Greek Communist Party Leader Koutsoumbas Sees No End to Refugee Crisis

KoutsoumbasIn a radio interview for Real.gr., Greek Communist party leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas said the causes behind Europe’s refuge crisis are to be found in the global capitalist crisis and the imperialist interventions and wars that are inextricably connected with it.
He added that the refugee crisis intensifies the Greek economic crisis, and sees no light at the end of the tunnel.
Koutsoumbas also raised doubts about what a political leaders meeting chaired by the President of the Hellenic Republic can accomplish, and noted that the position of the Greek Communist party is that such a meeting can serve no real purpose, although he left open the possibility of participation by his party.
In this context, the leader of the Greek Communist party said that there is no such thing as a “unified national strategy” since there are “diametrically opposed ideas and principles [among political parties] that cannot converge.”
Furthermore, he stressed that the position of the Greek Communist Party is that there should be an end to the Dublin Regulation and to the Schengen Agreement, which is no longer active anyway.
Koutsoumbas described the talks of free movement in the EU to be a “fairy tale” since one country after another are building fences to keep refuges out.
