would be a part of the
Greek masses to support that call.

  A new fascism is rising, the alliances between imperialists are getting stronger,
the conflicts between them are already happening, while the masses started to rise up
all over the world. Therefore, those who identify themselves as revolutionaries and
communists must not advocate and support the action within and by the rules of
bourgeois parliamentary system, but they should direct masses and lead them to
oppose the system instead. Otherwise, this is not considered only a defeat, but also
historically wrong and it opens the opportunity of joining masses to fascist parties.
