ATHENS – Greek Communist Party Aleka Papariga has denounced the roundup of 6,000 immigrants, under the code name Xenios Zeus, as inhuman and violating their human rights. Papariga stated that, “The Greek police forces are hiding an alternative reality from the public – the fact that the number of the incoming immigrants will continually pullulate as long as Greece’s allies such as USA, EU and Israel will continue their intervention in Syria, creating thousands of refugees”.
The Communists claimed that the huge problem of the continuous accumulation of refugees cannot be solved through measures that it said only promote brutality and anger and asked the government to give travel insurances to all immigrants who want to move to other countries of the EU, or their home countries. The party also asked for Greece to stop detaining African and Asian immigrants and to stop intervening in Syria, where battles are raging between government and rebel forces.
