The Communist Organization of Greece (KOE) fully endorses the following statement of the Press Office of SYRIZA:

Press Statement

Today’s announcement of awarding the Peace Nobel Prize to the EU is an insult to the very Peoples of Europe, who are experiencing an undeclared war due to the barbaric antisocial policies of austerity. As a result of these policies, social cohesion and democracy are destroyed and wide parts of the society are being marginalized.

This awarding is not only hypocritical, but also indicative as to what the dominating circles consider as contribution to peace, especially if we take into account how much the Peoples in former Yugoslavia and in the Middle East have suffered because of the “humanitarian interventions” of the EU.
