The Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace (EEDYE) denounces the government for the extension of the "Greece-US Defense Co-operation Agreement".
The US will continue to have the Souda base and the full range of its bases in the country at the disposal of their war plans. The SYRIZA-ANEL government engages the country more deeply in imperialist plans and wars.
The Souda base has fulfilled and fulfills a special mission to the imperialist wars in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, in the recent US missile attack against the Syrian people. The US-NATO staff has congratulated the governments of ND and PASOK, the SYRIZA-ANEL government on their anti- people’s decisions , and has stated that this base is a determinant factor in the preparation and conduct of imperialist wars.
Both the government and all the bourgeois parties bear tremendous responsibilities to the Greek people for the great dangers that they are exposing it.
These developments require readiness and vigilance.
• Strengthen the anti-imperialist struggle against US-NATO-EU
• Strengthen our efforts to close the base of Souda and all foreign bases in Greece
• Disengagement from NATO and the EU with our people master in its homeland.
