GUE/NGL in mourning following death of Charalampos (Babis) Angourakis MEP

“Today is a sad day for our Group following the news from Athens of the death of our dear friend and comrade, Charalampos (Babis) Angourakis MEP,” GUE/NGL President Gabi Zimmer said today. 

“A fighter for workers internationally and a person of deep political conviction and integrity has been taken from us at just 63. Babis will be remembered for his strong resolve to struggle against capitalism, his commitment to peace and justice, as well as his warmth and friendship.”
“Our thoughts are with his family, friends and comrades in Greece and throughout the world.”
