Young Communist League of Greece

Young Communist League of Greece (Greek: Oμοσπονδία Kομμουνιστικών Nεολαιών Eλλάδας; OKNE) was the youth wing of the Communist Party of Greece. OKNE was founded on November 28, 1922. The journal I Neolaia (Η ΝΕΟΛΑΙΑ) became the official organ of OKNE.[1] OKNE was a section of the Communist Youth International.[2] Nikolaos Zachariadis became the leader of OKNE in 1924.[3] In 1925, OKNE was banned by the Greek authorities, along with the Communist Party itself and all its affiliated organizations.[1]
