The announcement of the demise of comrade Jiri Bures, Chairman of the civic organization “Soldiers against War” of the Czech Republic and retired Colonel of the Czechoslovakian Army, filled our hearts with deep sorrow.
Comrade Jiri Bures contributed actively to the struggle for peace, for a world without imperialist wars and exploitation.
Retired officers, members of the “MOVEMENT FOR THE NATIONAL DEFENCE” of Greece have met our comrade in many international meetings and activities. We recall, just one of them, the meeting of May 2005 in Athens on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the victory of the peoples over fascism upon invitation of the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace (EEDYE).
The “MOVEMENT FOR THE NATIONAL DEFENCE” of Greece expresses its sincere condolences to the family of Jiri Bures, to the Soldiers against War and to the Czech Peace Movement.
