Communists!

The following announcement appeared in the French Communist paper L’Humanité  on January 5th
A STATEMENT OF THE
 COMMUNIST PARTY OF
 GREECE.

Athens, January 7th.— A delegation of Communists appeared at the Royal Palace. It made a statement to the effect that the Communist Party, which it represented, would co-operate with the functionaries of the regime, since it considered King George II a bulwark against Fascism and against any autocratic regime.
